HOUSTON - Daikin Industries Ltd. will build a new $417 million campus in the Houston area to expand its Goodman operations in the U.S. — the largest single investment in Goodman's four-decade history.

Construction will start in the coming months, and the new campus, called Comfortplex, is expected to be operational in mid-2016.

The 3 million- to 4 million-sf campus will be on a 90-acre parcel near US 290, three miles west of Texas SH 99.

The new campus will include one of the largest and most technologically advanced HVAC manufacturing facilities in the country.

It will manufacture both ducted and ductless HVAC products, which is a first for Daikin, and the manufacturing operations will consist of Daikin-, Goodman- and Amana-branded residential and commercial heating and cooling systems.

At the campus, the company will consolidate its engineering, logistics, procurement, manufacturing and marketing operations from Texas and Tennessee.

The Japan-based manufacturer of heating, cooling and refrigerant products acquired Houston-based Goodman Global Group Inc., a manufacturer of HVAC products for residential and light commercial use, in 2012.
