HOUSTON — Hewlett Packard Enterprise will soon call the Houston area home, Gov. Greg Abbott announced on Tuesday. Its global headquarters is relocating from California to Spring.
The headquarters comes here from San Jose and will be located in a new, state-of-the-art Springwoods Village campus set to open in early 2022. Hewlett Packard Enterprise, or HPE, will be the company’s newest presence in Texas. It already has locations in Austin, Plano and Houston. In Houston, the company employs more than 2,600 people.
This new expansion and campus could add hundreds of jobs in the coming years.
"We are excited that Hewlett Packard Enterprise has chosen to call Texas home, and I thank them for expanding their investment in the Lone Star State by relocating their headquarters to the Houston region," said Governor Abbott in a news release. "Hewlett Packard Enterprise joins more than 50 Fortune 500 companies headquartered in the Lone Star State, including 22 in the Houston area alone. That is because Texas offers the best business climate in the nation. Our low taxes, high quality of life, top-notch workforce, and tier one universities create an environment where innovative companies like HPE can flourish. We look forward to a successful partnership with HPE, as together we build a more prosperous future for Texas."
Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner is also welcoming the technology and information giant to the city.
“I have said we are not just running, but we are sprinting to boost our tech and innovation scene. HPE’s announcement is something we should all celebrate. The city’s efforts to bolster Houston’s position as a leading digital tech hub and global headquarters city are paying off,” said Mayor Turner. “I had the opportunity to visit with HPE CEO Antonio Neri a few weeks ago about HPE’s presence in Houston, and am delighted they decided to move their headquarters to the Houston area.”
We'll have more details of the move as they become available.
