Unmatched Natural Resources


In the Salinas Valley, companies have the ability to leverage the region’s bountiful natural resources, including fertile soil and an ideal growing climate – all in Northern California’s innovation environment. The city offers opportunities for businesses operating in nearly every aspect of agriculture - from food safety and security to nutraceuticals and research, from production and processing to farm management and machinery - and everything in between.

But Salinas also offers far more than just fields and farms. High tech companies, including Inc. 5,000 business Alvarez Technology Group, and manufacturing firms, such as Cal Pacific Airmotive, are also finding success here. Join us as we build the smart farms of the future - and foster other high potential and high-tech industry sectors, such as:
  • Wine industry packaging and manufacturing, related to the burgeoning number of vineyards in the region (Monterey was named a “Top 10 Wine Travel Destination” in 2013 by Wine Enthusiast magazine);
  • Auto and motorcycle manufacturing, testing, R & D and assembly, related to the nearby Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca racetrack;
  • Spanish-language film production and bilingual calling, service and marketing centers;
  • Cyber security with several military and public institutes in nearby Monterey, such as the Panetta Institute for Public Policy, the Naval Postgraduate School, and the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center;
  • Plastics packaging and research, related to the produce industry; and
  • Financial management.
