SANTA TERESA (AP) — New Mexico continues to attract new business to the Santa Teresa industrial zone on the Mexico border.
Gov. Susana Martinez says three new companies are moving to the area and an existing company is expanding to create 120 new jobs. Her administration has been focused on developing cross-border business in the region, where Union Pacific is building a huge new rail hub for shipping goods around the country.
The three new companies are Ironhorse, a shortline railroad operator; Bizlink, a global manufacturer of cable assemblies and wire harnesses; and Ferza, an El Paso-based transloading firm that will be moving fructose, plastics and other materials for clients using the Santa Teresa Intermodal Park.
Additionally, JH Rose Logistics, a warehousing and transportation, will be adding 20 workers to its Santa Teresa operations.
