Process automation company Endress+Hauser announced that it is investing $38.5 million (€34.15 million) into a new 112,000 square-foot Gulf Coast Regional Center Campus.
The company broke ground at its new site in Pearland’s lower Kirby District, just outside of the Houston area.
“We continue to make investments that enable growth and further expansion in the US market,” said Matthias Altendorf, CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group.
“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 release, the new campus will offer areas for calibration, repair and training, which will include a brand new state-of-the-art PTU (Process Training Unit).
The facility will also house teams to support Endress+Hauser’s products, solutions and services for process automation; SpectraSensors’ gas analysis systems for the US and international markets; and Analytik Jena’s product lines for laboratory instrumentation.
It will house approximately 110 employees and completion of the project is set for 2020.
