Univar breaks ground on new oil and gas facility near Eagle Ford shale

REDMOND, Wash. -- Univar Inc., a global distributor of industrial and specialty chemicals and related services, broke ground on a new 52,000 -sq-ft facility on 12 acres of land in Elmendorf, Texas, on May 20. The facility, in the Alamo Junction Rail Park south of San Antonio, is under construction, and is expected to be fully operational by the end of the year.

The new facility will be a full service distribution center with capabilities to blend and distribute packaged and bulk materials for customers at the north end of the Eagle Ford shale basin. Univar said it plans to expand its presence in Elmendorf during construction by relocating a few key employees and hiring approximately 20 people in the first year of operation.

The Elmendorf facility is one of three new oil and gas distribution facilities Univar plans to open in 2014, bringing its total number of dedicated oil, gas and mining facilities in the U.S. to 25.
