  • Building material and gardening equipment sales soared to over $43 billion in May 2020.
  • Online building supply companies, who ship directly to the client, are heating up right now— especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • In the first quarter of 2020, e-commerce sales jumped to $123.7 billion. According to Pro Sales Magazine, the jump in online sales for hardware and building suppliers is even more dramatic.

In this radically changing market, both retail and wholesale building supply companies may now need more floor space, more locations, or more online fulfilment centers and warehouses to meet their demands.

RHINO metal buildings are the answer for fast and economical expansion.  Our steel prefab commercial buildings and warehouses deliver three key advantages:

#1: The Price of Metal Commercial Buildings and Warehouses

Extreme efficiency keeps steel prefab commercial buildings towing the builder’s bottom line.  RHINO steel structures are:

  • Produced with exceptionally high recycled content, keeping material costs low
  • Designed and engineered to create the strongest possible building with the least amount of steel, promising the most bang-for-the-builder’s-buck
  • Fast and simple to erect, lowering building costs by lopping 33% off construction time
  • Economical to operate; RHINO’s Pro-Value Insulation System reduces heating and cooling costs by 50%
  • Fire-resistant, earning sizable insurance discounts
  • Easy to maintain, avoiding the hassle and expense of constant repainting and repairs
  • Durable, holding their beauty and value decade after decade

#2: The Expansive Space of Steel Buildings and Warehouses

Every retail and warehouse operator craves wide, open space.

Wholesalers also need plenty of room for adequate inventory.  Busy builders do not have the time or patience to search for the parts they need.  Suppliers’ products and parts must be highly organized and easily accessible, or the builders will go elsewhere.

Pre-engineered metal commercial buildings are all about space.

Since the steel produced today is 30% stronger than days gone by, it spans greater distances than ever before.

For example, RHINO metal buildings span up to 300 feet in width without any interior supports. Our prefab metal warehouses offer widths up to 480 feet with minimal interior columns.

#3: Damage-Resistant Metal Commercial Buildings
