The History Of Rigid Global Buildings

The History Of Rigid Global Buildings

Founded in Houston, Texas in 1990, Rigid Global Buildings has grown into one of the leading pre-engineered metal building companies in the industry today. With a solid engineering foundation, Rigid strives in not only simple metal building projects but also complex, detailed projects. It is these detailed projects that have given Rigid the reputation of being able to design and manufacture outside of the standard metal box building including structural steel. We are your Single Source Steel Building Manufacturer!

In 1990 Rigid Structures officially opened as an engineering consulting firm for the metal building industry. Over the course of the next three years, Rigid Structures quickly became the leading engineering firm for metal building manufactures.

In 1993 with the investment capital beginning to accumulate from the consulting business, the owners decided to expand the business with the formation of Rigid Building Systems. Rigid Building Systems was formed to develop the front end of a metal building company. Personnel were hired for building sales, estimating, contracts and detailing. With time, dedication and hard work, Rigid had become known as a company who could consistently out-perform their competition in terms of economics and speedy delivery.

On June 12, 1995 - five years after starting the consulting business - Rigid opened the doors to its brand new manufacturing plant in Houston, Texas - and the rest is history. To this day, Rigid incorporates the best in methods of production, purchasing and service. The result of which gives Rigid’s customers much more value that they could receive anywhere else in the industry.

In 2008 the steel industry faced a significant impact with the price of steel rising at a volatile rate along with the downturn in the economy - Rigid was no exception to these occurrences. In order to secure the stability of the company Rigid needed to broaden its horizons and expand into the international market. In 2011, Rigid Building Systems officially became Rigid Global Buildings. The transition into the global market brought financial stability as well as a means to reach a larger international audience.
