Investor Spotlight: Port San Antonio

The Port is one of the San Antonio region’s most valuable community assets when it comes to attracting and retaining innovative employers. The Port’s 80 tenants employ over 13,000 San Antonians working in IT, cybersecurity, defense, manufacturing, energy, and global logistics.

The Port is developing into the San Antonio region’s premier technology and innovation hub. In recent months, the Port has announced more than 2,000 new jobs from companies like Boeing, StandardAero, IPSecure, and CACI, among several others. There is significant momentum building as the Port continues to develop innovative space for IT and cyber operations, attract new employers and support the growth of its existing tenants.

Amazing things are made in S.A., especially at the Port’s campus. This summer, Boeing announced it will almost double its workforce at Port San Antonio. This includes adding approximately 500 jobs to support the modernization of U.S. Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet fleet at the company’s large complex at the Port. Boeing San Antonio will work on an estimated 500 jets over the next 10-15 years. This represents the first fighter jet work to be done in the State of Texas.

A few short years after IPSecure doubled its footprint at Port San Antonio and committed to hiring 80 new employees, the cybersecurity company opened its third cyber operation at the Port. The new facility will provide ample meeting and classroom space for IPSecure to use as it collaborates with private- and defense-sector information security professionals and clients.

Most recently, the Port celebrated the grand opening of its newest cybersecurity tenant, CACI—a global information security company. CACI will use the new 8,000-square-foot Port San Antonio facility to collaborate with the U.S. Air Force and other government customers in the region to provide research and development of full-spectrum cybersecurity and cyberspace solutions. Over the next five years, CACI expects to hire additional cyber professionals, including software and systems engineers, cyber architects, intelligence analysts, and others, in the San Antonio area to meet the growing demand for cyber-related technologies.

The San Antonio community’s unique ability to collaborate among industry, education, and military is a competitive advantage. The Port is a prime example of those resources collaborating in action.
