Industry Recruitment

Companies come to College Station to start and grow. With a large population of young, educated people ready to work, we are an ideal location for businesses to thrive. With our short commute times, excellent quality of life, and proximity to major Texas metropolitans, College Station makes sense for ambitious companies. In 2019, Forbes ranked College Station No. 2 in the nation on its list of the best small places for businesses and careers. Being the home of Texas A&M University allows for intimate collaboration with people in a world-class university setting. The collaborative dynamic also provides companies with almost unlimited human capital as well as extensive international insight. The alliance has enabled attractive opportunities for expanding companies such as Advanta Seeds, FujiFilm Diosynth, Zoetis, and many others.

A major factor in businesses choosing to relocate and prosper here is the ready availability of a highly skilled and educated workforce. Frogslayer recently moved its headquarters to College Station, saying, “There really was no comparison when it came down to deciding where we should plant our roots. We’ve experimented with offices in Austin before and thought about moving to larger markets like Houston or Dallas. The university and local economy are growing — with that comes a sense of stability, job opportunities, and more to do.”

Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies is expanding its College Station facility with a capital investment of about $120 million. The company’s chief operating officer said, “We know that we need to invest now in technology, assets, and people to achieve a market leadership position. The expansion through the construction of the Gene Therapy Innovation Center demonstrates our ongoing commitment to growth.”
