HOUSTON-A New Jersey company specializing in trade show build-outs will open doors on a Houston division, picking June 1 as the start-up date to a 33,560-sf location on the city’s eastern side.

AEX Convention Services Inc. signed a 5.5-year lease for a freestanding building at 5544 Armour Dr. The firm specializes in carpeting and walls for trade show floors.

Aaron Ace Schlameus in Grubb & Ellis Co.’s Houston office tells GlobeSt.com that the building came to market about 11 months ago, two months before King Warehousing vacated. He and Doyle Toups, also with Grubb & Ellis, represented the owner, Suburban Leases, which was seeking 22 cents per sf gross. Reggie Beavan III and Trace Elrod, both with Jackson & Cooksey in Houston, brokered for the tenant.

Schlaemus says the tenant will use about 5,000 sf for office and store materials in the balance. The location also includes about 18,000 sf for yard storage.
