​TOMBALL - Two Greater Houston-area companies are planning to relocate to Tomball in 2016 and bring more than $2 million in economic benefits to the city over the next five years.

Tomball City Council approved the allocation of $111,000 to Rock Materials and $72,000 to White Horse Technology LLC in economic development incentives from the Tomball Economic Development Corporation. 

The companies plan to use the economic incentive funding to assist in the creation and retention of primary jobs.

Rock Materials, which provides natural stone and masonry materials for home builders and individuals, plans to relocate in August from Spring Cypress Rd. to a 6.7-acre tract on the south end of Theis Lane, Vice President Ron Proctor said. 

The company plans to double its space with the relocation and expand operations to serve more individual homebuyers in addition to its wholesale materials for home builders.

The company plans to develop an estimated 10,000-sf warehouse and 6,000-sf office building with a total project investment of $3.8 million. Rock Materials will relocate 35 of its employees and create two new positions within the first two years of operation.

White Horse Technology LLC, which offers a patented thermal spray technique to increase longevity for oilfield equipment, plans to relocate from Garrett Rd. in Houston to South Cherry St. in late February or early March, said business development Manager and co-owner Brandon Burgan.

The company will move into a new 10,000-sf section of the existing Devasco International Inc. building in Tomball with a total investment of $2.9 million. 

The company plans to add a new 30,000-sf building for White Horse Technology on the six-acre Devasco property in the next few years.
