Economic Expansion in West Texas
When companies choose to Go Big in Texas, more and more are choosing to go west.
West Texas is in the midst of an economic boom as companies flock to its cities. Odessa and Midland were both ranked as top three metros for economic development projects by Site Selection magazine in 2019. The region’s hard-working roots in agriculture and energy have come together with a strong education base to create a 21st century economy that is helping Texas lead the nation in installed wind power capacity, manufacturing with the latest technologies from the likes of Cargill and Owens Corning, and innovations from business services and financial firms such as ADP, Charles Schwab, HP Enterprise, and Charter Communications in El Paso.
