  • There is now a roadway in Texas officially named Samsung Highway.
  • The highway was partially paid for by Samsung to better connect its Texas manufacturing plants to the surrounding populace.
  • Samsung and Texas Governor Greg Abbott had a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, June 7.

Samsung might be a South Korean company, but it has manufacturing facilities, office buildings, and more infrastructure all over the world. One place where it has developed a sizable presence is Texas. In the Lone Star State, Samsung has invested over $40 billion in creating a manufacturing plant — the largest-ever foreign investment in Texas’ history.

On June 7, Samsung, Texas Governor Greg Abbott, and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) officially opened “Samsung Highway,” a stretch of road that connects the manufacturing buildings with the surrounding areas (h/t SamMobile). This will better allow employees, contractors, and officials to get to and from Samsung’s buildings daily.
