Part of our Business Retention and Expansion (BRE) Program, Company Visits are crucial to developing long-term relationships between the City and existing Seguin businesses. Held with a company’s CEO, plant manager, general manager, site leader and/or Human Resources manager, company visits help SEDC staff gain a better understanding of the inner workings and challenges of our local industries. Through visits, staff develop a clear understanding of the company’s products as well as markets in which it operates, all the while listening to specific concerns related to their operations. These visits also give staff the opportunity to identify resources, share information on City and SEDC initiatives, and offer resolutions to issues impacting the Seguin business community.
Company Visit Requirements
We strive to help all existing businesses in Seguin grow and expand. As a Type A Economic Development Organization, governed by Chapters 501, 502 and 504 of the Texas Local Government Code, permissible SEDC activities and expenditures are typically dedicated to the creation or retention of Primary Jobs. Per Chapter 501 of the Texas Local Government Code, businesses that provide Primary Jobs are included only within certain sectors of the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). SEDC BRE visits are typically limited to primary job businesses. If you are not considered a primary job business, please don’t hesitate to contact our office. We will always try to answer any questions you may have, and work to provide assistance and guidance for your business.
