Putzmeister America, Inc. has announced the opening of its Houston, Texas location, a 41,400-square foot facility.
The operations based here include the mounting center for concrete transit mixers, service center for concrete transit mixers, and Pro-tech Pre-owned Service Center for concrete pumps and Telebelts.
The location was selected due to its close proximity to the new manufacturing center in Monterrey, Mexico. Additionally, it will give Putzmeister a second mounting center for mixers in the United States, with Sturtevant, Wis. being home to the other center. The location will provide the concrete transit mixer and concrete pump customers in Texas and neighboring states with more convenient access to service parts and service personnel.
“This location will dramatically increase our capacity to deliver concrete transit mixers to our customers,” said Tom McKernan, Putmeister’s director of sales and customer service for concrete transit mixers. “It is our goal to offer Putzmeister’s highly regarded service to our customers, regardless of their geographical location. The Houston facility helps us to achieve that goal.”
The new facility will start with 12 employees, but is anticipated to grow to 45 by the end of 2015. The Houston facility is located at 121 Genadena St., Houston, Texas 77034-3907. Call (262) 886-3200 with any inquiries.
