Port Lavaca: Local Job Market

 

One of the most important things to consider when looking to move into a new area is whether or not you will have a good chance of securig employment prior to or upon arrival. Here are some things to keep in mind when deciding whether or not buying a home in Port Lavaca is a viable option for you, your family, and your business. The industry here in Calhoun County is constantly growing  as the city of Port Lavaca is centrally located between several large manufacturing facilities including Alcoa, Formosa Plastics, and DuPont where many Port Lavaca residents work. The fishing, shrimping and oystering industry is very strong in our area. The Port Lavaca Port Authority has made great strides over the years to grow and expand the importation and exportation of goods by sea, and has continually provided industry with incentives to remain here locally. Agriculture is also a very strong factor in our local economy, and its presence is evident by the large tracts of farm land that line our county roads.
