McALLEN – Developers and manufacturers hope to create a research and education hub here focusing on rapidly turning ideas into products.
Master planning is under way for a research and education park in South McAllen that will have facilities to research and develop products using resources such as technology, students and programs from South Texas College and the University of Texas-Pan American.
The hope is that talented graduates will stay in the area to work at the park instead of moving out of the Rio Grande Valley, said Keith Patridge, the president and CEO of the McAllen Economic Development Corp.
Organizers also want the park to attract companies to nearby plants in Reynosa and other parts of Mexico as well as bring new businesses to the Rio Grande Valley.
