An Ecolab company is to build its headquarters in Texas with completion expected by 2015.
The 133,000-square-foot facility, in Sugar Land, will provide modern workspaces and training facilities for 1,000 Nalco Champion employees.
The project will include renovation of Nalco Champion's existing 45,000-square-foot Sugar Land office building to expand research, development and engineering (RD&E) lab facilities.
Employees working at Nalco Champion sites in Houston and Fresno, Texas, will relocate to the headquarters building.
"This project will help us bring together our people as one team, creating a critical mass of industry knowledge and a research and development powerhouse to better serve our customers," said Steve Taylor, Ecolab executive vice president and president, Nalco Champion.
