Greater Yuma is a dynamic region located at the epicenter of four states and two countries. Our unique location allows for international and southwest markets to be served in a single day truck haul. Growing companies needing a dedicated skilled workforce and easy access to their customers and supply source have found the Greater Yuma Region to be the answer to all of their wants and needs. 

Consider all of us at Greater Yuma EDC an extension of your team.  We are your arbitrator with all local and state public agencies.  We are Grantee of Foreign Trade (FTZ) 219 and will partner with you to obtain FTZ status if applicable.  We are prepared for every size project.

Let us serve you in your expansion and/or relocation needs.  Greater Yuma EDC offers you a one stop shop for corporate site selection data, economic/demographic research trends and quality of life information along with a fully interactive GIS Site Locator tool that will guide you in locating the ideal real estate option.

Many companies chose Yuma County as the place to grow their business.  Their success is evidenced by their continued growth in this market.  We invite you to visit Yuma and meet the Managers of General Motors, Johnson Controls, Shaw Diversified, Associated Materials, Northwestern Industries, International Paper, Gowan Company and Datepac to glean first hand why they are thriving in Yuma County.

Thank you for your interest in the greater Yuma Region and I look forward to meeting you.
