Turtle & Hughes Expands in Texas with New Austin Hub

The 40,000-square-foot facility is designed to deliver energy-efficient solutions to the region’s 'thriving' technology sector.

On. Feb. 16, electrical and industrial supplies distributor Turtle & Hughes, Inc. announced it is opening a new 40,000-square-foot facility in Austin, Texas.

The company said the new facility expands its commitment to sustainability. Supported by its 100,000-square-foot presence in the Houston area — along with customer and vendor relationships that go back more than four decades — Austin is a “natural growth market,” Turtle & Hughes said.

“Austin is one of the most exciting and fastest-growing innovation hubs in the country. We at Turtle are enormously proud to be part of this forward-looking community at a time of profound energy transition,” said Kathleen Shanahan, Turtle CEO.

Other than New York and New Jersey — where Turtle was founded and grew over the last century — the Gulf Coast market has been the company’s longest established region, the company said. From planning to opening, the new facility took just under nine months, Turtle & Hughes said.

“We are excited to be extending our reach to Austin and the vibrant cities surrounding it. At the same time, we can serve our Houston-area customers who have a presence there or plan to establish one,” said Bob Courcy, Regional VP Gulf Coast, which also has offices in the Houston and LaPorte area, as well as in Geismar, Louisiana.
