Beckhoff Opens Houston Office with Emphasis on Process Industry Solutions


July 13, 2021

New office increases sales, support and training resources for high-tech customers, particularly in oil and gas and petrochemicals

Beckhoff Automation recently opened a Process Industry Technical Center in Houston, Texas, to solidify its presence in the process industry and better serve high-tech customers. Because Houston is the major center for the oil and gas as well as the petrochemical markets, the local Beckhoff staff will include sales and application engineering, training and management personnel focused on the process industry. This move will bolster service to the company’s growing customer base in the region.

The Beckhoff Houston office provides roughly 8,700 square feet of floor space, including a state-of-the-art automation showroom, with technologies geared toward oil and gas production, refining and delivery, as well as alternative energy solutions. However, the increased support in terms of sales, engineering, training and seminars will benefit Beckhoff customers in all industries, including metalworking, biomedical, aerospace, packaging and intralogistics, among others. Located on the city’s west side inside the Town Centre One building, the office is conveniently situated for travel to several airports, the city’s vibrant downtown and industrial hubs in the area.

Increasing demand for innovative automation technologies

“Our new Houston office helps Beckhoff continue to meet the increasing demand for innovative automation technologies. This is especially important for companies in the process industries looking for new ways to boost competitiveness,” said Jesse Hill, Process Industry Manager for Beckhoff Automation LLC. “Along with a growing portfolio of explosion proof CPX multi-touch Control Panels and intrinsically safe ELX EtherCAT I/O options, Beckhoff enables fast, intuitive and secure communication from Zone 0 all the way to the cloud. As a member of the Open Process Automation™ Forum (OPAF) and The Water Council, we will continue to deliver market-leading solutions that answer the industry’s toughest challenges.”

Beckhoff is opening new U.S. facilities in 2021

In addition to the expansion in Houston, Beckhoff is opening new U.S. facilities in 2021 in or near Denver, Milwaukee and Orlando. Along with its U.S. headquarters in the Minneapolis area, Beckhoff maintains numerous regional offices in key metropolitan areas across North America. Headquartered in Cambridge, Ontario, Beckhoff Canada maintains regional offices in Montreal, Quebec, and Vancouver, British Columbia. Beckhoff Mexico was established in 2019 in Mexico City.
