Abatement Approved For Longview Jobs Expansion

A decision by Gregg County officials yesterday means hundreds of new jobs are coming to Longview. Gregg County Commissioners signed on to a tax abatement agreement yesterday that paves the way for the Trinity Tank Car company to bring at least 250 to 300 new jobs to Longview.

The company already employs 714 people. It plans to build a 73- thousand square foot factory in Longview by the end of the year. That's when Trinity plans to add those new jobs.
