“Encore Wire has been an instrumental member of the McKinney community for more than 20 years, and we are proud that they call McKinney home,” said McKinney Mayor Brian Loughmiller.
Encore Wire employs approximately 1,000 workers and will be adding approximately 100 more jobs once the aluminum plant expansion is completed.
The Texas Workforce Commission started the Texas Manufacturing Star award program in order to identify remarkable success stories within its community.
