JD Fields Leases Industrial Space at Port Houston

Written by Laura Miller

JD Fields & Company Inc. is set to lease new industrial space at Port Houston. Using the property’s multimodal shipping capabilities will allow the steel pipe supplier to further streamline its distribution capabilities.

JD Fields secured the lease of 133,125 square feet of space at the Greens Port Industrial Park from commercial real estate firms NAI James E. Hanson and NAI Partners. The 735-acre industrial park, part of Port Houston, has a total of over three million square feet of warehouse space, storage for 1,600 rail cars across four rail yards, and seven deep water and nine barge berths along the Houston Ship Channel. The property can easily handle ocean vessels, barges, trains, and trucks to allow delivery and shipping of steel in all forms.

JD Fields is a Houston-based steel pipe distributor focused on the energy and civil infrastructure markets. In 2021, the company announced its expansion into steel pipe production through the JDF/HDM Spiralweld Mill. The mill was originally meant to be located on the campus of Steel Dynamics Inc.’s new flatrolled mill in Sinton, Texas. But the company later decided to build the mill in Houston to take advantage of shipping capabilities there. In September 2021, JD Fields further added to its steel portfolio with the $24 million purchase of the steel piling assets of L.B. Foster.
