In 2013, Dover Energy, which provides highly-engineered solutions for the safe and efficient extraction and handling of critical fluids worldwide in the drilling, production and downstream markets, selected Pearland as the location for its 150,000 manufacturing and operations center during a multi-city site search. PEDC assisted Dover Energy with regulatory and zoning issues throughout the six-month site selection process, along with providing an incentive package to secure the relocation in the city.
In 2020, Dover expanded its campus with the construction of a 12,000 square-foot Innovation Lab. The new building houses test rigs, allowing R&D engineers to develop new application solutions and conduct product performance testing under demanding operating conditions. Dover currently employs over 300 at the Pearland campus and has invested over $26.6 million in the community.
