Hutto (Williamson County) — A global water treatment company recently filed a permit with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation for an $11 million facility.

The move comes on the heels of the city approving an economic agreement with Ovivo in August to bring a 109,908 square-foot manufacturing facility to town.

The economic agreement requires the company to invest $25 million by the end of 2024 at its Hutto site, along with creating at least 96 full-time jobs by the end of 2027.

The water and wastewater technology products facility will be located on 7.9 acres that are undeveloped and located at 1120 New Technology Blvd. in the city’s Innovation Business Park.

The company’s membrane bioreactor systems employ high tech technology to treat wastewater for reuse, according to Ovivo’s website.

The scope of work involves the construction of a new vertical building with administrative office and manufacturing space.

Construction on the site is expected to begin on Jan. 1, 2022 and conclude by Sept. 1, with the facility fully operational by early 2023.

Ovivo is a subsidiary of the German-based company SKion Water GmbH.

The city said that Ovivo chose the Hutto location due to the existing infrastructure of the Innovation Business Park, the proximity to the Texas State Technical College and the opportunity to expand at the proposed location, according to KVUE.

GBA Engineers out of Lenexa, Kansas are on board the project.
