Merit Medical Systems, Inc. (MMSI) Expands into Pearland, Plans to Hire 220


10/12/2011 9:17:46 AM

Merit Medical Systems Inc. is planning a new research and manufacturing facility in Pearland.

The Utah-based medical device company is planning a 118,000-square-foot facility at 14646 Kirby Drive that will house approximately 220 employees.

Merit conducted a multistate search before selecting Pearland. The city of Pearland and the Pearland Economic Development Corp. worked to recruit Merit in partnership with the Greater Houston Partnership and Harris County.

The facility will be situated in a business park owned by a Betz Cos. partnership, which retains an additional 23 acres of land on the same lot. The partnership coordinated the sale with Boyd Commercial, real estate representative for Merit Medical Systems Inc. Merit will be across the street from a related manufacturer.

“Merit is the second medical manufacturing facility to choose to locate in Pearland, following on the heels of Cardiovascular Systems Inc.,” said Pearland Mayor Tom Reid. “It has been a long-standing goal of the city to cultivate a broad spectrum of medical-related organizations in our community.”

Construction of the new facility is slated to begin mid-October. Dallas-based HKS Inc. developed the facility’s architecture designs, and the project’s general contractor is West Valley City, Utah-based Jacobsen Construction.
