It was Tuesday when the Insite first reported Farouk Systems, headed by Farouk Shami, is considering moving from Harris County to Montgomery County.  Officials with the Harris County Department of Community Development said they were working to keep the company that employs a thousand people at its Pennbright location in Harris County.  We have now received a response from officials at Farouk who have not denied the allegation.

The Statement:

As a Houston-based international company that has seen tremendous growth over the past 25 years, we are always exploring expansion opportunities within the great state of Texas. Farouk Systems is dedicated to bringing manufacturing back to America. Our initiatives support economic growth and development.


Thank You,
