Gulf Coast Texas

Beaumont-Port Arthur | College Station-Bryan | Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land

From energy to health care, aerospace and information technology, the Gulf region benefits from a skilled workforce, world-class infrastructure and transportation system and a pro-business environment that stimulates these growing industries.

Houston, which boasts the 4th largest U.S. metro economy, is at the heart of the region. Known for its distinctly favorable business climate, the “City with No Limits” is one of the most important industrial bases in the world and is home to 20 Fortune 500 companies throughout downtown Houston and upscale suburbs like The Woodlands, Sugar Land and Pearland. The Texas Medical Center – the world’s largest medical complex – continues to expand in Houston with more than $3 billion in construction in the works.

Located in the center of the Texas Triangle (Dallas-San Antonio-Houston) and anchored by the cities of Bryan and College Station, The Research Valley is an international leader in engineering, agriculture and biomedical innovations through the presence of the Texas A&M System, Texas A&M University, and several key state research and extension agencies that also fuel the workforce with 77,000 students.

The Beaumont-Port Arthur MSA is at the core of the nation's petroleum and chemical industries with unparalleled access to the Gulf of Mexico.
