Endress+Hauser has invested US$34 million in a modern campus in Pearland, Texas, US.
The 112 000 m2 campus includes a large new training centre, office space for 125 employees, a calibration laboratory and a repair facility.
“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.
The new campus offers the largest process training unit in the US 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 utilise 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 laboratory 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 US 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.
Apart from Endress+Hauser teams, the new building also houses the gas analysis business area and laboratory specialists from the Analytik Jena subsidiary, as well as the Vector Controls & Automation Group, a regional sales and service partner.
