Business & Economy

The Midland Development Corporation was created in January 2002 to promoting business expansion, job creation and capital investment to diversify and strengthen the Midland, Texas, economy. We do so by offering incentives to qualified new and existing employers who create jobs for the community. Midland voters made these incentives possible when they approved a quarter-cent increase in the local sales tax rate, with additional revenues earmarked to promote economic development and diversification.

Business Diversification

With our location in the Permian Basin, Midland’s economy has been heavily influenced by the oil and gas industry. Our economy has diversified and now Midland is home to a growing number of aerospace, distribution, and business service companies, in addition to many family-owned businesses.

Assistance is Available

The MDC is here to support local businesses looking to grow and those interested in relocating to our area.
