Construction is underway at Daikin Industries’ campus in Waller, which will consolidate many of the company’s operations for its Daikin, Goodman and Amana heating and cooling products in Texas and Tennessee.
Company officials from Japan and Houston gathered with community representatives at a groundbreaking last month.
The campus represents a $417 million investment for the Japanese company, which gained a foothold in the U.S. with the purchase of Houston-based Goodman Manufacturing Co. several years ago.
The campus will house engineering, logistics, procurement, manufacturing and marketing operations. It’s being built on 90 acres just north of U.S. 290, about three miles west of the Grand Parkway.
Daikin will employ up to 4,000 people at the campus, which will open in mid 2016. The campus will contain 3 million to 4 million square feet of space.
