Entrust Inc., a premier benefit management and consulting firm, is preparing to bring its corporate headquarters to the Fort Bend County section of the Katy area. The Company recently conducted a groundbreaking at its new site In Katy.
Founded in 1975, Entrust handles all areas of benefit management, including human resources consulting, benefit planning and administration management. Entrust is moving into a 34,000-sq.ft., two-story office building which is being constructed at Westpark Tollway and Grand Parkway 99.
It may not be where you think: Katy hasn’t had a new distribution center since 2010, but it’s hoping to change that. Thanks to Medline Industries, which recently bought 56 acres in West Ten Business Park, there are now incentives in place for the sector.
The deteriorating condition of the pool at the City of Katy Dog Park took center stage at Monday’s regular meeting of the Katy City Council, with one resident telling council members it “was almost like a sewage treatment plant” and another asking the city to start all over and rebuild it properly.
Eastgroup Properties is under construction on a 30,000 sq. ft. build-to-suit headquarters facility for Welltec, Americas at Merchants Way and Ravello Drive. EDC President Lance LaCour joined Welltec America's Senior Vice President Carl Strubberg and Kevin Sager recently for the groundbreaking at the site. At the EDC meeting, Strubberg provided an overview of Welltec, which is headquartered in Denmark. The Company produced the patented Well Tractor System and has 52 offices and service facilities with 950 employees around the world.
Another great economic development project was announced at the Katy Area EDC meeting this week. Eastgroup Properties, with their leasing partner InSite Realty, announced Ten West Crossing, a new 40 acre development located on Merchants Way near I-10 and Mason Road. Kevin Sager, a Katy resident and Vice President of Eastgroup Properties, noted that the Company purchased the tract earlier in 2012 and will soon be constructing two buildings, a 45,000 SF flex facility and 67,000 SF light industrial building. These first two buildings are the first of seven that are planned for a total of 524,000 SF at Ten West Crossing. Sager noted that the buildings will be constructed of the highest quality with high end architectural finishes and glass.
