HSi operations to relocate to Atlas Copco competence center

Atlas Copco has announced plans to fully integrate the Houston Service Industries (HSi) operations and brand into Atlas Copco by early 2015. As part of the integration process, in December of this year HSi operations will relocate from the facility at 7901 Hansen Road, Houston, to the Atlas Copco facility at 15045 Lee Road, Houston.

 “We remain fully committed to the products and industries served by HSi and the relocation and brand changes are the next steps in the integration plan with Atlas Copco,” said Sebastien Bidault, General Manager, Houston Service Industries. “This will allow us to further expand our production capacity, safeguard quality and grow our testing and research and development capabilities. Bringing this all together under one roof will benefit both our customers and our employees”

Both the HSi and Atlas Copco brands have been used since the acquisition of HSi in 2012. Many HSi products have been converted to the Atlas Copco brand already and all HSi product service is conducted by Atlas Copco. Beginning in early 2015, all HSi products will be delivered with Atlas Copco branding. The brand transition has been communicated to customers and displayed publically at WEFTEC – the Water Environment Federation’s Annual Technical Exhibition and Conference. Throughout the transition all customer contacts and phone numbers will remain unchanged.

The Atlas Copco facility on Lee Road is a 96,000 square-foot competency center for engineered products. This custom-built competency center opened in 2012 and it features state-of-the-art production and testing facilities. The assembly of all HSi products will be incorporated into this facility and new custom build assembly and test bays will be installed to ensure the highest quality standards.

The Lee Road and Hansen Road locations are approximately 25 miles apart. A majority of the 75 employees that work at the Hansen Road site will transition directly to the Lee Road facility. Due to synergies created as a result of the move, a small percentage of employees will be offered an opportunity to apply for other positions within the Atlas Copco Group. Atlas Copco owns the Hansen Road site and plans are ongoing for how to utilize this space in the future.
