As a Texas Type A Economic Development Corporation, Taylor EDC has limitation of the kinds of businesses and projects it can assist. Most Type A projects must create or retain primary jobs, with some exceptions. A primary job is defined as one that is (1) available at a company for which a majority of the products or services of that company are ultimately exported to regional, statewide, national, or international markets, infusing new dollars into the local economy; and (2) included in one of the sectors of the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) identified by legislation (shown below):
|113||Forestry and Logging|
|115||Support Activities for Agriculture and Forestry|
|211 to 213||Mining|
|311 to 330||Manufacturing|
|48 and 49||Transportation and Warehousing|
|51||Information, excluding movie theaters (51213) and drive-in theaters (512132)|
|523 to 525||Securities, Commodity Contracts, and Other Financial Investments and Related Activities, Insurance Carriers, Related Activities, Funds, Trusts, and Other Financial Vehicles|
|5413,5415,5416,5417, and 5419||Scientific Research and Development Services|
|551||Management of Companies and Enterprises|
|56142||Telephone Call Centers|
Identifying all primary businesses in a community is always a work in progress. The current list of primary businesses within Taylor's ETJ shows 77 primary business. This list, however, may change periodically as businesses come and go and/or change their focus to a NAICS code that is not on the approved list. To provide additional information, make additons, deletions or corrections, please contact email@example.com at the Taylor EDC office.
