Shale boom drives SEC Energy's $25M expansionShale boom drives SEC Energy's $25M expansionhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=62332013-09-25T12:38:00Z2013-09-25T00:00:00Z

HOUSTON - SEC Energy Products & Services is putting the finishing touches on its 212,000-sf headquarters expansion at 9523 Fairbanks N. Houston Rd. in northwest Houston.

The $25 million addition is comprised of five buildings and more than doubles the size of the campus to 46 acres.

SEC’s expansion process began in 2012 when the company began converting close to 30 acres of swampland that it originally acquired a few years earlier into usable land on which it could expand its bordering 16-acre campus.

The company has completed a new fabrication facility, an assembly facility and a facility in which it can test and repair machinery. SEC plans to complete construction on a new warehouse soon. By the end of October, it plans to complete a two-story office building.

The impetus behind SEC’s massive expansion is the shale boom. The company wants to increase its local headcount from its current number of about 250 to about 350 in the next year and a half.

“We’ve had a six-month backlog for the last two to three years,” said Frank Northrup, SEC’s director of marketing. “We’ve been turning away work because we can’t get it done in the time frame the customer wants.”
