"We are excited to receive this acknowledgment from the great State of Texas.", says Jim Ratchford, Executive Director of the Texas Consilium.
ARLINGTON, TX, May 09, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- In a recent House Resolution (HR 922) from the House of Representatives, State Capitol in Austin Texas, it was recognized that the Texas Consilium has played an instrumental role in fostering a strong and competitive manufacturing industry in the Lone Star State.
This nonprofit corporation was formed in July 2015 through an expansion out of the Texas Manufacturing Assistance Center (TMAC) and The University of Texas at Arlington. It is dedicated to economic development and maintains a statewide network of resource providers that offer technical and business assistance to small and medium-sized manufacturers.
"The Texas Consilium is providing valuable support for an essential segment of the state's economy; the manufacturing industry employs nearly 875,000 Texans and ranks highest in the nation for manufacturing exports and shipment value; attracted by the 'Texas Wide Open for Business' campaign. Many companies continue to relocate to the Lone Star State for its business-friendly environment and proven record of growth in a wide range of industries, including aerospace, health care, technology, and transportation," says Bill Zedler, Texas State Representative.
"It is our quest to help Texas manufacturers and all Texas businesses by driving profitability, growth, and enjoyment from business. We are excited to receive this acknowledgment from the great State of Texas," says Jim Ratchford, Executive Director of the Texas Consilium.
By bringing together highly experienced executives and professionals to work toward a common goal, the Texas Consilium is helping to bolster a crucial component of our state's economy, creating more jobs and greater prosperity for Texas residents. The Texas Consilium has made significant contributions to the state's economy, and the Resolution extends "sincere best wishes for continued success."
