Hewlett Packard Enterprise Relocates Global Headquarters to Spring, Texas
According to Governor Greg Abbott’s Office, the headquarters will be located in a new state-of-the-art campus that will open in early 2022, building upon the company's established presence in the state of Texas. The company's headquarters relocation to the Houston area holds the potential to add additional jobs to its already robust presence in Texas in the coming years.
“As we look to the future, our business needs, opportunities for cost savings, and team members’ preferences about the future of work, we are excited to relocate HPE’s headquarters to the Houston region,” said Antonio Neri, CEO of HPE. “Houston is an attractive market to recruit and retain future diverse talent and where we are currently constructing a state-of-the-art new campus. We look forward to continuing to expand our strong presence in the market.”
HPE already has a significant presence across Texas, with locations in Austin, Plano, and Houston, the latter of which is home to more than 2,600 employees and is the company’s largest employment hub, state officials noted. HPE currently operates major product development, services, manufacturing, and lab facilities in Houston and Austin.
"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," said Governor Abbott.
"HPE’s headquarters relocation is a signature moment for Houston, accelerating the momentum that has been building for the last few years as we position Houston as a leading digital tech hub,” said Bob Harvey, president and CEO of the Greater Houston Partnership, the economic development organization serving the Greater Houston area. “Houston has long been a hub for global innovation and offers leading tech companies a deep bench of digital and corporate talent to drive success. We are excited HPE leadership recognized this, and look forward to welcoming the headquarters team to Houston."
