Samsung Semiconductor Plant in Taylor a Game-Changer for Regional Economy

November 23, 2021

The following can be attributed to Tony Bennett, president & CEO of the Texas Association of Manufacturers:

“The new Samsung semiconductor plant will invigorate this region’s economy and generate tremendous opportunities for this community for generations to come. The project will create thousands of high-quality jobs, generate millions of dollars in state and local tax revenue every year, and attract additional vendors and suppliers that will want to locate near the Samsung facility – creating multiple more jobs and added tax wealth to ripple through the region’s economy. Global competition is steep for advanced manufacturing projects of this caliber and the City of Taylor and Williamson County have certainly achieved a most-coveted prize. Congratulations to the community, and to Samsung, for making this huge opportunity a reality.”
