Cotton Companies co-owners Pete Bell and Daryn Ebrecht recently presented their consolidation and expansion plans at the October EDC General Assembly Meeting. Both owners are Katy natives and detailed their plan to move all their operations from Houston to the 33-acre Katy headquarters and charitable foundation campus located at the Katy Hockley cut-off road.
Cotton is a global disaster recovery firm that focuses on restoring property after fires, floods, hurricanes and tornadoes. Their clients include Fortune 500 and international companies. Cotton is constructing 23,000 sq. ft. in phase one of the project. Phase two will involve construction of a 40,000 sq. ft. Gulf Coast logistics warehouse and space to house their transportation equipment and should be complete by the end of 2012.
“The Cotton relocation is a good diversification for the area,” says Katy EDC President Lance LaCour. “We are pleased that Cotton has the confidence in Katy to bring all of their operations here.”
Cotton plans to hire up to an additional 50 people with the move.
