HID Global, Irvine, Calif., announced the initiation of a comprehensive, multi-year project to establish a new North American center of operations. The new Genuine HID Operations Center will be located in Austin, Texas. The project will commence with breaking ground on construction of a new 200,000-square-foot facility in December of this year. Once the building is completed, existing manufacturing operations, warehousing, distribution and customer service activities across North America will be consolidated into the Austin facility.
According to HID Global, the new center represents a significant investment in the company’s ongoing advancements in delivery performance, product quality and facility security while minimizing its environmental impact and maximizing the process efficiency of its global operations.
“The robust business climate and positive economic conditions in Austin were strong considerations in our final site selection,” said Denis Hébert, president and chief executive officer of HID Global. “Of equal importance was that the innovative, vibrant culture in the community aligns so well with our company culture and values. The bottom line is that Austin is a great place for us to invest in the future growth of our business.”
