Taylor

Taylor is centrally located to all points across Texas. Just 35 miles northeast of downtown Austin, Taylor is convenient to the metro area, including the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and The University of Texas. Located at the crossroads of U.S. Higway 95 and State Highway 79, companies will find the capability of moving goods, services, and people throughout the state via the highway system, railway, and by air. The Taylor Municipal Airport serves general aviation with quality fuel, hangar storage, and a 4,000-foot runway.

Available land is plentiful for new and expanding businesses. Mustang Creek Industrial Park and Walnut Creek Commercial Park are owned and operated by the Taylor Economic Development Corporation. Land grants and economic development incentive packages coupled with Taylor’s one-stop development process provide added value to any new business that considers Taylor as its new location.

Taylor is home to more than 30 manufacturing businesses that are supported by an abundant workforce within a 30-mile radius. A major resource to providing a trained workforce is the quality of education. With a $32.5 million high school that is a magnet to surrounding communities, students are provided with opportunities to advance toward higher education or workforce training. Employer workforce needs may be customized through Temple College at Taylor or Texas State Technical College.

The Taylor Economic Development Corporation and the City of Taylor will work closely together with any new or expanding business to assure success.
