Economic Development

Ingleside, Texas is the hub of the Coastal Bend area, nestled on the La Quinta Ship Channel.  While considered “rural”, we are home to large industry partners Kiewit Offshore Services, Helix Energy, Signet Maritime, Gulf Marine Fabricators, OxyChem, Voestalpine and other big players in the international business arena.

Ingleside, Texas is located just 15 minutes north of metropolitan Corpus Christi, and just across the ship channel from the Port of Corpus Christi, the worlds sixth largest Port.  We’ve had some notable successes – such as having been the proud birthplace of Thunder Horse, one of the largest offshore platform rigs of its kind.  We are the crossroads where cutting-edge technology and world class industrial practice meet a small, hometown community filled with charm and quality of life.
