Ever wonder how stuff is made? Come see how Komatsu builds the world's largest front end loader, how Eastman turns chemicals into products, how Neiman Marcus distributes goods, and other cool technology. Join us for Big Techs, the behind-the-scene tours of what makes Longview Texas work.

Longview’s history and present are full of makers, builders, doers, and inventors. Ever since Longview was founded as a railroad town in 1870, industrious people have been making cool stuff in our corner of East Texas. That industrious culture grew with the East Texas Oil Boom of the 1930’s and the manufacturing necessity of World War II. Today, Longview companies continue that tradition, using modern technology to create, build, and distribute goods.The Big Techs event is a chance to peek behind-the-scenes at the amazing technology that makes Longview work. As part of Industry Appreciation, Big Techs is a collaborative effort of the Longview Economic Development Corporation and the Longview Convention and Visitors Bureau.
