To position Seguin competitively a local incentive package was utilized which included a five year partial property tax abatement from Guadalupe County and a land grant incentive valued at $985,900 from the Seguin Economic Development Corporation.
Over the five year period of the incentive package, the City, County, Lateral Road, and School District are anticipated to receive over $6 million in new property tax revenue, net of the tax abatement.
“We are very fortunate in Seguin to have companies such as Niagara Bottling, LLC recongonize what a great town and community we have and that Seguin is the best choice when considering locating a business” said Mayor Don Keil, “Our dedicated workforce and forward thinking government continues to allow us to be a competitor in location decisions.”

It is a great time to be in Guadalupe County!”
