HOUSTON, TEXAS (September 24, 2014) – Jerry Stoller, founder and president of Stoller Group, announced the groundbreaking at the site of the company’s future headquarters in Spring Valley Village in Houston, Texas.
The new office space will allow Stoller Group to consolidate employees of its various entities into one address, including employees of StollerUSA, Stoller International, Stoller Enterprises and the Stoller Foundation.
Mr. Stoller issued the following statement regarding the new office space and its impact on the future of Stoller Group:
“This is an exciting day for me and for Stoller Group. Today we are breaking ground on a facility that will allow us to bring all of our business units together under one roof. Our goal is to create a collaborative, creative atmosphere where we can work as a united team to analyze the needs of our nation’s crop producers and provide them with the innovative solutions they need to feed the world’s growing population.
“As our company continues to grow and expand its global reach, further establishing our position as a global leader in plant nutrition, this move will allow us to communicate more seamlessly between teams and organizations and produce new innovations more efficiently. This will allow us to provide better products and customer service to our customers, delivering on our brand promise to find new and better ways to help crop producers unleash the power of plants.
“This move sets the stage for us to continue to build and expand our team of innovators and ensure that Stoller Group and its entities will be productive and contributing to the success of crop producers around the world long after I leave this world. I get great satisfaction knowing that my work and my passion have helped ─ and will continue to help ─ people across the globe.
It’s a supreme challenge for those of us in agriculture to find ways to feed an ever-increasing global population. The Stoller Group plans to be at the forefront of delivering the innovative solutions that will be needed to feed and clothe more than 9 billion people by the year 2050.”
Stoller is developing the Spring Valley Village in partnership with the Ersa Grae Corporation, a real estate development and management firm focusing on developing retail, residential and mixed-use properties. From site selection and feasibility analysis to financing and construction, the Ersa Grae Corporation integrates every step of the development process.
“We are happy to be a part of developing the future headquarters for Stoller Group,” said Ali Ebrahimi, CEO of Ersa Grae Corporation. “Our goal is to provide Stoller Group and our other tenants with an efficient, elegant workspace with the latest amenities, so they can collaborate effectively and develop the innovative products that they are known for the world over.”
The Stoller Group will occupy more than two floors of the building once it is completed. The Spring Valley Village structure will be approximately 98,500 gross square feet in size.
