image001Miller Lifting Products is pleased to announce the operation of a new distribution facility located in Houston, Texas. The 5,000 square-foot office and high-bay warehouse facility completed staffing and inventory placement in the spring, and is currently making daily shipments. The facility is now stocking Miller’s complete swivel line with capacities up to 300 tons, heavy eye hooks, DIN shank hooks, headache ball assemblies, and tag line insulators, among other items.

According to Marty Kloss, Miller Sales Director, “The new facility is providing a significant service benefit to customers in the Gulf and Western regions by placing needed goods in immediate or closer proximity. As a result, our distributors and end users will have their goods faster and at a lower total purchase cost since shipping costs are reduced or eliminated. We are excited about the service improvement that this new facility is bringing to Miller customers”.

The new facility is strategically located near the Port of Houston and near to many of Miller’s distributors on Houston’s south side, at Loop 610. The facility will also result in reduced shipment time and cost for customers in the US west and central regions since all shipments previously originated at Miller’s plant in Massachusetts. Kloss also highlighted the enhanced ability to support Miller’s growing offshore customer base in the Gulf of Mexico for inspection, refurbishment, and recertification of specialized lifting products.
