Okla. Sooner Container adding 45,000 SF in Conroe Okla. Sooner Container adding 45,000 SF in Conroe https://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=24372014-11-18T10:50:00Z2014-11-18T00:00:00Z

CONROE - Two years after building a 65,000-sf facility, Sooner Container is expanding its local footprint at Conroe Park North, a 1,045-acre industrial park, by 45,000 sf.

Conroe City Council approved a request from General Manager Allan Locke to amend his original incentive agreement for the expansion. The amended $107,098 over seven years agreement is effective in 2016.

Sooner Container, located at 3375 Pollok Dr., was built in 2011. The $2.5 million expansion would add warehouse space and four new employees.

“My anticipation was that it would last five years; it lasted two,” Locke said, adding the company grew 49 percent last year.

Founded in 1992, the company, according to its official website, distributes industrial shipping containers.

Locke said while the expansion is needed, he expects that in the next three to four years he probably would have to build out the company’s remaining four acres to keep up with demand.
