A ribbon cutting was held at Jim H. Wilson Company, LLC on Wednesday. Jimco is a railcar dismantling company that began construction in Gonzales in May. The company purchased 32 acres from Texas Gonzales & Northern Railway Company north of Gonzales.

The company currently has 23 employees and they are hoping that number will grow to 30 or more by Spring of 2011. Pictured are (back row, from left): Carlos Herrera with BANG Electric; Jim H.
