With ample, affordable space, a ready infrastructure, a prime location along major transportation routes, the support of a business-friendly local government and a skilled workforce, the Boerne/Kendall County area is ideally suited for high-tech and light manufacturing companies.
That’s why New York-based AJW Architectural Products chose Comfort in Kendall County for the construction of a manufacturing facility after several months of searching sites throughout Texas. Started construction in 2015, their new facility offers 150,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing, office and warehouse space for the 120 employees, with room for future expansion. A manufacturer of washroom accessories and partitions, metal lockers and visual display products, AJW has provided products for clients including the Pentagon, major league sports venues and other high-profile projects.
“The rural setting of Comfort, the affordable property with infrastructure readily available, the people and businesses of the area with a ‘can-do’ attitude, plus the assistance of the Boerne/Kendall County Economic Development Corporation (BKCEDC) made the decision easy for us to select Kendall County and the Comfort site,” said AJW COO John Nichols.
From its state-of-the-art Headquarters facility in Boerne, Texas Star Nut and Food uses the latest technology and equipment to provide wholesale and bulk nuts and fruits for the grocery industry as well as restaurants, bakeries, ice cream parlors and consumers.
