Set for completion at the end of 2021, Tesla’s new, Austin-area factory has increased the demand for automotive manufacturing. Kyle is located 30 miles from the new Giga factory, easily accessible from I-35, allowing for the easy distribution of goods. Hays CISD also offers specialized CTE programs, including a state-of-the-art Automotive Technology Center.
Austin has recently experienced tremendous growth in the semiconductor industry. Kyle, as part of the thriving Texas Innovation Corridor, has also become a desirable manufacturing location. In 2019, South Koren-based ENF Technologies broke ground in Kyle on their new, $45 million U.S. headquarters. The 100,000 square-foot facility makes electronics for Samsung Austin Semiconductor, GlobalFoundries, Micron, Texas Instruments, and Intel.
Medical Equipment & Supply Manufacturing
Since the groundbreaking of Ascension Seton Hays Hospital in 2007, Kyle continues to grow as a medical hub for the South Austin region. The hospital is a catalyst for medical development in Kyle, and brought with it almost 2 million additional square feet of newly constructed medical facilities and over 2,000 direct medical jobs, not counting physicians or specialists.
This boom in Kyle’s medical industry creates a high demand for medical equipment and supply manufacturing.
