The region contains three metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs): the Midland MSA, the Odessa MSA, and the San Angelo MSA. Major business clusters in the region include energy, manufacturing, transportation, and related distribution. Major employers include Bobby Cox Companies, Halliburton, Investment Corporation of America, Keane Group, Saulsbury Companies, Telvista, Ethicon, Hirschfeld Industries, Lone Star Beef Processing and Weatherford. If the region were a state, it would have the nation’s fifth-highest per capita income. Its high concentration of industries revolving primarily around the extraction and transportation of oil and gas differentiates the West Texas region from others in Texas.
