Targeted Industries

As nearby Austin, Texas continues to grow, Copperas Cove’s economic development and population growth have been favorably impacted. 

As companies search for cities in Texas with lower costs but still have easy access to major cities, Copperas Cove stands out as a great choice to expand or relocate. With a convenient location on I-14 neighboring Fort Cavazos (the largest military installation in Texas,) Copperas Cove, Texas is a prime location for several industries including:

  • Healthcare

  • Defense / Cyber Security

  • Supply Chain Logistics

  • Advanced Manufacturing

These industries also benefit from the workforce pipeline established in the Greater Fort Cavazos area, starting at the high school level. The Copperas Cove High School’s CTE program offers several industry based certifications in these areas. Central Texas College and Texas A&M - Central Texas offer the next level of education within 15 miles of Copperas Cove. In addition, 500+ soldiers at Fort Cavazos exit military service monthly and enter the public workforce with experience and industry useful knowledge.
