Nebraska and Texas win Governor's Cup awards for investment

Posted by Gino DiCaro, VP, Communications on March 19, 2017

Site Selection magazine released their Governor’s Cup edition this week.  It reflects yearly capital investment project totals and awards a state for most projects and most projects per capita. 

Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts joins the elite club of governors to claim a Site Selection Governor’s Cup, by virtue of his state winning the Cup for most capital investment projects per capita (101 such projects for 2016 = 53.7 per 1 million people). 

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott claims his third Governor’s Cup for total qualified projects (642), and the State’s fifth consecutive such Cup. Texas’ winning streak began in 2009. Rounding out the top five in this category are Illinois, North Carolina (289) and Georgia (271). 

California ranked in the top 10 of total projects at 250 but only attracted 6.4 projects per 1 million people. We at CMTA have purchased the underlying data so we can report at a later date on the number of specific manufacturing investments per capita vs. the rest of the country.
