PEARLAND - Site work continues on the 26-acre site near Beltway 8 and SH 288 that is the future home of MHI Compressor Manufacturing LLC. When completed, the facility will consist of a 40,000-sf office complex and a 90,000-sf packing building.

This will be the first American facility for Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Compressor International Corp., a Japanese firm. The company plans to have the plant fully operational in early 2015.

It will add more than 35 jobs and involve an investment of more than $40 million, said Matt Buchanan, president of the Pearland Economic Development Corp.

The plant will provide manufacturing, packaging, repair maintenance and training services for its growing regional and national customer base of petrochemical plants.

The company's ultimate goal is for the Pearland plant to become a full-scale production and testing center on par with its facilities in Japan.
