Expanding its reach in the shelter market, Sabre Industries, Inc. announced today the development of a joint venture with Module X Solutions. Having recently created an alliance with MB Industries and MBI Global, Module X Solutions is a new shelter provider located in Shreveport, Louisiana. MBI and MBI Global have a long standing reputation in the industry for manufacturing modular protective building systems. A global supplier, they service domestic as well as international markets across the world including those located in Australia, Africa, Canada, Europe, and Asia.
This joint venture brings Sabre Building Systems’, located in Bossier City, Louisiana, total production space to more than 1.14 million square feet with an additional 50 acres of staging area. The additional capacity will be used to increase their product line to better serve the marketplace. In addition, Module X Solutions offers Sabre Building Systems by CellXion an opportunity to further expand their global presence.
Established in 1996 and acquired by Sabre Industries in 2007, Sabre Building Systems by CellXion, formerly CellXion LLC, designs and manufactures a vast selection of equipment shelters and building systems for a variety of industries including telecommunications, oil and gas, utility and renewable energy. “This new joint venture provides Sabre and Module X Solutions with the capacity needed to better serve our customers,” stated Peter J. Sandore, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sabre Industries, Inc. “Together we will be able to offer an expanded product line and venture into new markets.” Sandore also noted that the close proximity of the manufacturing plants allows the companies to more efficiently utilize manufacturing and engineering capabilities unique to each of the joint venture partners while directing the focus of the total workforce on the requirements of the customer base. Customers that require an immediate increase in production on a tight schedule will benefit from the full production and engineering support of the combined companies. The joint venture also provides redundant facilities to each company as part of their respective Disaster Recovery Plans.
Module X Solutions’ President and CEO, Steve Schoonover, was one of the original founders and former President and CEO of Fibrebond Corporation and CellXion, LLC, the two leading producers of lightweight and concrete shelters for the telecommunications and construction industries. Schoonover also pioneered the integration and testing of radio equipment in shelters prior to shipment to customer sites. Commenting on the importance of the recent announcement by Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, Schoonover indicated that the state had approved an incentive package for Module X Solutions totaling $17.5 million. The package includes a $1.8 million performance-based grant and a $1.8 million Economic Development Award Program grant. Along with utilizing the state’s Quality Jobs and Industrial Tax Exemption programs, Module X Solutions will receive the comprehensive solutions of LED FastStart, the nation’s No. 1-ranked state workforce training program. “These incentives will enhance our ability to support Sabre Industries’ product line and serve their growing customer base by providing them with increased access to government and military projects around the world,” commented Steve Schoonover.
Module X Solutions is a cleared facility for the United States Government and currently producing embassies for the U.S. Department of State. It was recently awarded a contract to procure Hardened Alternative Trailer Systems (HATS) for delivery to Baghdad, Iraq. With employee representation in Washington, D.C., Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Lafayette, Louisiana, as well as associated production capabilities in the UK, Turkey, and China, Module X Solutions is a significant addition to Sabre’s extensive footprint. “No one else in the industry has the capability or the capacity to produce the products that this joint venture brings to our combined worldwide marketplace,” Schoonover concluded.
