About this event

In 1998, Jeff Lange, a realtor with experience in land sales, development, construction and commercial sales, founded ABox4U. Originally, the company leased portable storage units to construction sites and other industrial worksites. The units were built from shipping containers that were restored and painted bright red, like the company’s logo. In 2005, after a catastrophic refinery explosion in Texas City, Texas killed 15 workers, Jeff saw a need and the company changed its focus and began working to develop the industry’s first blast-resistant buildings (BRB). Over time, Jeff’s company grew and came to be known as the leading authority on blast-resistant buildings in the oil and gas industry. In 2014, the company changed its name to RedGuard, reflecting its focus on safety and drawing attention to the red boxes that the company was known for.

Through his many forays into business and his entrepreneurial spirit, Jeff understands the importance of good teamwork and the value of surrounding himself with a group of highly trained professionals dedicated to meeting each customer’s unique needs. He has built a strong leadership team to oversee the day-to-day operations of RedGuard and today he remains a managing partner in RedGuard, as well as several other divisions of his LANGE company.

Away from work, Jeff and his wife, Patti, enjoy spending time with their children and grandchildren, viewing the wildlife that frequently visit the creek behind their country home and watching the activity on the family farm.
