Endress+Hauser has invested 34 million U.S. dollars in a modern campus in Pearland, Texas in the Houston metropolitan area. The 112,000-square-meter campus includes a large new training center, office space for 125 employees, a calibration lab and a repair facility. The new campus reinforces the Group’s presence in the Gulf Coast region of the USA. The building is located in Pearland, Texas in the heart of the economically-strong Gulf of Mexico region. "This expansion is a reflection of our strong roots in the USA. It also illustrates our close proximity to customers and helps us to serve them even better in the future", said Matthias Altendorf, CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group during the dedication ceremony on 26 October 2021.
The new campus offers the largest process training unit in the USA with 200 Endress+Hauser instruments and seven tanks as well as a laboratory for measurement technology and process analytics. Local customers and partners can take advantage of tailored training courses to learn how to utilize modern measurement and automation technologies. The campus is also equipped for the accredited calibration of flow, temperature and pressure measurement instruments, which can be carried out in the Endress+Hauser lab or on-site at the customer location with a mobile calibration system. A service and repair shop rounds out the campus offering.
In planning the campus, Endress+Hauser placed a high value on sustainability. The building is the fifth Endress+Hauser facility in the U.S. certified for environmental construction in accordance with the LEED standard (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). In addition, the interior and exterior relies on regional materials to reflect the Texan architecture. The campus offers space for 125 employees. Apart from Endress+Hauser teams, the new building also houses the gas analysis business area and lab specialists from the Analytik Jena subsidiary, as well as the Vector Controls & Automation Group, a regional sales and service partner.
