Industry in Texas
Texas isn’t usually the first state that comes to mind when we think about iron and steel manufacturing, yet our state is actually home to dozens of facilities that employ thousands of hard-working Texans and send millions in tax revenue to our state’s coffers.
The Texas Iron and Steel Industry….
- Supplies well-paying middle class jobs: the average salary per employee is $50,000 before benefits.
- Supports an additional 68,000+ jobs in our state.
- Sends millions of dollars of tax revenue to our state coffers and local communities.
- Serves as the state’s number one recycler.
