- Site Selection Magazine updated its review of the most competitive US and global cities. Their review was based on economic data, surveys of site selection professionals, and the scale of local investments.
- While Chicago edged out DFW for the top domestic spot this year, the Metroplex still scored at the top of the US markets, with 10 of the 12 industry sectors being ranked in the top 5.
This level of “competitiveness” is not a surprise when you consider that DFW has a large and growing base of Fortune 1,000 headquarters – that are well represented across these industries (currently 46 call DFW home).
- In addition, DFW boasts numerous companies across these sectors that have a strong presence, even though they might not be headquartered locally, such as JPMorgan Chase and Capital One to Hewlett Packard and NTT Data to Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, and Bell Helicopter.
