EDINBURG, Texas- The Edinburg Economic Development Corporation (EEDC) is rapidly growing at North Industrial Park by hosting two groundbreakings in a month.
“Edinburg is the fastest-growing city in the RGV and it is reflected in the amount of business development seen around the city as well as the rapid expansion of the Edinburg North Industrial Park area,” says Blanca Davilla, Director of Economic Development.
On Friday, May 20, 2022, the Siddons-Martin Emergency Group is kicking off construction for its newest facility located at 700 Independence Dr. at North Industrial Park in Edinburg. Siddons-Martin provides emergency vehicle products and services to customers across Texas, New Mexico, and Louisiana. Relocating from Pharr to Edinburg, Siddons-Martin purchased a 3.5-acre property from the Economic Development Corporation for a total capital investment estimating $1,925,000. Siddons-Martin forecasts hiring an additional ten people in addition to the ten employees who will be relocating from their Pharr location to their new facility in Edinburg upon completion.
In late April, RGV Tours held a groundbreaking at North Industrial Park located at 800 Constitution Dr. in Edinburg. RGV Tours is a charter bus/tour operating since 2007, providing transportation services for all school districts, church groups, tour groups, and private companies. RGV Tours is the official transportation company for the UTRGV Athletics Department. Its headquarters is relocating from Pharr to Edinburg with a $500,000 capital investment. RGV Tours anticipates bringing an additional 30 new jobs to the area.
“Both projects combined will bring in an investment of $2.5M and total expected job creation of 50,” says Davilla.
Edinburg is continuously expanding to meet the needs of our growing economy offering inexpensive, undeveloped land, and available properties at competitive prices that allows freedom to grow a business.
