It is indeed a Big Deal for Seguin and the surrounding area. Yesterday the groundbreaking for the Caterpillar engine plant that will be in Seguin was held at the Events Center. There was a huge crowd in attendance to hear Mayor Betty Ann Matthis and guest speakers, Texas Governor Rick Perry, Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst, our own Representant Edmund Kuempel and others.
This is especially good news for Seguin during the financial downturn in the nation. Not only will there be about 1400 jobs available with the presence of Caterpillar, there is optimism about other businesses (existing and new) and opportunities for everyone. It is a big deal!
