A company that sells water treatment equipment, technology and systems worldwide is eying a manufacturing facility in Hutto, potentially bringing up to 120 jobs to the city northeast of Austin.

Ovivo Inc. on Aug. 16 received approval from the Hutto Economic Development Corp. for an economic development performance agreement to receive incentives to open the facility at an undisclosed site. It will head to the City Council on Aug. 19 for final approval.

Ovivo, a subsidiary of Germany-based SKion Water GmbH, sells equipment such as filters, mixers, reverse osmosis machines and much more used in municipal water facilities and industrial plants around the globe.


Ovivo has had workers in the Austin area for more than two decades. It recently moved its office from North Austin to a site off East Old Settlers Boulevard in Round Rock.

Between 50 and 60 employees of Ovivo’s municipal team work out of the Round Rock office, and executives wanted to find a manufacturing site nearby, Bauer said.

“The reason we’re looking in the greater Austin area is because the municipal team is based in Round Rock,” he said, calling the new facility an “add-on” to their existing Austin-area presence.

Representatives from the company did not immediately respond to an email seeking additional comment. Representatives from the city declined to comment until the agreement is finalized.
