A Mexcor International affiliate purchased the former Hewlett Packard Enterprise building.

Mexcor, a wine and spirits importer, has an affiliate in adjacent properties, which will occupy some of the facility.

“We are excited to continue our investments in Northwest Houston and expand our campus footprint," Mexcor CEO Eduardo Morales said in a release. "This purchase of 66 acres and 2,050,000 square feet — in addition to our acquisition two years ago of the adjacent 28-acre facility with a 250,000-square-foot headquarter office and warehouse space represents our long-term optimism and commitment for our community. The combined 94-acre campus will position MEXCOR for continued growth of our distribution and logistics operations and also diversify into various technology driven ventures."
