Cat to build engines in Texas

Seguin, just east of San Antonio has been chosen as the location for the new facility to build truck, marine and electric power engines. The plant will cover 1-million square feet and employ up to 1,400 people. Seguin beat out Greenville, South Carolina, Montgomery, Alabama and a city in Mexico for the facility–probably due in large part to it’s excellent transportation access. Seguin is on I-10 and just a few miles from I-35. And the I-35 corridor around San Antonio will play a major part in the $184-billion Trans Texas Corridor superhighway project…if that ever gets built.
