About The Region

The GVEC Region spans a 3,500 square-mile area over 13 counties in South Central Texas. 

We are located in proximity to San Antonio and Austin; two of the fastest growing cities in the Nation.  Major highway arteries, Interstate 10 and Interstate 35 provide access North, South, East and West.

Adjacent Guadalupe and Comal counties, in our eastern territory, have established themselves as a manufacturing hub attracting Fortune 500 companies such as Caterpillar, Amazon, Sysco, Niagara Bottling Company and others in recent years.

Gonzales and Lavaca counties in our western territory are home to a cluster of food-related industries including Adams Extract, Kitchen Pride Mushroom Farm, Holmes Food, Tyson, Calmaine, J Bar B Foods, Eddy Packing, and Soncrest Eggs among others.

The Guadalupe and San Marcos Rivers converge in the GVEC Region and flow through our communities making this one of the premier recreational destinations in the State.
