The Great Southwest Association is an organization comprised of business owners, individual and institutional property owners, and related companies whose primary business is in the Industrial Parks of both Arlington and Grand Prairie. The general boundaries are the industrial real estate from SH-183 to I-20, and Collins to McArthur.

As a member of GSWIDA, you will be able to voice your concerns for the Industrial Sector and the Industrial Parks to a Board of Directors who will respond to your needs by developing an equitable solution.

During our upcoming calendar year, the Great Southwest Association will be soliciting general membership. The goal is to maximize involvement by each tenant, owner, and investor. Only through the enthusiastic involvement of everyone will this endeavor be successful. For those who make their living in industrial, it is even more important to be involved in this organization. The more involvement the organization garners the stronger our voice and better we become.

The most ambitious goal for the Great Southwest Association is to bring back the integrity and desirability that Angus Wynne and the Great Southwest Corporation founded in 1956. Looking "Back to the Future" is an appropriate phrase to employ here. GSW should look back to what it once was to see where it needs to go in the future. With the help of dedicated individuals and their resources, it's a realistic goal.

The GSWIDA is not a vendor networking organization nor a chamber of commerce

As the central purpose of the Association is to protect the member business, promote the GSW Industrial Park and ensure property values and the quality of the Park remain high, membership lists are not distributed to its members. If you are in search of joining a networking organization, we encourage you to join the Grand Prairie Chamber of Commerce and the Arlington Chamber of Commerce.
