HEDCO (Henderson Economic Development Corporation)  has announced its ambitious initiative to bolster economic development with the establishment of the East Texas Regional Business Park. 

Mayor Fullen, speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony, hailed the Business Park as the most substantial advancement in Henderson's economic history over the past quarter-century. He emphasized the pivotal role the Business Park will play in fostering new business ventures, job creation, and capital investments, expressing gratitude to all partners involved in bringing this transformative project to fruition. 

Strategically located in northwest Henderson, nestled between Loop 571, State Hwy 323, and FM 2276, the East Texas Regional Business Park spans approximately 300 acres, offering prime sites ranging from 1 to 40 acres. The $6 million infrastructure project encompasses essential amenities such as sewer and water service, storm drains, electric, natural gas, sidewalks, and streets. Additionally, final touches are being made on fiber optic design, entry monument signs, and the development of a scenic lake complemented by greenbelt areas and recreational trails. 

John Clary, Executive Director of HEDCO, underscored the importance of ensuring the Business Park is "shovel ready" in today's fast-paced economic landscape. He emphasized the need for immediate availability of infrastructure to attract businesses, asserting that the East Texas Regional Business Park will provide a competitive edge in securing job opportunities and investments. Clary expressed confidence that the Business Park will not only enhance Henderson's economic profile but also serve as an attractive destination for new businesses seeking a conducive environment for growth and innovation. 

The establishment of the East Texas Regional Business Park signifies a significant stride towards unlocking Henderson's economic potential and fostering a thriving business ecosystem. As construction progresses, HEDCO remains committed to facilitating economic opportunities and driving sustainable growth for the city and its residents.

Industrial and Manufacturing In Henderson

Henderson was once a gateway to Texas for settlers moving from points east into Texas.  Some of these settlers settled down right here due to Henderson’s great climate, abundance of water, ample timber for construction and its beautiful landscape.  Today, Henderson continues to have a bustling economy for much the same reasons. Over 470,000 population reside within 35 miles and over 670,000 are within 45 miles. 

Henderson has been an agricultural and industrial hub in East Texas for many years and the future is bright.  The city has ample water resources.  Great highway infrastructure ensures efficient transportation of products in and out of Henderson and rail service is available via a short line railway. 

Industrial development proliferated after the East Texas oil boom burst open in the 1930s and oil and gas production is still strong.  Other industrial sectors include brick manufacturing, specialty product manufacturing, food processing, metal fabrication and several wood products related to the timber industry.

Many of the industrial companies are located within our three industrial park areas, including the Henderson Industrial ParkSouthwest Industrial Park, and the Preston Road Industrial Park.

"This new Business Park is the most significant advancement the Henderson Economic Development Corporation Board and the City Council have made in the past 25 years! "
