AIV, LP Plans Expanded Operations Center in Houston, Texas

AIV, LP, a Houston-based global wholesale distributor of valves and actuators for the oil and gas, power generation, chemical, petrochemical, refining, pulp and paper and water treatment industries, plans to locate a more than 320,000 square-foot facility at 22806 Northwest Lake Drive near Telge Road and Highway 290 in northwest Houston, Texas.

The 32-acre construction site allows for the future expansion of up to 700,000 square feet. The new facility will consolidate AIV and Gulf Coast Modification's current 130,000 square-foot headquarters at 7140 West Sam Houston Parkway near Highway 290, a separate 28,000 square-foot modification facility focusing on mid-stream clients, and a third 22,000 square-foot building that houses AIV's automation division.

AIV has selected KDW, a Houston-based Design/Build contractor, to custom design and construct their facility. KDW anticipates breaking ground later this year, and the project is scheduled for completion by late 2018.

According to company officials, the new facility will consist of two stories of Class A office space to house the company's sales and administrative personnel, expanded warehouse space for AIV's extensive valve and actuation inventory, and the fabrication facility to accommodate Gulf Coast Modification.

"This new state-of-the-art facility will not only provide a dramatic increase in square footage to house our expansive valve inventory, it allows us to bring all our modification and actuation operations back under one roof. This consolidation will greatly increase efficiency in the interaction between the divisions, and therefore improve our ability to best serve our clients," stated AIV President Trey Cook.
