A groundbreaking ceremony was held Thursday for the construction of a new facility for Hoover Container Solutions in Scott.
The new state of the art facility will include 3,200 square feet of office space, approximately 20,000 square feet of warehouse and more than three acres of outside storage capacity.
The facility will expand Hoover's existing interior and exterior tank cleaning and recertification services and allow Hoover to provide other services to its customers including transportation and vendor managed inventory.
This expansion allows Hoover to expand its inventory of intermediate bulk containers (IBCs or tote tanks), offshore chemical tanks (1000 gallon to 6000 gallon), offshore containers (baskets, mudskips, half height containers) and customized workshop containers.
The new facility will be located at 824 I-10 South. The center is expected to open in November of 2013.
