HOUSTON - Powell Industries Inc. has opened its new $45 million manufacturing and office space located at 7232 Airport Blvd. in southeast Houston. The facility has 196,000 sf of manufacturing space and 75,000 sf of office space.

Powell’s new facility sits on 50 acres, but 25 acres remain open to allow for expansion. About 500 existing Powell employees will work at the facility, which has capacity for about 1,000 workers.

In 2012, the company made a significant investment in personnel by hiring between 200 and 250 new employees, and many of the employees were slotted for positions in Houston.

Houston-based Powell, which designs and manufactures custom systems that control and distribute power, generates the majority of its business from oil and gas operations.
