2015 marks the founding of a new business location for J-Tec Material Handling in Houston, Texas. A milestone which is the logical sequel to the international successes they have been experiencing in the last 45 years. Ever since their acquisition by Katoen Natie in 1999, they have been experiencing substantial growth in overseas inquiries that have led to numerous Greenfield and Turnkey references worldwide. These global opportunities have prompted J-Tec to further optimize their services abroad. After starting up in Thailand and Brazil, they now proudly present: J-Tec Material Handling, Inc.
La Porte, Houston, Texas
Katoen Natie is a worldwide logistics player with over 150 terminals and logistic platforms in more than 26 countries spread over 5 different continents. In the United States, Katoen Natie is well represented with different business hubs in 5 different states. Such presence means an enormous advantage for J-Tec as every facility has the required infrastructure already in place.
After intensively analyzing various options, establishing J-Tec Material Handling, Inc. in La Porte, Houston became the most obvious choice. Their facility is situated in the Port of Houston, which is one of the world’s busiest and acts as a large and vibrant component of the regional economy. Additionally, Houston is served by three airports allowing J-Tec to maximize their services to their customers throughout the U.S.. As Houston is also the cradle of Katoen Natie’s successful U.S. adventure, they can feed on years of experience and know-how, giving J-Tec a substantial advantage.
The start of J-Tec Material Handling, Inc. ensures their NAFTA customers will get the attention and service level they can expect from J-Tec worldwide.
