More Than Just Natural Beauty
Cedar Hill may make headlines because of its natural beauty, stunning hiking (some of the best trails in the DFW area are right here), and activities in the great outdoors, but the city is excellent for business as well. Companies headquartered in Dallas find the stunning vistas, charming shopping districts, and friendly atmosphere of Cedar Hill makes it an ideal location for industrial, warehouse, or satellite locations.
The well designed and equipped Cedar Hill Business Park is located on the BNSF rail line, with easy access to SH 67, and features a variety of successful businesses already in place. The City of Cedar Hill continues to be a top destination for brands looking for an industrial opportunity in Dallas and the surrounding area. Brands from a variety of industries have chosen Cedar Hill Business Park for their manufacturing, office, and warehousing needs, including:
- Dallas Aeronautical Services: A leading provider of services for commercial and corporate airlines, this thriving brand offers repair, aftermarket, and other services for airlines, right here in Cedar Hill.
- Delta Steel: Cedar Hill Business Park is home to Delta Steel, one of the biggest professional service centers in the Southern United States. The brand has a rich history spanning five decades and partners with many other organizations, providing materials, steel, and pre-production processing for some of the best-known businesses in the nation.
- PepWear: Cedar Hill Business Park was a natural match for PepWear, a producer and online seller of graphic t-shirts. The brand has been creating and selling colorful and lasting shirts for over two decades. When they realized they were running out of space (their production needs include large screen printing machines and a large production and design space) they turned to the Cedar Hill Business Park.
"We do need a lot of space for the printing,” Myers expanded. “We have four screen printing stations, and they’re huge massive machines. And we need space to store all the apparel. We have to keep a large backstock of apparel on hand.”
PepWear doesn’t need a storefront; their sales occur online; this e-commerce brand needs to be able to act swiftly and seamlessly to fulfill orders and ships items to destinations around the world. Cedar Hill Business Park’s central location and easy access to shipping routes, highways and banking made it a natural match for PepWear.
“While space was the primary need for PepWear, Johnson had other concerns as well. A lot of places offer space, but Cedar Hill offered more that made this particular space enticing. He noted its access to major highways, an abundance of restaurant and shopping options for employees, and clean neighborhoods.”
