Industrial instrumentation and process automation company Endress+Hauser is investing $36 million in a new regional center on the Gulf Coast of the USA.
The company officially broke ground on earlier this month at its new site in Pearland’s lower Kirby District near Houston, Texas. Completion is projected by the end of 2020.
The new 10,000-square-meter Endress+Hauser campus will offer areas for calibration, repair and training, which will include a process training unit.
The facility will house teams to support Endress+Hauser’s products, solutions and services for process automation, SpectraSensors’ gas analysis systems and Analytik Jena’s product lines for laboratory instrumentation.
The campus will include a building and warehouse location for Endress+Hauser’s partner for Sales and Service in the Gulf Region, Vector Controls and Automation Group.
The new campus will house approximately 110 employees.
Matthias Altendorf, CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group, says: “We continue to make investments that enable growth and further expansion in the US market.”
Pat Irwin, Endress+Hauser’s area vice president for the Gulf Coast, and Jared Boudreaux, Vector Controls’ president, issued a joint statement, saying: “As we have grown our local market presence in the Houston area, this investment further strengthens our position and reaffirms our growth strategies for years to come.”
