Falcon is Famous!

Falcon Structures modifies its shipping containers in house.

It's been a busy month here at Falcon headquarters, and with construction on the new Falcon Nest almost completed we've gotten quite a bit of attention from the press and a curious public! Our "big break" came in mid-May, when Falcon Containers was featured on front page of the print edition of the esteemed Austin Business Journal. ABJ Reporter Cody Lyon paid a visit to our manufacturing facility for a tour and an interview with CEO Stephen Shang, and the resulting article really stirred up some attention.

The ABJ must have really liked what they saw, because that very evening its editor Colin Pope appeared in a video clip on the Austin YNN (Your News Now) website to speak about us some more. The design of our new Falcon Nest is a hot topic in the clip, with praises for its sustainable aspects and "Austin-style" qualities being sung all around.

After receiving attention from print- and web-based press sources, what was left to be explored? Radio, of course! On May 16th, Nathan Bernier of KUT's Morning Edition invited our Austin Business Journal reporter (and new friend; thanks Cody!) to speak with him about Falcon and concept of shipping container buildings. In keeping with Austin's love for all things entertainment-related, there seems to be the most excitment where new bars and restaurants built with them are involved.

With all of this media attention we have had quite a few curious people arrange to come out to Area 51 seeking tours and more information. If you are interested in a tour or just have a few questions for us, email us at
