The Austin branch of Western Industries Corp. (WIC) announced plans to relocate to Hutto, TX. The manufacturing company will take space at Titan Development’s 72-acre Innovation Park, with plans to lease 79,000 square feet. WIC will move into its new location on Schneider Boulevard by mid-summer 2019.
WIC will invest more than $3 million in the facility, with plans to expand its workforce from 75 to 145. The Hutto City Council approved a 10-year, 20% ad valorem property tax abatement to the company.
Other Austin-area companies announcing relocations to Hutto in the past year include Paradigm Metals and BryComm. WIC has had an Austin-area presence for 25 years, and also operates manufacturing facilities in Dallas, Wichita, KS and Reynosa, Mexico.
