Consolidation of North American operations is expected to yield significant long-term benefits for HID customers and the city of Austin
The Genuine HID Operations Center for North America will become the company’s largest facility in the region

HID Global, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, announced the initiation of a comprehensive, multiyear project to establish a new North American center of operations. The new Genuine HID Operations Center will be located in Austin, Texas. The project will commence with breaking ground on construction of a new 200,000-square-foot facility in December of this year.  Once the building is completed, existing manufacturing operations, warehousing, distribution and customer service activities across North America will be consolidated into the Austin facility.

The new center represents a significant investment in the company’s ongoing advancements in delivery performance, product quality and facility security while minimizing its environmental impact and maximizing the process efficiency of its global operations.

“The robust business climate and positive economic conditions in Austin were strong considerations in our final site selection,” said Denis Hébert, president and CEO of HID Global. “Of equal importance was that the innovative, vibrant culture in the community aligns so well with our company culture and values.  The bottom line is that Austin is a great place for us to invest in the future growth of our business.”

“HID Global is a valued partner in our nation’s efforts to strengthen cybersecurity,” said Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX), Chairman of Homeland Security Oversight and founder of the Cybersecurity and High Tech Congressional Caucuses.  “Their North American operations center is a perfect fit for the vast concentration of high tech employers in Central Texas and specifically in the 10th Congressional District.  I look forward to working with HID Global both in the Congress and at home to advance our common goal of strengthening our national security.”

The new Genuine HID Operations Center for North America will become the company’s largest facility in the region.  The decision to locate in Austin, Texas was the result of a comprehensive evaluation process.
