“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 Governor 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.”
