Aerospace and Defense Industry in the Santa Clarita Valley
Aerospace and Defense industry in the Santa Clarita Valley
The Aerospace and Defense industry is one of the key industry clusters in the Santa Clarita Valley (SCV), involving organizations focusing on aerospace product and parts manufacturing, space research and technology and national security and international affairs. It’s supported by an Industry Coalition made up of a strong network of SCV businesses that meet quarterly. As noted by Holly Schroeder, CEO and President of the Santa Clarita Economic Development Corporation (SCVEDC) during a recent interview with elite Magazine, “The ‘clustering’ of businesses can enhance the competitive advantage of a region by fueling competition in the local economy, which often leads to quality job creation.1” And that attracts more great talent – yet another reason for businesses to choose to locate in the SCV.
The SCVEDC strives to support growth of the aerospace and defense industry in the SCV, working to ensure that organizations take advantage of the unique training infrastructure and the presence of many networking and support programs – not to mention the SCV’s ideal location between the City of Palmdale, Edwards AFB and centers of military research with access to the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach and foreign trade zones in the SCV.

Jeff Lage, Vice President at B & B Manufacturing Company said, “What a great place for Aerospace. We are rich with labor within a reasonable commute. SCV is located in a geographically friendly area from our proximity to major airports to our supply chain resources – it is all within our reach. I can’t think of a more favorable location that offers so much. I have lived, worked and played in Santa Clarita since 1969; what an exciting place to be, work and enjoy.”
