Hundreds of jobs could be coming to East Texas.
The Smith County Commissioners Court approved a tax abatement today that would give Astro Machine the incentive to expand its local plant.
The tax abatement allows Astro Machine to move forward with their $9 million expansion plan.
The corporation could bring at least 125 jobs to the area.
Astro Machine makes machinery used in the oil, water, and defense industries.
