HOUSTON-Invensys Corp. has closed a 12.3-acre buy at Wolff Cos.’ Westway Park in west Houston. The firm’s Americas division, formerly Massachusetts-based Foxboro Co., is fine-tuning plans for its Western Hemisphere headquarters.

The site is located along Equity Drive in Westway Park’s phase II. Michael Caliel, president of Invensys Americas, says “the ease of communication and transportation along the Beltway at Westway Park was a major factor in locating our area headquarters in Westway Park.”

The Simpkins Group, a Houston-based investment builder, will develop the 115,500-sf, two-story office building for Invensys. Veret Architects will design the building. “Invensys chose wisely,” says Don Dennis, Simpkins principal. “Westway Park is right by the Energy Corridor and many high-end residential communities.” The headquarters site, he adds, will deliver a high number of high-tech engineering jobs and serve as a demonstration center for high-profile clients.

Invensys provides software and electronics solutions to the automation and controls industry. The company reported first quarter global sales in excess of $11 billion. Invensys Americas works specifically in general industry process automation and had first quarter sales of $1 billion.

To date, Westway Park has sold 72% of its 150 acres. Cooper Cameron, Seismic Exchange, Time Warner and DeVry Institute also are building in the park.
