Competitive Advantages

"As the owner of a medium-sized manufacturing company, I appreciate the value Hillsboro EDC brings to the community, helping to promote the pro-business environment in Hill County.The EDC’s business recruiting efforts have attracted businesses that expand our local economy and offer career growth in our labor market. Many of these recruits complement current businesses in the county. For example, one of the companies who invested in a new plant in Hillsboro has become a very good customer for Kase.The ongoing programs of the EDC benefit small businesses, as well. The quarterly Managers’ Breakfasts allow local plant managers to share ideas, and the Job Fairs conducted by the EDC and Workforce Commission attract job candidates for us. When you combine this environment with the location and transportation advantages of Central Texas, it makes sense to continue to invest in our family’s businesses here."
