About REDCO 

Organizational History

REDCO participated in several economic development activities in the formative stages of the organization that met with much success in providing the citizens of Williamson County and the surrounding areas with good-paying manufacturing-type jobs. The board recognized early on that real economic growth generates additional jobs in its wake. For example, estimates are that every manufacturing job created in the area can be expected to generate anywhere from 4 to 7 additional jobs in related or service-type industries. To that end, REDCO focused on establishing conditions and building relationships that would generate additional economic opportunities.
