Manufacturing & Distribution

Home » Manufacturing

Lubbock boasts a healthy manufacturing industry as it is centrally located in the United States, in close proximity to the BNSF railway, has access to an international airport and is strategically situated between five major highways. Big-name distributors have moved their business to the city, specifically in Lubbock’s Business Park and Rail Port, both just one mile from the Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport. These distributing and manufacturing locations make it easy to transport goods anywhere in the country. 

A city known for a pair of iconic frames and access to a Tier One research institution, Lubbock, Texas is home to a robust manufacturing industry that turns a passion for creating into solutions for real world issues.
