Bingham Industries, a precision manufacturer of ultra-high pressure (UHP) water jet parts, is pulling stakes in Seattle and moving to Terrell. It expects to be operational here around the first of July.
The 25-year-old family owned enterprise expects to bring 15 to 20 jobs here over the next year or so, according to company President Jeremy Bingham. The actual number will depend in part on the local labor force, he noted.
Bingham Industries prides itself in building among the finest UHP water jet parts and accessories in the world. The company has extensive involvement in 40,000PSI technology and has brought to market popular technologies and products.
“A lot of our industry is down in Houston and over in Louisiana, so getting out of Seattle and down to Terrell is going to be a lot more advantageous for us to be closer to our customer base,” noted Bingham.
Customer base was just one of many reasons for relocating to Terrell, according to Bingham.
“We had to get out of western Washington. I wanted to get to the middle of the country. I wanted to get to a better cost of doing business, better cost of living, better weather, better business environment,” explained Bingham, who recently settled with his family in the McClendon-Chisholm area.
Working with Drew Jacoy of TENANTBASE, a commercial leasing company serving the Metroplex, Bingham was shown properties in Rockwall, Garland, Mesquite and Terrell, he said.
“We thought this (Terrell) was the best fit in terms of what we’re looking for in quality of life and pace and traffic and population density,” said Bingham.
Bingham Industries will occupy 20,000 square feet of property at 2000 Airport Road. The company will add yet another dimension to Terrell’s manufacturing sector.
“We are pleased that Bingham Industries chose Terrell for their business,” said Ray Dunlap, president of the Terrell EDC. “We look forward to their long-term success in our community.”
