by David Fleschen
Endress+Hauser has invested $34 million in a modern corporate campus near Pearland, Texas, in the greater Houston area. The 112,000-square-foot facility includes a large new training center, office space for 110 employees, a calibration laboratory and a repair shop. The new building strengthens the Group's presence in the Gulf region.
Located in Pearland, Texas, the building is in the heart of the economically strong Gulf of Mexico region. "The expansion reflects our strong roots in the USA. It demonstrates our proximity to our customers and helps us to serve them even better in the future," said Matthias Altendorf, CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group during the inauguration ceremony on October 26, 2021.
Training facility for customer training
The new campus features the largest process training unit in the U.S. with 200 Endress+Hauser instruments and seven tanks, as well as a laboratory for measurement technology and process analytics. Local customers and partners can learn how to use modern measurement and automation technology here in customized training courses.
In addition, the campus is equipped for the accredited calibration of instruments for flow, temperature and pressure measurement. These can be carried out both in the Endress+Hauser laboratory and with a mobile calibration system at the customer's site. A service workshop completes the range of services.
Sustainable construction in regional style
Endress+Hauser placed great emphasis on sustainability when planning the campus. The building is already the fifth by Endress+Hauser in the U.S. to be certified according to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards for environmentally friendly construction. In addition, regional materials were used in the interior and exterior to reflect Texas architecture.
The campus provides space for 110 employees. In addition to Endress+Hauser teams, the new building also houses the gas analysis business unit, the laboratory analysis specialists of subsidiary Analytik Jena, and regional sales and service partner Vector Controls & Automation Group.
