The Santa Clarita Valley is home to businesses across a number of diverse industries, many of which chose this location to address a few common needs that arise for any growing company. Two such companies, AMS Fulfillment and Princess Cruises, chose the SCV because they found the resources they needed to thrive in this area that weren’t available elsewhere. In October, SCVEDC President Holly Schroeder sat down with leaders from both companies to discuss what makes SCV a great location for business.
