Wilmer recognized in the national Texas Economic Development Guide

MAYOR PETTA

WILMER, TEXAS – The City of Wilmer was recently recognized in the 2022/2023 Texas Economic Development Guide by Site Selection Magazine https://siteselection.com/cc/texas/2022/digital.html#page=1.

The City received recognition for its outstanding growth in the area with a number of national facilities eyeing Wilmer as an excellent location to move distribution headquarters.

While it was stated that Houston was a huge market for growth in 2022, the real star regarding the location of incoming national logistic hubs is the Dallas-Fort Worth area, topping the state with 187 projects.

“This area has reaped the benefit of outstanding growth along with our neighboring cities seeing three of the top 10 projects since the beginning of 2021,” said Sheila Petta, Mayor of City of Wilmer. “We are thrilled to be part of the expansion in the southern sector of Dallas, and we have many plans ahead to continue to facilitate future growth.”

Wilmer’s main growth spurt will come from Walmart’s $420 million, 1000-job project that has chosen the small city as its new home. While there is no completion date for this project, the progression of these national hubs to the Wilmer area certainly means change to the small community.  The guide also indicated that in 2022 Dallas-Fort Worth surpassed the market’s previous record high of under construction activity of 54 million square feet, which was the total at the end of 2021.
