Kilgore shines bright in the Lone Star State.  The energy of our leadership and the cooperative actions of our city government combine to create a dynamic community that partners with its businesses.  And our goal is to create a business climate where our partners can operate competitively.

Watch or read what some of our partners have to say about the stellar Kilgore way:


‘I’ve chosen locations for distribution centers in three states.  KEDC put together the best package I’ve seen.  And I get support from staff I’ve not seen in other locations.  When I need something I feel the staff listen and truly want to do what we need.  Having worked with economic development groups in other states, I think KEDC has been one of the better relationships we’ve had.‘


Vic Price, Senior Vice President of Logistics
Orgill, Inc.


‘The bottom line is that the city of Kilgore is pro-development.  Our local leaders do a good job of balancing code enforcement and a business-friendly attitude.’

-Bryan Johnston, Vice-President
Merritt Preferred Components


‘Our business hires mainly engineers.  To capture engineering professionals, we knew we needed a modern, progressive environment.  Synergy Business Park has played an important role in that.  It is an engaging and creative environment.  Interviews and meetings are often conducted on the trails around the lake.’

-Ricardo Viloria, Vice-President of Sales and Business Development
