Dallas-Fort Worth has been climbing toward the top of the list of U.S. metro areas with the most corporate relocations and expansions. The region ranked second with 231 projects, according to the March 2017 issue of Site Selection Magazine. The region ranked third the previous year in that category, which applies to metro areas with more than 1 million people.
International relocations and expansions to Dallas-Fort Worth are helping push the Dallas Region toward the top of the pile, said Mike Rosa, Senior Vice President of Economic Development at the Dallas Regional Chamber.
Among major international expansions and relocations in North Texas are the Toyota North America campus, Huawei, Samsung, Kubota and Hilti.
“International companies are looking for a growing workforce, a strong economy and a low-regulatory environment,” said Rosa. “They have found those qualities in the Dallas Region, which has seen more than 500,000 additional jobs in the past five years; many of these new jobs are the result of international relocations or expansions.”
“Two additional, important factors in our favor is that we have no state income tax, and there’s plenty of land available for corporate campuses, near quality housing in great neighborhoods,” he said.
