A Strategic, Southwestern Location

Sun Corridor Inc. puts a critical business focus on one of the most dynamic and fastest-growing major business centers in the U.S.: Tucson and Southern Arizona, including Cochise County, Santa Cruz County, Pima County and Pinal County.

The collective assets of Southern Arizona, combined with Mexico’s economic growth, lead to a strategic location and unique competitive strength for business growth and development found nowhere else.  The Southern Arizona/Sonoran region, with a total population of 1.59 million, is a binational, world-class center in integrated research, manufacturing and supply chain strength.

The Tucson MSA serves a market of 45 million people within a 500-mile radius. In terms of geography, it lies within 415 miles of Southern California population centers and within 64 miles of the Mexican border, Arizona’s largest trade partner.

Proximity to the I-10 / I-8 (east/west) and I-19 (north/south) interstate highway system provides timely access to suppliers and markets in other southern states. Additionally in Southern Arizona four international ports of entry, the region’s rail/truck intermodal (Port of Tucson), 11 general aviation airports across several counties and Tucson’s international airport facilities provide supplementary, highly-efficient methods for people and product movement.

Southern Arizona is blessed with warm weather, lots of sunshine and very few natural disasters. The stable climate is ideal for many types of business systems and testing environments.  Fertile agricultural land means a year-round growing season.

Businesses regard Southern Arizona as an emerging location of choice for many important reasons including:

  • A diverse workforce and skill set availability
  • No corporate inventory tax
  • Arizona’s designation as a right to work state
  • Focused incentives for jobs and capital investment
  • Congressional delegation focused on the State of Arizona’s long-term needs
  • Availability and affordability of land, water and electricity
  • Competitive operational and payroll costs
