Warehouse and training facility in the heart of Texas’ petrochemical hub

GMA’s new warehouse in Houston has been serving our customers since the middle of last year. 

Strategically located in La Porte on the south-east side of the city, and in the heart of Texas’ petrochemical hub, our customers receive prompt service and quicker deliveries of our garnet products to their site. 

Spanning 2137m2 of floor space, the warehouse has a storage capacity of up to 1000 tonnes of our packaged products. In addition, the warehouse serves as a collection centre for used garnet material which is deposited into roll-off hoppers. It is then transferred into two tonnes bulk bags and delivered to the nearest GMA recycling facility. Moreover, our Garnet Recycling System trailers are based at the warehouse and are available for rental in the US southern states. 

“This facility is more than just a warehouse and distribution centre,” GMA Americas President Rod Liebeck said. 

The facility has a full blast booth for testing various blasting products, and supports our blast team to provide in-house blast training to GMA customers using garnet abrasives. 

"This is part of our commitment to help our customers blast more productively while achieving the technical outcomes required," Rod added.
