Data Centers & Technology

Forney’s location in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex provides access to a labor pool of over 1.3 million people within 35 minutes of our community.  This skilled base includes emerging growth in the technology sector.  Further, our area’s technology workforce index of 6.2 ensures your company will find well-trained, experienced employees.  Recent studies have shown the Dallas-Fort Worth area consistently ranked as one of the best locations in the country for data centers.  Forney’s location 23 miles from the headquarters of semiconductor giant Texas Instruments, 24 miles from the Downtown Dallas Infomart interconnect hub and 27 miles from the telecom corridor north of Dallas, make it a prime destination for technology storage and high tech manufacturing operations.

Forney provides access to a robust potential of infrastructure to serve these operations.  This includes dual feed electric service, a large availability of water, fiber optics and related services.  More information on utilities is available here.
