Where location, infrastructure and workforce converge
The Killeen-Temple-Fort Hood metro area is quickly becoming an industrial powerhouse.
A burgeoning city in Central Texas strategically located along the I-35 corridor, Temple is easily accessible via road, rail, and air. Temple is a principal city in the Killeen-Temple-Fort Hood Metropolitan Statistical Area, with San Antonio and Austin to the south and Dallas/Fort Worth to the north. Direct access to I-35 positions Temple within 180 miles of 80 percent of Texas’ population. With a qualified workforce, plenty of available land, and a pro-business attitude, Temple is a great location for advanced manufacturing operations or distribution and logistics companies. In addition, the health care and R&D activities at Baylor Scott & White position Temple as a hub for health and life sciences.
Killeen is located on US Highway 190 and Interstate 14, in the heart of the Grand Central Texas Region. Killeen is also home to Fort Hood, the largest active duty base of the U.S. Armed Forces – and many skilled veterans choose to stay and work in Central Texas.
