SAN MARCOS - PODS Enterprises Inc. (portable on-demand storage) will shutter four of its Central Texas facilities and consolidate distribution in San Marcos, company officials say.

The Florida-based company will build a 56,000-sf warehouse and distribution facility off Clovis Barker Dr. on a tract fronting a partially completed extension of Leah Ave., said Glenn Couch, a vice president at Uniprop, a real estate investment company.

PODS will invest $9.5 million, including the undisclosed cost of acquiring about 18 acres, to establish its new San Marcos facility. The city’s access to I-35 and SH 130 made San Marcos an attractive regional home base for PODS Enterprises.

The city’s access to Interstate 35 and Texas 130 made San Marcos an attractive regional home base for PODS Enterprises.

“When it came time to consolidate our operations into one central location for our Austin and San Antonio markets, the San Marcos region was an obvious choice,” Couch said.

The new facility will create 15 warehouse jobs, said Greater San Marcos Partnership President Adriana Cruz.

Founded in 1998 by former firefighter Peter Warhurst, PODS maintains an inventory of more than 140,000 of its portable shipping containers which more than 100 franchisees deliver to customers’ doors in 46 U.S. states, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom.
