TexAmericas Center has the operating capabilities of a municipality but functions more like a traditional real estate development company. In addition to controlling our own zoning and permitting processes and sustaining the life cycle of public infrastructure on the complex, TAC has the capability to lease, build to suite, or facilitate Greenfield owner-constructed projects in a timely and efficient manner. The TexAmericas Center is governed by a 15 member Board of Directors representing each Municipal and County government in Bowie County.

Mission: The mission of the TexAmericas Center is to create jobs and tax base by expanding its current sales and lease portfolio to potential companies seeking to expand or relocate to take advantage of the Texarkana regions over 400,000 person labor shed.

The labor market doesn’t have a ‘skills gap’—it has an opportunity gap

One persons problem is another's opportunity!

What if we looked hard at our local employers and asked what keeps you from growing here. Then what if we solved those problems, so that there was no reason for existing area employers not to add jobs here. Workforce related issues is within the realm of our region to provide solutions. What other issues can we solve locally?

It is time to abandon the skills gap narrative. It treats labor markets as transactional and assumes hiring processes are objective with regard to how employers recruit, sort, and assess the value of candidates.

Resiliency, innovation will dictate the future growth of the aerospace and defense industry

Study ranks US #1 and Texas #4...behind GA, WA and OH. The take away - states that continue to support the growth of A&D clusters will likely continue to attract domestic and foreign investment. These geographic locations need to sustain themselves through the COVID-19 recession and continue to be at the forefront of innovation — not only in what they produce, but ... how they produce it. At the same time, these communities and the industry's found there should attend to the perennial challenges of attracting talent and nurturing the next generation of engineers and shop-floor specialists.

By Scott Thompson PwC’s recently published seventh annual edition of aerospace manufacturing attractiveness rankings comes during a period of considerable upheaval for the industry. Indeed, the global aerospace and defense (A&D) industry will likely look back on 2020 not only
