Allstate Insurance Co. will be expanding employment at its Irving facility.

Gov. Greg Abbott today announced the expansion that will create 1,300 jobs and $11 million in capital investment. A Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF) grant of $2,600,000 has been extended to Allstate Insurance Company, according to Abbott’s office.

“Allstate is one of the largest and most recognizable insurance providers in the nation, and I am grateful for its continued investment in the Lone Star State,” said Abbott. “Allstate’s expansion in Irving is more than a capital investment, it is an investment in this community—one that will create more jobs and spur economic growth. With our talented workforce and business-friendly climate, companies like Allstate have the opportunity help write Texas’ economic success story.”

“Irving’s healthy business climate allows the Irving Economic Development Partnership to retain valuable global companies while also attracting a talented workforce. Allstate’s decision to expand its presence is another example of the incredible momentum Irving-Las Colinas continues to experience as a hub for corporate business headquarters and corporate talent,” said Beth Bowman, president and CEO of the Greater Irving-Las Colinas Chamber of Commerce and Irving Economic Development Partnership.

Founded in 1931, Allstate is one of the largest insurance providers in the United States.

“We appreciate the partnership with the City of Irving as well as with the State of Texas,” said Greg Burns, senior vice president Human Resources, Allstate. “We’re excited to expand our presence in the Irving area as we provide the best service to customers, develop talent and serve the community.”

Allstate is listed as one of the top employers in Irving and has its Texas Regional office at 8676 Freeport Parkway North in the city.
