KATY - Weatherford, an oil and gas services company, is now operating from its newest 354,000-sf manufacturing and office facility located on 174 acres in Waller County, off Hwy. 90.

So far, Weatherford has brought on 135 employees. The company expects to hire 335 more by the end of 2015.

The company provides artificial lift technology and services, which help oil and gas companies maximize the profit and productivity of their extraction operations.

The Katy location, in addition to manufacturing products and technology, will also be an education center. The facility is equipped to provide large group training for Weatherford employees from across the world, as well as energy industry employees from other companies.

The strong workforce living in the area will allow the facility to increase its output from 120 rod pumping units per month to 600 units, Ernest Dunn, vice president of production systems said.
