The Harlingen Aerotropolis is a 479-acre, shovel-ready site and premier South Texas manufacturing destination adjacent to the Valley International Airport. It has been designated as a Certified Site by McCallum Sweeney Consultants, one of the world’s leading site selection and economic consulting firms.
The Aerotropolis development incorporates a mixed use for the property that includes manufacturing, warehouse, office and retail purposes. In addition, logistics, transportation and other industries will be able to take advantage of its strategic location. The Aerotropolis’ proximity to the Port of Harlingen, the Port of Brownsville, State Highway 550, the Los Indios Free Trade Bridge and the Valley International Airport makes it the ideal location for both local and global manufacturing companies.
The Harlingen Aerotropolis is also home to the new South Texas aerospace cluster. With SpaceX building a new launch facility in Brownsville, and United Launch Alliance building rocket components in Harlingen, the Harlingen Aerotropolis is well-positioned to be the next home for the aeronautical and aerospace industry in South Texas. United Launch Alliance, which is located adjacent to the Aerotropolis, is already a partner of the Valley International Airport.
Dan Collins, Chief Operating Officer with United Launch Alliance, states in regard to locating the business in Harlingen: “We were looking for a place with very high quality workers, with a great cost of doing business and with a community that was very supportive. In Harlingen, we found all three.” Move quote to Stories of Success, ULA?
