The airport is ready for business. The first commercial business at East Texas Regional Airport in Gregg County is moving in. ARMS Building and Maintenance is a sports floor and turf installation business. It's planning to build a 50,000 square foot building to benefit from the airport's designation as a foreign trade zone.
The airport manager said there are 300 acres at the airport ready for development and each square foot could mean more business and jobs to the East Texas community.
