Daikin Industries, Ltd., the world's largest manufacturer of heating, cooling and refrigerant products, announced on January 6, 2015 that its board members have approved an expansion plan for its Goodman operations in the United States. Over the next several years, Daikin will be building a new state-of-the art business campus that consolidates the current manufacturing and logistics footprints to a location outside of Houston, TX, in an area near U.S. 290 and approximately three miles west of Texas State Highway 99. The new campus is currently projected to be operational mid-2016. This commitment of approximately $417M represents the largest single investment since the founding of the Goodman organization over thirty years ago. The construction is planned to commence in the coming months.
