Companies Are Moving to North Texas
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple years, it would’ve been hard to miss the following headlines:
“Two More Companies are Moving to North Texas”
“Is Texas the new California?”
“Multiple Corporations are Relocating to North Texas”
This trend is not new and not surprising. Due to lower cost of highly skilled labor, low taxes and decreased regulations, it’s no wonder companies are moving to North Texas. As a perk for the employees, North Texas offers affordable housing and very livable suburbs with great public schools. Of those companies moving to North Texas, several are Fortune 500 bringing thousands of jobs and investments to different areas including Irving, Plano, and other northern suburbs. See below for a list of several companies bringing new jobs to North Texas:
Toyota: 1,000+ new jobs coming to West Plano, and 4,000 more asked to relocate and $350M on a new campus
Liberty Mutual Insurance: Adding a $325M expansion project, 4,000 employees and 1,000 additional construction jobs to Plano.
State Farm Insurance: At least 140 new jobs now with more jobs in the future for the largest office lease in Dallas history.
Amazon: Adding 1000 new jobs to their 6th Texas fulfillment center; 4th in DFW.
Facebook: Building a $1B data center near North Fort Worth. While only 40 new jobs will be added, the 250k SF building will offer many construction opportunities.
Companies are moving to North Texas and with that comes more money and commerce to our area. Sometimes that also means higher hotel rates.
