Testimonials

Although most of our sales are not local, Hillsboro has proven to be an excellent location for a distribution facility.  We have very easy access to Dallas/Fort Worth, Austin/San Antonio, and Houston/Gulf Coast areas.  Hillsboro is also an excellent route for anyone that has NAFTA shipments.  As I have told my company executives, Hillsboro is on the big street that connects Canada and Mexico.  The labor force has proven strong with many qualified candidates for warehouse positions, inside and outside sales, as well as facility management positions.  The triple freeport exemption allows companies to take advantage of qualified tax breaks and you won't find a less expensive market for real estate.  If anyone would ever like to discuss, let me know.

Thermafoam came to Hillsboro in 2007. Since that time the city and county have laid a strong taxation foundation and created a solid business infrastructure that has allowed us to flourish through a myriad of economic cycles. Our connection to the community is deeply rooted through the employees, neighbors, schools and churches that are a part of our everyday lives. The business partnership with the EDC & Chamber of Commerce present us with opportunities for growth and development we did not have at our previous location in Ft. Worth. We are proud and grateful to be in Hillsboro.

General Manager, Thermafoam

True to form: Leadership across sectors.

Here in the true heart of Texas, half measures aren’t our style. We’re always ready to pour on the performance with a wealth of human, natural and logistical resources. For example, when Canadian-based shingle manufacturer IKO Industries began a location search for its new flagship manufacturing facility, representing a $100 million investment, Hillsboro was able to immediately answer all of IKO’s critical needs, from limestone for manufacturing to rail for rapid delivery to an air attainment zone designation for the company’s green commitment.

 

IKO has joined a thriving industrial sector in Hillsboro, where success is evident in plant expansions as well as expanded bottom lines. Hillsboro industry is building a better world through rugged, reliable and aesthetically superior products, like Gate Precast’s handsome concrete facades, the beautiful and durable Brandom Cabinets of Wisenbaker Builder Services, and the top-quality wood trusses, engineered lumber, shipping materials and laminate products of Universal Forest Products. Hillsboro companies are go-to leaders: Global energy giants turn to Bobcat Contracting to keep oil and gas pipelines flowing, and in 2015, Clayton Homes counted on Clayton Supply to provide the quality materials to produce 15,000 manufactured and mobile homes.

 

In Hillsboro, we take pride in what we do. Our deep roots in agriculture have endowed this area with rich natural resources as well as a solid work ethic. Other important cross-sector advantages include:

  • Ample acreage flexibly parceled: At the Hillsboro Industrial Park, varied parcel sizes range from 30 acres to 300 acres.

  • Strategic central location and multimodal logistics: For industrial, light industrial and warehousing operations, Hillsboro’s strategic central location on the NAFTA superhighway at the I-35 split—with rail onsite at the Hillsboro Industrial Park—insures rapid access to domestic and global markets.

  • Excellent water and power resources. A deregulated energy market plus abundant water supply cover industry needs well into the future.

  • Bottom-line incentives: As a Type A corporation, the HEDC is ready to fully incentivize startups or relocations. Here in the true heart of Texas, industry flourishes with the true boost of whole-hearted support.
