Endress+Hauser officially inaugurated its state-of-the-art Houston Campus in Pearland, TX on October 26, 2021. The company invested $34 million into the new, 112,000-sq-ft facility to strengthen customer support in the Gulf region.

Just south of Houston in Pearland’s lower Kirby district, the campus sits in the heart of the Gulf states, bringing instrumentation, services, and solutions close to customers.

Added Value for Customers

“We are very excited for this investment in the US market,” said Matthias Altendorf, CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group. “The expansion reflects our strong foothold in the US and connection to our customers. It enables us to provide the best service to our customers, strengthen our relationships with strategic partners, and grow our presence in the Gulf region. We are committed to sustainably generating value for this region.”

The new campus is designed with customers in mind and is equipped for training, repair, and calibration services. Endress+Hauser support teams--including inside sales and application engineering teams--provide localized technical expertise for customers. The training services include a state-of-the-art PTU (process training unit) where customers can learn about IIoT capabilities, Bluetooth-enabled devices, and more. With 200 Endress+Hauser devices and seven tanks set up for live training sessions, the Houston PTU is the largest training unit of its kind in the US.

The campus is also equipped to perform accredited instrument calibration across a variety of measuring principles including flow, level, temperature, and pressure. The accredited calibrations can be performed in both the Houston laboratory and at customer sites with a mobile calibration rig.

Designed for a Sustainable Future

The campus was engineered with an emphasis on both sustainability and Regional Texas Architecture. The building is a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) “Silver” project as stipulated by the U.S. Green Building Council. This provided a framework for green building design, operation, and performance that reflects the company’s value of sustainability.

To reflect the Regional Texas Architecture, the designers emphasized responsiveness to the local climate, use of regionally authentic interior and exterior materials, and attention to scale.

An Integrated Approach

The campus houses the Global Marketing and Applications group for SpectraSensors Gas Analysis business and Analytik Jena’s product lines for laboratory instrumentation. The facility contains office space for 125 employees, including Endress+Hauser’s sales and service provider, Vector Controls & Automation Group.
