Here, ideas ignite – and key industries emerge
Automotive, Aerospace and Medical Device Manufacturing. Data Centers. Renewable Energy and Sustainable industries (food production, water stewardship, solar & wind power), Transportation & Logistics. These are just a few of the many industries that consider El Paso – a place where great minds come together to rethink, rework and reshape the way we live. Here, technology has been a driving force to economic expansion.
There is no other border economy that has so many specialties in trade and logistics.
Professional, scientific and technical services account for 20 percent of employment in the county. Other key industries rely on El Paso's large pool of management, professional and skilled workers. And it is a young workforce: One-half of the county’s professional and technical jobs are held by young adults ages 19 to 34.
We’re also home to innovative startups, hundreds of companies from other countries, and a vibrant minority business community anxious to help new businesses become successful in the greater El Paso metro.
