More manufacturing jobs are coming to the state of Nebraska thanks to a company based in Texas. A petroleum-goods based supply company, Tejas' arrival in the state stands to be a big gain for both the local community in the area of Norfolk, which is where they will be opening up shop, and Midwestern domestic manufacturing in a larger sense.
According to the Omaha World-Herald, this move will establish a plant that takes up 350,000 feet and employs 200 people, as well as drawing from local steel suppliers and driving up business for the state that way.
In addition, a local ABC affiliate quoted the owner of the business, Max Tejeda, on the opportunities that this particular area offered the company, and why it chose to expand its reach to include Nebraska. The facility is supposedly set to be finished sometime toward the end of next year, and is taking advantage of local incentives.
"We're impressed with Nebraska's fiscally-conservative approach to doing business," Tejeda said. "The City of Norfolk also was instrumental in convincing us to locate here. I can readily see the quality and dedication of the local workforce, and am looking forward to hiring hard-working Nebraskans to manufacture our line of quality products."
Once the business relationships have been set up, companies need to start thinking about the other long-term plans they need to expand their manufacturing operations. A relationship with a custom machining shop can help companies keep their equipment in working condition, and Windham Manufacturing is proud to tackle custom projects for our customers.
