ROSENBERG, Texas – (Realty News Report) – Wet Sounds, a maker of high-performance marine and powersports audio systems, plans to build a new facility in Rosenberg spanning 118,386 SF of warehouse, fabrication and office space.
A design/build project by Houston-based KDW, the new Wet Sounds facility will be located on a 27-acre tract at 2975 Louise Street, about a mile north of the Southwest Freeway (Highway 59).
“Wet Sounds will bring significant capital investment to the tax rolls and create 40 to 50 high-paying jobs,” says Rosenberg Mayor William Benton. “It is a first-class company. We are honored to have them here in Rosenberg and greatly look forward to working with them.”
The site, near Airport Avenue, has been master planned to accommodate a total of 280,000 SF of future development.
Founded in 2005, Wet Sounds product lines include high-end marine and powersports amps, soundbars and subwoofers. The company also offers a line of audio-powered coolers and accessories.
Construction of the new Rosenberg facility and adjacent warehouse is expected to begin in August with an anticipated project completion of spring 2021.
Currently located in southwest Houston, Wet Sounds employs 45 warehouse, fabrication office personnel.
The Wet Sounds project is part of a continued expansion to the southwest of Houston into Fort Bend County. Growth has been surging beyond Sugar Land.
As Sugar Land reaches a saturation point, residential development is spiking in the Rosenberg-Richmond market, where both cities have scored major economic development wins in the past year. Soon to open in Rosenberg is Dollar Tree’s 1 million-SF distribution center. Less than four miles away in Richmond, Trammell Crow Co. will build an 850,000-SF e-commerce fulfillment center for Amazon, which will hire 1,000 employees.
