Explore why Beaumont is Booming

While other places have investments in the millions, Beaumont and Southeast Texas’ investment is in the billions and continues to grow. With an abundance of industry in oil and gas, electricity, agriculture, and even retail, the Southeast Texas region is a promising location for businesses and corporations to establish themselves and develop as companies. The state of Texas offers unique tax incentives and financial opportunities, while offering land and development opportunities at a low price in Southeast Texas.

Why Beaumont

With $80 billion worth of current and planned industrial projects, more than $4.5 billion in infrastructure projects and more than $460 million in commercial and retail projects, the Greater Beaumont area is booming with economic activity. Highways, airport, rail, port and pipeline connectivity make Beaumont an attractive place to do business. A lower cost of living and a year-round outdoor climate makes Beaumont the ideal place to live.
