A Message from
our Board of
Chambers County Economic Development Foundation has endeavored to make the
Baytown area the best move for corporate expansion and relocation since
September 5, 1986. During that time, work has focused upon creating and
preserving jobs by addressing regional issues which resulted in many of the most
prestigious companies selecting our area for new investments creating employment
for hundreds of people.
We attribute our
progress to strong community leadership and supportive financial partners.
Guiding the Foundation is a 35-member board of directors representing major
industry, financial institutions, chambers of commerce, local media, citizens,
the City of Baytown, as well as Harris and Chambers Counties. Our financial
partners include local businesses, Chambers County, Harris County, the Port of
Houston and the Baytown Municipal Development District.
In the beginning, we
envisioned new businesses setting up shop in the area, existing businesses
expanding their operations to Baytown, and a vitalizing atmosphere in which all
industry could prosper. Today we are proud to be working directly with more
than 35 companies that, over the past ten years, have invested $1.75 billion in
our community, created 2200 jobs and generated $54.4 million in new tax
revenues. Because our public-private partnership has believed in Baytown all
along, we have a compelling story about new jobs, an expanding tax base, and
mastering challenges on behalf of business.
We believe business
- whether it's an industrial entity, wholesale distribution or commercial
development - can tap its individual potential in Baytown. We invite you to
expand your boundaries and realize grand possibilities in the Baytown area.
