With convenient access to US Hwy 259 and Interstate 20, Tractor Supply can easily serve retail locations in Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas. “Transportation costs are a key factor when selecting a new distribution or mixing center and Longview was a great choice given our central location to Tractor Supply’s store fronts” said Joe Bob Joyce, President of the Longview Economic Development Corporation.  “Companies have multiple options for each expansion, so I’m glad that we were able to locate them here in Longview” Joe Bob added.

“Tractor Supply Company is pleased to be opening a regional mixing center in the City of Longview to support our existing distribution capabilities in the Southwest,” said Greg Sandfort, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tractor Supply Company. “We appreciate the city’s support in working with us as we developed this facility, which we believe will assist Tractor Supply in our efforts to be the most dependable supplier of basic maintenance products to farm, ranch and rural customers across the country.”
