Plano, TX – Hilti recently completed the move of its corporate headquarters from Tulsa, OK to Plano, TX, and the relocation of its Western Hemisphere Product Development and Tool Service Center to nearby Irving. The process involved the transfer of approximately 250 employees. Grand Opening ceremonies for both facilities were held on June 18, with events in Irving happening in the morning and in Plano later that day.
The ceremony at the Hilti Western Hemisphere Product Development and Tool Service Center Facility included prepared remarks from Gerald Farris, Mayor Pro Tem of Irving; Christoph Loos, Hilti Group Chief Executive Officer; Stefan Nöken, Member of the Executive Board; and Cary Evert, Hilti North America President and CEO.
The 65,000 sq. ft. Irving facility houses the company's Product Development and Testing Lab and the second-largest Hilti Tool Service Center in North America. At the service center, certified technicians perform tool repairs and maintenance, laser calibrations and battery checks. In the lab, engineers, designers and product specialists develop, test and provide customer support for fire protection, anchoring and direct fastening products and applications.
“This new facility represents the next step in growing our Hilti North America presence over the next decade,” said Cary Evert, Hilti North America President and CEO. “The further strengthening of our service network and product development capabilities ensures that Hilti will continue to provide innovative solutions to our customers that drive productivity on the jobsite.”
In Plano, Hilti commemorated the opening of its new headquarters by hosting Lori McMahon, Deputy Chief of Staff for Congressman Sam Johnson, Lissa Smith, Mayor Pro Tem of Plano, and Dr. Christoph Loos, Hilti Group Chief Executive Officer. Other Hilti executives were also in attendance, as were customers and team members.
The move from Tulsa to Plano places the company closer to the dynamic construction market in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and a broad base of customers in the company’s core construction and civil energy segments.
“We selected Plano for several reasons, including the vibrant growth of the city and the proximity to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex,” said Cary Evert. “Our next step was to identify the perfect office space to house our workplace of the future.”
The new headquarters occupies two floors of the Legacy Tower office building at 7250 Dallas Parkway. The office space places special emphasis on Hilti's people and innovative products through unique architectural and design elements.
The 10th floor highlights elements of team members working together in a collaborative environment. A special feature on that floor is the personalization wall, created to recognize team members who made the move to Plano to be part of the Hilti North America Corporate Headquarters team. Floor 11 showcases Hilti products. Awards are on display, as are other exhibits and elements that highlight the innovation Hilti is committed to creating.
