Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. (MCFA) will add to its Houston-area presence by building a 71,000-square-foot, manufacturing facility and distribution center on 10 acres in Conroe (Texas) Industrial Park. The facility will be part of a joint venture between MCFA and Jungheinrich AG, a material-handling equipment company in Hamburg, Germany.
Archway Properties is the developer, and Arco Construction Co. the general contractor. The facility is expected to be completed this year.
The manufacturing and distribution center follows MCFA’s relocation of production of its Cat Lift DP100N-DP160N forklift truck series from Japan to its Houston manufacturing base on West Sam Houston Parkway. Additionally, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. in Japan, relocated its headquarters from New York to Greenway Plaza last year.
Another MHI company, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Compressor International Corp., opened a 180,000-square-foot manufacturing plant in Pearland, TX, approximately two years ago.
