GE O&G to Consolidate Americas Operations in Houston
GE Oil & Gas, a leading supplier of equipment and services for the global oil and gas industry, will establish its Americas regional headquarters at a new 13.5-acre site at Westway Park II, now under construction at the intersection of West Beltway 8 and Clay Road in Houston, Texas. The new location will also be the new business headquarters for VetcoGray and PII Pipeline Solutions.
“Houston is a key center for the global oil and gas industry and this move reflects the exponential growth that our business continues to experience in the Americas region,” said Claudi Santiago, CEO and President of GE Oil & Gas.
Globally the business employs over 12 000 people and in 2007 generated $7.7 billion in orders providing up, mid and downstream products, systems and services for customers in over 70 countries worldwide.
The new Houston facility will bring together close to 500 employees from several offices across the city including all GE Oil & Gas employees currently based at the West Loop and Briarpark offices. They will be joined by a number of people from VetcoGray’s North Houston Rosslyn Road facility. The move is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2009.
