Falcon Structures Opens Shipping Container Manufacturing Plant in Austin, Texas

The Falcon Structures office is headquartered in a container-based structure.

Falcon Structures officially moved its headquarters to a new site just East of Austin, Texas.  The new 51 acre facility, as shown below, will house Falcon’s conex-based offices, a new fabrication/ manufacturing facility, and the majority of its rental & sales inventory.

The site, will facilitate Falcon’s growing operations as well as expansion capability, new product development and testing. On the site, Falcon is building a container-based structure to serve as its headquarters (rendering below).  This 2,500 square foot mobile building will be assembled from eight repurposed 40 foot shipping containers with five on the first floor and three on the second floor.  The interiors will have "clear span" areas that give dimensions greater than the standard 8-foot width of a container, but at the same time will maintain the industrial look and feel of the container. 

Future plans include a demo area for shipping container cabins, showcase for military training solutions, and other new products that "think inside the box".
Falcon’s CEO Stephen Shang is hopeful that the new site will continue the company’s commitment to “spend more time connecting with customers," as he was quoted in Fortune Magazine. He went on to say:“we’d love to give you a tour of our facilities and see what 'inside the box' ideas you have.”

Located at 7717 Gilbert Road, Manor Texas at the intersection of Texas State Highway 130 (SH130) and FM 973.  The facility is less than 8 miles north of Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (approximately 10 minutes by car) making it easily accessible for visitors.  To schedule a visit, please email
