Aug 1, 2012 12:00 PM
Girard Equipment Inc's Houston-area location, located in La Porte, Texas, has begun its makeover into a new multi-purpose facility. The redesign will allow more manufacturing and repair on a local level as well as provide enhanced customer support the greater Houston TX area and beyond.
The changes also will allow more support for the Girard Intermodal product line, launched in 2005. The facility will act as a support depot for all Intermodal and Domestic products, including Girard's extensive line of DOT407 vents. Repair work will be offered on site for customers, with pickup and delivery service available.
Brent Beamesderfer, Girard's Houston-area facility manager since 2006, has received extensive training in all aspects of the Girard product lines at the GEI Manufacturing Headquarters, located in Vero Beach FL. He is the main point of contact for customers needing assistance with Girard products and will oversee the repair and recertification of all Girard valves and vents at the facility.
In keeping with Girard Equipment's customer focus, the company is taking steps to implement an online support feature. The company's new website, being launched shortly, will feature an extended directory of support literature, as well as signup forms for training seminars conducted at the manufacturing facility in Vero Beach. In addition, Girard will start releasing instructional videos for its products on the company website and Facebook page, as well as on YouTube.
