RASA Floors opens distribution center in Marshall

After searching for a permanent location for its East Texas Distribution Center for several months, RASA Floors, a warehouse distributor of flooring products, announced today it would open its 11th permanent location at Marshall Gateway Park.

 

“It has been a true joy and pleasure in working with Donna Maisel, MEDCO Board and Staff and city representatives,” CEO and Founder of Rasa Floors Michael Rasa said. “They have been highly responsive, professional and gone above and beyond any expectations.”

 

Rasa said because of this as well as easy access to I-20 and U.S. Hwy 59 (Future I-69) had a major impact on the decision to locate in Marshall. For this reason we chose Marshall for our facility.”

 

RASA Floors has been in business for 24 years, supplying flooring materials and installation to multifamily housing developments throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas. They have a value–centered culture that extends from the leadership to front line representatives while focusing on real relationships and service. RASA Floors has an extensive product line designed to suit any décor and budget.

RASA will construct a new warehouse on Gateway Drive in the Gateway Business Park. The company is in the process of acquiring approximately 2.7 acres for the warehouse. Over 425 people are employed by RASA and the new local distribution facility will employ twenty to twenty-six people.

“Michael Rasa and his team at RASA Floors have demonstrated their commitment and dedication to their profession as well as to the Marshall approved new location. It has been a real pleasure to negotiate an agreement that is mutually beneficial to both parties” stated Donna Maisel, CEcD, Executive Director of Marshall EDC. “They are faith based company who exhibits a passion to grow their company and its employees with integrity to extend extraordinary service to their customers.”

 

The Marshall Economic Development Corporation approved an incentive of approximately 2.7 acres as the site for the new distribution center on July 25th known as Project Access. Marshall City Commission approved the project on August 9th. MEDCO Chairman Jerry Benson stated, “MEDCO is appreciative of the working relationship with the City of Marshall Commissioners and staff on this project. The City is a great partner in economic development and city services.”
