Creating A Culture Of Small Businesses & Innovative Manufacturing

The Ideal East Texas Location With A Ready Workforce

Athens is well connected to all compass points of middle and East Texas via federal, state and county roads and about an hour’s drive from the 5th largest metroplex in the U.S. There are over 900 people employed in biomedical research and manufacturing. The city is growing, enhancing and strengthening its workforce every year, yet Athens maintains it’s small town feel.

Unique Quality of Life

Athens has everything you need for your business and your life while still maintaining that small town charm. Great restaurants locally owned and national chains, a brewery, parks including an arboretum, a public large lake and even one of the largest freshwater fish hatchey run by Texas Parks and Wildlife in the USA, are just a few of the exciting amenities you can enjoy. Yet we have one of the lowest cost-of-living indexes in all of the southern United States.
