Industry Profiles

With a population of 30,006 people, Seguin is pro-business community that is committed to growth.  

Seguin's strategic, south-central location, its robust talent pool and workforce, lower cost of business relative to other locations in the region, solid infrastructure and its wide range of affordable and flexible real estate options, make it a prime location for companies from a variety of industries. 

Home to multiple Fortune 500 companies, Seguin's diverse economy features unique competitive advantages that satisfy the needs of growing industries such as manufacturing and distribution and logistics companies, healthcare, retail development, and corporate and regional offices. 

The Seguin Economic Development Corporation (SEDC) allocates funding to the Central Texas Technology Center (CTTC) that has been providing vital workforce development for the cities of Seguin and New Braunfels, as well as Comal and Guadalupe counties since 2004.  The CTTC works with regional industries in developing employee training programs and curriculums for local manufacturers such as Caterpillar, Continental, CMC Steel and Alamo Group. The CTTC remains a key asset in sustaining Seguin’s vibrant economy through their role of developing Seguin's local workforce, better positioning us to recruit new business and most importantly- to retain and expand existing businesses.

Seguin continues to be one of the strongest manufacturing clusters in the region. In fact, as the nation experienced the effects of the economic downturn starting in 2008, Seguin added jobs at a rate almost unmatched in Texas. Seguin remains positioned to continue to compete well for future projects with ample developable property, excellent access to major thoroughfares of I-10 and SH130, a competitive tax environment, and a strong available workforce.
