The company officially broke ground on 7 March 2019 at its new site in Pearland’s lower Kirby District, just outside of Houston, Texas, US. Construction is due for completion by the end of next year.
Matthias Altendorf, CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group, said: “We continue to make investments that enable growth and further expansion in the US market.
“The campus investment will strengthen cooperation and relationships with our sales representatives, strategic partnerships and our customers. We are excited to continue expanding our presence and business in the Gulf region and look forward to growth in Pearland.”
According to the statement, the new campus will offer areas for calibration, repair and training, which will include a new state-of-the-art process training unit (PTU). The facility will house teams to support the company’s products, solutions and services for process automation, SpectraSensors’ gas analysis systems for the US and international customers, and Analytik Jena’s product lines for laboratory instrumentation. The campus will also feature a building and warehouse location for Endress+Hauser’s partner for sales and service in the Gulf region, Vector Controls and Automation Group. The campus will accommodate around 110 employees.
Pat Irwin, Endress+Hauser’s Area Vice President for the Gulf Coast region and Jared Boudreaux, Vector Controls’ President, said: “As we have grown our local market presence in this critical Houston area, this investment further strengthens our position and reaffirms our growth strategies for years to come.”
