Located in West Texas; just south of the panhandle, you will find the Texas city of Andrews. The city was founded in 1937. It and the county of the same name was named after Richard Andrews – an Indian soldier who was the first and only Texan to die in the American Revolution.
Like many Texas cities, oil has been a big resource of the city since 1929 when the first oil well was drilled. It has produced more than a billion barrels. However, industry instability and depletion has forced the city to seek economic recovery in other industries such as waste disposal. Andrews is home to two radioactive waste landfills owned by a Dallas based company. The company employs 1% of the Andrews workforce.
Kirby Company, the well-known vacuum cleaner company, has had a factory in Andrews since 1972. It is the first factory outside of the original Ohio location and is known as the Kirby West. It sustains about 200; jobs surpassing that of the waste industry. The opening of business parks to attract businesses and jobs has also been a key strategy of diversification to reduce the reliance on oil.
