HOUSTON - Toshiba International Corporation (TIC) completed an expansion of its control plant located in northwest Houston. The 107,000-sf expansion provides manufacturing and office space. Production will start by fall 2013.

The approximately $20 million capital investment will meet the need to double the capacity of its medium voltage adjustable speed drive product line, which has seen substantial growth over the last two years.

The expansion will allow TIC to reduce lead times to better serve its customers in key markets including Oil & Gas and Mining.

The expansion will bring an additional 100 jobs, adding to the large employee growth TIC has had in the last two years. The 55-acre Houston facility has undergone three expansions in the last five years, as TIC continues to build its North American infrastructure.

“TIC has grown to over 1,500 people at the Houston facility over the past few years,” said Mike Ayers, Senior VP & GM, TIC’s Industrial Division. “This expansion will allow us to continue to grow in people and new products in the future.”
