Omaha Engineering and Manufacturing Company REI Necessitates Expansion

OMAHA, Neb. — REI, an Omaha-based engineering and manufacturing company that provides commercial-grade electronic solutions for the global transportation industry, is excited to announce its expansion to 15,000 square feet of new office space.

Located at 11128 John Galt Boulevard in Omaha, the new space will accommodate REI’s expanding sales and marketing teams. To date, REI’s sole Omaha location was its 180,000-square-foot headquarters and production facility at 6534 L Street.

“REI’s success is reliant on innovation, quality and exceptional customer support. For us to exceed the needs of new and existing customers even further, the decision was made to devote more space to engineering and manufacturing at our headquarters. This prompted the need for additional sales and marketing office space,” notes Scott Hays, president of REI. “The new, open and modern workspace is conducive to collaboration between these two teams which will ultimately lead us to be even more responsive to our customers.”

Beyond its expansion to new office space, REI is currently renovating its L Street headquarters. The project is expected to take several months and will impact all corners of the building.

Hays adds, “Expectations of REI products, solutions and services are extremely high. The expansion will ensure that we maintain our competitive edge in everything from innovation to manufacturing to service. Our experienced teams of on-site engineers design solutions that improve efficiencies, create safer environments and boost passenger experiences. REI prides itself on being a complete solutions provider for customers around the world.”

In addition to its Omaha locations, REI operates a 15,000-square-foot, lite manufacturing facility in São Paulo, Brazil. Its staff of 35 supplies electronic solutions to countries throughout Latin America.
