Lubbock Economic Development Alliance Announces 187 New Jobs in Lubbock


187 new jobs will be created in Lubbock, as five businesses announce their expansion, and two new businesses will be moving into the Hub City.

The new positions were announced by the Lubbock Economic Development Alliance Monday.

The expansion projects include Supply Chain Management, Inc., Research and Testing Laboratory, PathoGenius Laboratory, Raw Oil & Gas, Inc. and Covenant Health System.

Covenant Health System, which is a member of St. Joseph Health System, is moving the California Patient Financial Services Operations Unit to Lubbock, and the 84 new positions created will add annual salaries of more than $2 million.

The two relocation projects are Michelin Tires, which will create eight jobs at a new distribution center, and Quality Buildings, a portable building manufacturer, will create 33 new jobs with annual salaries of more than $1 million.

“Lubbock’s location and ongoing growth made it the right choice for us as our first expansion venture in Texas,” said Steve Merrill, sales manager of Quality Buildings, Inc. “The LEDA team has been and continues to be instrumental in helping grow our services and capabilities in an area that complements our line of business.”

According to LEDA, the jobs created from these projects equal more than $7 million in incented salaries, with a capital investment of more than $1.2 million.
