Grainger Building 1.2M SF Hockley Distribution Center

The Houston Texas Distribution Center will be constructed on a 108-acre site in unincorporated Harris County northwest of Houston at Roberts Road and U.S. Route 290. Hines is developing the property, which is intended for next-day orders.

Grainger expects to employ about 400 people at the facility within a year of opening.

The groundbreaking is set for this spring, and the company anticipates a 2026 opening. Once the distribution center is completed, it will house over 250,000 industrial supplies. This includes hand and power tools, heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment, fluid power solutions, lighting, power transmission equipment and motors.

Currently, the company operates more than 45 locations in Texas.

Connect Industrial Midwest 2024 will take place on March 5, 2024, at Joe’s Live in Rosemont, Illinois. Click here for more information and to register.
