McKinney offers not only an upscale lifestyle but also an exceptional business environment. The economy is diverse and offers a mix of industry, including:
The city has attracted companies like Raytheon, Wistron GreenTech, Torchmark, Emerson Process Management, Tong Yang, Simpson Strong-Tie, Tenant Tracker, Manner Plastics and Traxxas. Home-grown companies like Encore Wire, Newtoy (now Zynga), RMCN and Brandon Industries have also thrived here. McKinney has led in sustainable developments and its historic business district is one of the largest and most successful in the state.
Businesses move to McKinney for a number of reasons, including a great education system, a large and qualified talent pool and a relatively low cost of living. Programs at the state and local level are inherently pro-business. Economic development is a central component to our city’s strategic plan.
