Another life science company locks in site at Pearland's Lower Kirby
In December 2021, life-science company Millar, Inc. hopped on the Pearland bandwagon and broke ground on a headquarters, R&D, and manufacturing facility in Lower Kirby.
It joins fellow big names Lonza, Merit Medical, Cardiovascular Systems, and Endress+Hauser, among others, which are already located in the area that's popular with life science, energy, and manufacturing businesses.
“We looked everywhere, all over, when we were deciding where to move, but ultimately we decided that Pearland, with its life science presence, was the place for us,” says Millar CEO Tim Daugherty. “We know that this facility is going to take us to the next level as a company.”
Located on a five-acre site on Kirby Drive, just south of Beltway 8, the 56,000-square-foot facility will be home to approximately 120 employees and is scheduled to open in 2022. The headquarters and manufacturing facility will also house the company’s R&D and warehouse functions.
Pearland Economic Development Corporation and Pearland city officials began working with Millar on its relocation to a tract within Lower Kirby, furthering their reputation as a city that supports new and small businesses.
Lower Kirby is a 1,200-acre mixed-use development in northwest Pearland, at the intersection of South Beltway 8 and State Highway 288, that's home to office, retail, commercial, and industrial projects and continuing to expand.
Founded in 1969, Millar, Inc. pioneered the development of pressure sensor technology, directing its design and manufacturing expertise toward integrating that technology into catheters for life sciences and clinical applications.
Today, it's a leading developer and manufacturer of those pressure sensor-enabled devices, and partners with global leaders in technology, manufacturing, and healthcare to turn breakthrough technologies into life-saving medical innovations.
