In the manufacturing world, it’s tough to beat Texas. With its robust business climate, ever-mushrooming labor pool and enviable operating costs, the Lone Star State is a choice destination for a variety of expanding and relocating companies, but especially Texas manufacturing firms.
In fact, a list of companies with Texas manufacturing operations reads like a veritable who’s who of industry giants.
Spanning sectors from aerospace, chemicals and automotive, to pharmaceuticals, semiconductors and the crown jewel oil and gas industry, top-tier Texas manufacturing employers include Lockheed Martin, Exxon Mobil, Dow Chemical, Texas Instruments, Halliburton, and scores more.
Furthermore, the thriving concentration of Texas manufacturing firms is consistently evolving thanks to a steady influx of new businesses setting up shop, especially in the booming North Texas region.
Nestled just 26 miles south of the vibrant Dallas-Fort Worth metro, the upscale suburb of Midlothian, population 34,000, has long embraced an industrial foundation.
A Dynamic Environment for Texas Manufacturing
The city’s visionary approach to shaping intelligent community growth, solid logistical infrastructure, and progressive educational measures have consistently fostered a dynamic environment ideal for long-term operational efficiency.
Home to cement producers Ash Grove, Martin Marietta and LafargeHolcim, as well as major firms Gerdau, Ennis Inc., Target Distribution, Buckley Oil and Applied LNG, Midlothian is well-versed in supporting Texas manufacturing and industrial operations.
With its 1,600-acre RailPort Business Park and the recently unveiled Midlothian Business Park, the city offers manufacturing companies prime real estate paired with strategic road, rail and air assets.
Additional competitive location advantages are rooted in tax exemptions, enterprise zones, low tax rates and other forms of local assistance.
Perhaps most importantly, Midlothian is committed to helping Texas manufacturers cultivate their most precious asset: people.
Through partnerships with the Midlothian Higher Education Center (MHEC) and Texas State Technical College (TSTC) in nearby Red Oak, area companies can elevate workforce productivity by tapping into continuing education, skills enhancement, and customized training.
