Bringing NEW Business to Meridian


The Meridian Economic Development Coporation is dedicated to seeing both existing and new businesses succeed in our community. Meridian, Texas offers a unique opportunity for anyone looking for a place to grow. 

During 2020 Meridian welcomed several new businesses to the area. One in particular was CobraTec Tactical Knives, LLC.

Many people couldn’t help but notice when the empty building off State Highway 6 that was originally a Family Dollar store started to get a facelift. By providing a $30,000 loan, the MEDC was instrumental to the renovations and relocation of CobraTec Tactical Knives, LLC. Where once stood an empty building with blacked-out signs, now houses a profitable business that not only provides additional tax revenue to the area but also job opportunities for local residents.
