San Antonio, Texas — February 2016

FEBRUARY 8, 2016, SAN ANTONIO, TX — For one giant government defense contractor, a move of sensitive equipment needed to be executed perfectly and on time, but for MEI Rigging & Crating, it was a regular Tuesday.

MEI Rigging & Crating in San Antonio moved hundreds of pieces of sensitive equipment and tooling over a three-week span for a large government defense contractor. “The opportunity to work with such a large and prestigious company was a reward in itself,” says Todd Hovis, MEI Rigging & Crating Regional Manager, “but the real reward was being able to well exceed their expectations. ”The project stood out, of course, given whom MEI was working with.

As large as it was, it was one of the more straightforward relocations that MEI has done. Many large factory relocations require tool de-installation, and staging, packing, crating, loading and transport, with far more complex job sites and scheduling. This project, although large, was logistically simple. MEI’s project managers are experts at complex relocation challenges.
