Look to future
"We looked at what is coming in the future in the Valley, such as the development of Interstate 69, the planned Hidalgo County Loop, and we already have many customers, contractors, and rock quarries down here that use our equipment," Shedrock said.
The company also plans to service areas inside Mexico from the new facility. Interstate 69 is the planned transformation of several key South Texas highways, including U.S. Expressway 281, to link up with the national interstate system that will allow non-stop direct movement of personal and commercial vehicles between Edinburg, key Mexican cities, and major U.S. cities in northern states.
"What people need to know is that HOLT CAT is a value-based company, that we really believe in doing the right thing at the right time. We really believe in being a good corporate citizen. That means a whole lot to Peter Holt, our owner, that we are a good corporate citizen," Shedrock said. "We want to do the right thing for us and the right thing for everybody around."
