HOOKS, Texas—TexAmericas Center recently brought aboard its 32nd tenant business, which is looking for about 20 employees.

Last month, Plymouth, Mich.-based Loc Performance Product agreed to lease 12,000 square feet of warehouse space, which will allow the company to receive and process military parts to the Red River Army Depot.

The parts, which will be forwarded from the center's warehouse to the depot, will be delivered in kits or crates starting in the fall, said Brent Williams, the company's vice president for sales and marketing.

Williams said that by the fall, the company hopes to hire about 20 local residents to work on processing the parts, which primarily will be used to assemble Multiple Launch Rocket Systems Vehicles at the depot.

Williams said the company hopes to keep the lease for at least five years.

Eric Voyles, executive vice president and chief economic development officer at TexAmericas, said the lease not only can be extended, but also expanded.

TexAmericas Center's chief executive officer Scott Norton said Thursday in a news release that he is excited about opportunities that lie ahead for the center's new tenant.

"This is a great addition to the defense industry cluster we have here in the Ark-La-Tex region," Norton said." I would recommend that anyone looking for a great profession take advantage of what Loc is going to bring to our community."
