AUSTIN, Texas—HID Global, a leader in identity solutions, announced Oct. 17 its plans to build a new center of operations here.

The multiyear project on the construction of the new 200,000-square-foot facility will begin in December. Once completed, existing manufacturing operations, warehousing, distribution and customer service activities across North America will be consolidated into the Austin facility.

The center represents the company’s commitment to improving efficiency, delivery performance, and minimizing its environmental impact.

“The robust business climate and positive economic conditions in Austin were strong considerations in our final site selection,” Denis Hebert, president and CEO of HID Global, said in a prepared statement.

The new operations center will be the company’s largest facility in the region.
