The City of Rockwall serves as the county seat for Rockwall County, the smallest county by land area of all 254 counties in Texas. When it comes to our town, the old idiom rings true, good things come in small packages! Here’s more info on where we are and how to get here.
Just 23 miles east of Dallas, on the shores and hills overlooking Lake Ray Hubbard – a beautiful 23,000-acre lake that doubles as a reservoir and recreational amenity – Rockwall is ideally located to meet the needs of your business and family. Our connectivity to the DFW Metroplex via Interstate 30 and other highways can provide your company access to the workforce talent, supplier, and customer base that comes from a growing metropolitan area that just surpassed 8 million people. However, our unique lake-front living creates a cathartic environment that is light on stress and heavy on amenities.

“Doing business in Rockwall and North Central Texas is great for several reasons. First and foremost is the talent pool in which we get to draw. Secondly, the community, schools, and businesses work closely together for the benefit of each other and finally, the quality of life for all of us that work at SPM. Rockwall is an excellent location because of Interstate 30 providing regional access and close proximity to our suppliers and customers.”
“When I came to Texas, I felt this Texas pride. People here, they want to support domestic and local manufacturing and the local manufacturers want to support the local community… In California, it took us five years to build what we have right now. But in Texas, it will only take 12 months to surpass what we’re currently doing in California. I foresee our manufacturing capability will be three times what we’re currently doing in California.”
“The EDC (in Rockwall) has really gone a lot further than what any other EDC would have done. They’ve really made a commitment to help us grow and made a commitment to be there for us… I really believe that it was the perfect decision, coming here to Rockwall. It was a lot better than what we ever thought it would be.”
“The hidden benefit we didn’t recognize initially when we scouted out the territory was really how great the skilled, hourly workforce was going to be. We didn’t realize how good it would be… I’ve worked in twelve manufacturing facilities in corrugated and this is by far the best group I’ve ever had.”
