WICHITA — Wichita-based A Box 4 U is expanding its blast-resistant module business.
Since the mid-1990s, Jeff Lange’s company has sold and leased blast-resistant modules for petroleum refineries and chemical plants.
“We create a safe haven for employees,” says John Potts, who is in sales for the company.
The modules could be an office, a factory or even a restroom.
Now, instead of solely using a third-party fabricator to make the boxes, the company is going to begin doing its own finishing work to help with the process.
“We’re just assisting . . . because we’ve got so much work going,” Potts says.
In addition to the company’s office at 4340 S. West St., A Box 4 U is also now leasing a 20,000-square-foot warehouse at 4225 W. Bounous to do the finishing work.
Ted Branson of Landmark Commercial Real Estate handled the deal.
Potts says it will still rely on another company to do most of the work, but he says it made sense for A Box 4 U to take on some of the work itself.
“We’re growing pretty quickly here.”
