Bauer Equipment America, in conjunction with GEFCO A BAUER Group Company, broke ground on August 3, 2022, to mark the start of the construction for the new Bauer GEFCO facility in Conroe Park North. The facility will be used for the assembly and manufacturing of GEFCO drilling rigs and will also include state-of-the-art classrooms for operator trainings, staff offices, and more.
Leading the groundbreaking was CEO Jochen Grundmann and GEFCO Director of Sales Chip Nelson, along with other Bauer executives (Michael Stomberg, Christian Gress, Stephan Oosthuizen, and Andre Siegel). Conroe Mayor Jody Czajkoski and Conroe Economic Development Council Associate Director Jennifer Matthews were also in attendance.
“We are excited to invest in our industry and break ground on our new state-of-the-art facility,” said Nelson. “It is important that we continue to manufacture productive drilling equipment for future generations of drillers. GEFCO also understands the importance of continuing education, and we look forward to offering our customers training they need in a facility that can accommodate hands-on experiences.”
