"The relocation of D6's headquarters to Sulphur Springs will be a major economic boon to northeast Texas as it brings more jobs, opportunities, and investment to the community," said Governor Abbott. "More and more great companies like D6 are moving to Texas every day because of our welcoming business climate and our young, growing, skilled, and diverse workforce, and I look forward to working alongside D6 and all of our business and community leaders to keep Texas the best place to live, work, and raise a family."

"Sulphur Springs has always been supportive of new industry. D6's headquarters relocation and expansion will boost our local economy and provide growth we support," said Sulphur Springs Mayor John A. Sellers.
