While Seminole is a fast growing place it still maintains a community feel, a place where new families are welcomed to their neighborhood, a place where the clerk at the corner store calls you by name.

Gaines County continues to be the number one oil-producing county in Texas, the number one cotton-producing county in Texas, and the number one peanut producing county in Texas.

Considering these factors and the large pool of skilled and semi-skilled labor available, along with several good industrial sites, we feel that Seminole is an ideal location to consider if you are planning to expand your business or begin a new one.

The entire community is ready and eager to work with anyone interested in locating in this area.
