/ Target Industries / Manufacturing


Manufacturing is a dominant force in our area where companies produce everything from aerospace technology to oil field equipment. Sterling Lumber Company, a manufacturer that makes timber mats, is planning to open a new plant in Lufkin in 2019. The company is investing $30 million and creating 150 jobs.

Lufkin’s manufacturing industry has a major impact on the region’s local economy. The city’s access to a massive amount of surplus water – 65.5 million gallons/day – allows manufacturers to rely on the natural resource that are crucial to maintaining day-to-day functions.
