Walker Engineering will relocate and expand its Central Texas facilities into Pflugerville, following council's approval of an agreement between the Pflugerville Community Development Corp. and Walker Engineering on Jan. 12.

Walker Engineering is an electrical engineering contractor and employs 1,850 workers companywide. Walker Engineering will consolidate its Austin office and warehouses to relocate to a 19,870-square-foot facility at 18919 N. Heatherwilde Blvd., Pflugerville.

“We are truly happy and excited to relocate to our new, larger office in Pflugerville,” Director of Operations Chris Crowley said in the news release. “This move represents another significant milestone for our dynamic and fast-growing company. The new office space will allow our employees to once again be housed in a single location and enables us to establish roots in a fast-growing part of Central Texas.”

As noted in the performance agreement, the PCDC will provide a relocation grant of up to $40,000 over a five-year term. In exchange, Walker Engineering will relocate or hire 50 employees in its first year in Pflugerville and 20 new jobs each year afterward, for a total of 130 jobs by the fifth year.

“We welcome Walker Engineering and look forward to the relocation and expansion of their Central Texas facilities to Pflugerville," PCDC Executive Director Amy Madison said in the release. "With this move, they are investing $1.85 million in an innovative new space for 130 current and future employees to support their company culture that has spurred their growth."
