GVEC “Great Things are Happening in the Guadalupe Valley”
GVEC is a vital partner in the Guadalupe Valley’s ongoing Economic Development by going above and beyond to anticipate and support the needs of the various companies that make up the south central Texas manufacturing mecca. This Coop, which started small in 1938, now provides a robust infrastructure, reliable utilities, and proactive services to drive growth and innovation in this thriving region between Austin, San Antonio, Victoria, and Houston. Companies that call the GVEC region home include Caterpillar, Inc., CMC Steel, Marathon Oil and Cal-Maine Foods, Inc. GVEC’s dedicated Industrial and Commercial account reps love working with site selectors. They want companies to reap as many of Texas business advantages as possible, from incentives to grants and funding, to tax credits, to permit assistance, and more.
“I love our region,” says GVEC Economic Development Director Daisy Scheske Freeman. “Part of our territory is urban and another part is rural, so GVEC gets the best of both worlds.”
