HOUSTON-A San Leandro, CA-based manufacturer has inked a seven-year lease for 32,500 sf of industrial space at 7220 Nelms St. in Houston’s far south submarket.

Agribag Inc., which makes mesh and woven bags for agricultural use, will move into the 84,000-sf building in July, Mark Lehman with the Houston office of Grubb & Ellis Co. tells GlobeSt.com. With the first Houston location now in place, the plan is to open a manufacturing warehouse in Tijuana, Mexico, he says.

Lehman represented Agribag. Grubb & Ellis’ John Nicholson, also in Houston, brokered on behalf of the building owner, John Madden, a Houston investor who acquired the 31-year-old building in June 2002.

Manufacturing space in Houston is bringing an average of 30 cents per sf, according to a first-quarter industrial report by O’Connor & Associates, a locally based research firm.
