Pampa (EDC)

Pampa is one of the largest cities in the Texas Panhandle with big beautiful skies and breathtaking sunsets. With over 300 days of sunshine annually Pampa is where people want to be. Utilizing our natural resources we are pursuing a diverse economic future for Pampa Texas. Come see for yourself and enjoy our excellent environment, attractive and affordable lifestyle and great amenities. Just like our ‘Friendly Pampa People” our doors are always open and our coffee is hot.

The Mission of the Pampa EDC is to encourage and promote industries of the community by directing attention to opportunities within the industrial, commercial, and agricultural sectors. We will strive to assist with needed resources and financial incentives to interested firms and entrepreneurs in startup, expansion or relocation to this area. The success of this mission will be demonstrated by sustained stability and growth of economic activity in Pampa.

Pampa, Tx. is located in the eastern Texas Panhandle approximately 55 miles northeast of Amarillo, Tx. We are centrally located in the U.S. at the crossroads of U.S. HWY 60 and Texas HWY 70. Texas HWY 152 also crosses through Pampa and I-40 is only twenty minutes to the south intersecting with HWY 70. In addition, we are on the main east west BNSF Rail line between Chicago and Los Angeles. This rail line serves the Pampa EDC industrial park, Pampa Energy Center.

Due to Pampa’s location and natural resources, we have a very diversified economy with additional economic diversification welcome. This diversification includes the following industries:

  • Agriculture
  • Distribution
  • Manufacturing
  • Oil & Gas
  • Transportation
  • Wind Energy
  • Healthcare
  • Education
  • Retail

Currently, Pampa is home to two wind energy related companies, Keystone Tower Systems manufacturing wind turbine towers through a special patented process and RenewTest, which provides testing for small to mid-size wind turbines. We are very interested in recruiting more wind energy and other green businesses to our local economy.

Pampa is a dynamic community of approximately 17,000 residents with a desire for continued growth and development. We believe that this can be accomplished in a number of ways including the retention and expansion of our local companies as well as the recruitment of new business and industry. This is an exciting time to be a part of the expanding Pampa and Gray County community. The Pampa EDC is a Type B economic development corporation eager to continue utilizing our resources for both economic and community development projects.
