TEXAS - Site Selection Magazine has crowned Texas the winner of their Governor’s Cup for 2013. The award is given annually to the state with the most new and expanded corporate facilities announced over the year, and 2013 is the fifth time Texas has won the award under Governor Rick Perry's leadership.

Texas previously won the Governor’s Cup in 2004, 2005, 2010 and 2012. Texas had 657 qualifying projects in 2013.

Ohio finished second with 480 qualifying projects. A qualifying project had to have a capital investment of at least $1 million, must create 50 or more jobs or have 20,000 sf or more of new construction.

“States are the laboratories of innovation, and Texas continues to be a beacon of opportunity for job creators and entrepreneurs,” said Governor Perry. “Over the past 12 years, we’ve built a strong foundation for the future of this state with our low taxes, smart regulation, fair courts and skilled workers. Companies nationally and internationally know that Texas works, and is the best place to live, work, raise a family and own a business.”
