For the eighth year in a row, the Pflugerville Community Development Corp. has received an economic excellence award from a state entity.

The Texas Economic Development Council awarded the PCDC with its Economic Excellence award for 2021, according to a Feb. 28 news release.


The release states the TEDC's Economic Excellence Recognition program honors economic development organizations that meet a desired threshold of professionalism, and the PCDC is one of 57 communities to receive the certificate statewide out of 875 that were eligible in 2021.

“It is an honor for our board and staff to be recognized for the eighth year in a row by our economic development statewide organization for PCDC’s continued focus on higher standards of excellence,” PCDC Executive Director Amy Madison said in the release. “It not only sets us apart but clearly demonstrates our commitment to responsible economic growth and development.”

Recent economic incentive deals brokered through the PCDC include a 250,000-square-foot facility for wine and spirits distributor Republic National Distributing Co. as well as an expansion of manufacturing company Cumberland Additive Inc.
