Royal White Cement has leased a 23.8-acre site from Industrial Realty Group (IRG) along the Houston Ship Channel for its second terminal in Houston in a deal that positions the company to grow its cement and construction materials business.
IRG is working on site improvements for Royal White, which will utilize three structures that were previously used by a fertilizer company. The location, about six miles from Beltway 8 and Interstate 10 East, has capacity for 125 rail cars and heavy truck loading, according to the cement producer.
“We have long operated in the Houston market, but this direct access to storage and bulk unloading along the channel will provide greater efficiencies and flexibility allowing Royal White Cement to handle and store approximately 100,000 tons of multiple cementitious products such as slag, grey cement, and white cement,” said Marcel Fadi, owner of Royal White Cement.
Royal White has nine terminals across the U.S., including locations in Philadelphia, Atlanta, Savannah, Ga., Glendale, Ariz., and Long Beach and Stockton, Calif.
