Why Choose Forney?

Conveniently located just 21 miles from Downtown Dallas

Forney offers quick and easy access to America’s ninth largest city and is closer to Dallas than many other major Dallas-Fort Worth suburbs.

Forney sits along U.S. Highway 80, a major four-lane divided highway and is just 5 miles north of Interstate 20, offering companies a coast-to-coast connection.  The Union Pacific Railroad runs through the heart of Forney and provides businesses with access to the line’s vast network.  Our close proximity to other interstates, highways, loops and international airports provides easy connection to other major cities, states and countries.

Room to Grow with Supporting Infrastructure
