Brask Neela, Inc.
In 2010, Louisiana-based Brask Neela constructed a new manufacturing facility in Pearland. The custom-fabricated heat transfer equipment manufacturer built a state-of-the-art fabrication facility on 9.45 acres in Pearland’s Industrial Drive Business Park. The strategic move allowed the company to better service petrochemical and chemical customers in Texas City, Freeport and Baytown as well as global clients.
Having the support of city officials and developing long-term relationships with the business community and local government were key to Brask Neela’s decision to build its fabricating facility in Pearland. To assist in relocation efforts, PEDC issued a $3.44 million industrial revenue bond on behalf of Brask Neela for land acquisition and construction of their new facility.
In addition to PEDC’s assistance with land acquisition and attractive incentives, Brask Neela was drawn to the location’s proximity to the workforce, the area’s infrastructure and open communications with the City. The impressive fabricating facilities include 100,000 square feet of production area, a clean room for high alloy material, a sandblast shop and capacity for high-quality engineering, fabrication, repair and maintenance of products operating in energy-related industries.
PEDC also assisted Brask Neela with an expansion project in 2015, providing incentives for the creation of 20 additional jobs at the facility, bringing total capital investment in Pearland by Brask Neela to $6.3 million.
