I

t is an honor and a privilege serving as president of the El Centro Chamber of Commerce. Thank you to all our members for your continued support to make the Chamber such a success. Your support and dedication helps to make the Chamber the success that it is. As we continue to grow the chamber it is wonderful that we have more support from our agricultural community which is so vital for the economic success of the Imperial Valley. I look forward to working with the City of El Centro as we continue to grow the commerce exchange between the City of El Centro and the City of Mexicali in Baja California. Thank you to all who have participated in this directory to make it a success. It’s very encouraging to see the many new members that have joined the El Centro Chamber of Commerce this year. We will once again be hosting an off-Rd. race locally with international participation. The Chamber is also very proud to support and help sponsor the ever popular Blue Angels Air Show each year as well as many other valley-wide events. I hope this directory is helpful and useful to all our visitors as well as the residents of the Imperial Valley.

President’s Welcome 2015-2016

E

l Centro is the county seat of Imperial County and as such anchors a region burgeoning with a variety of local businesses, national stores, agriculture, international commerce and renewable energy. Our valley is a special place for many reasons, from wonderful people to enterprising businesses and, of course, great weather. Though Imperial Valley has diversified greatly since being founded as an agricultural hub more than 100 years ago, we remain true to our heritage even as we look to an exciting future. It is truly an honor to be a part of furthering our success as the 2015-16 president of the El Centro Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau. Our chamber, with its member businesses, generous sponsors and hardworking staff and volunteers, is a leader in supporting and promoting our city and all of Imperial County. If you are already in one of those groups, thank you. If not, I welcome you to become a member and experience the benefits and satisfaction of serving our community. It is an equal honor to present the businesses included in the chamber’s annual directory. They are diverse and represent all El Centro and Imperial County have to offer. Please support them. They are the engines that drive our commerce and with them you find a key component of the great quality of life in El Centro and the surrounding communities of Imperial County. Sincerely,

David Tyler 2015-2016 President El Centro Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau www.elcentrochamber.com | 3

Economic Development

E

l Centro is known as the largest American city which lies entirely below sea level – 39 feet below it, to be exact. It is both the largest city in California’s Imperial County and the county seat. It is located 117 miles east of San Diego in the southeast corner of California, only 15 miles from the border with Mexico’s Baja California and its town of Mexicali. Because of Mexico’s proximity, El Centro has successfully merged the two cultures. Many of the city’s estimated 43,363 residents are of Hispanic descent and speak Spanish as their primary language. The same is true of all of Imperial County’s estimated 179,091 residents. The majority of Imperial County’s jobs, services, housing, recreation, hotels, restaurants and retail outlets are located in El Centro, drawing people from all of the county’s seven cities and Mexicali on a daily basis. “You can create a job anywhere in the County and El Centro will be positively impacted because people who work there will shop in El Centro and many will also choose to live there,” explained Timothy E. Kelley, President & CEO of the Imperial Valley Economic Development Corporation (IVEDC). The residents and businesspeople of El Centro and Imperial County make the most of their area’s unique location, geography and natural resources. For instance, 85 percent of Imperial County land is devoted to agriculture because they count on their year round growing season, allowing them

to plant several lucrative crop cycles each year. Local growers produce winter fruits and vegetables (lettuce, carrots and onions), alfalfa, sugar beets, cotton, grain and even seeds for the rest of the country, irrigating the land with water from the nearby Colorado River and transforming it from a desert to an oasis. They also raise and process livestock that is shipped throughout the country and around the globe. The people of Imperial County also rely on the wind to blow and the sun to continue to shine brightly over 350 days each year in order to generate wind and solar energy for users in southern California and Arizona. In fact, the Imperial Valley is now the leading producer of solar energy in North America.

El Centro’s proximity to Mexico is another “natural resource.” It draws scores of freight forwarders and international trade logistics firms that facilitate and execute shipments of crops, manufacturing components and finished products back and forth across the U.S. – Mexico border.

That wonderful, consistent weather also allows the military to train pilots in Imperial County, including the famous Blue Angels who use the area as their winter home. In addition, a geographic anomaly in the region allows companies like Energy Source, CalEnergy Generation and Ormat Technologies to produce abundant geothermal energy to add to the electric grid.

The movement of people across the border also benefits El Centro. Nearly 60,000 people cross the area’s three border crossings every day to work, shop, attend school, socialize and recreate in Imperial County, generating sales taxes and helping to pay for infrastructure, education and other vital services.

The area is also uniquely suited to the growth of algae, making it a natural place to develop a bRd.-based, economically and environmentally strong, long-term algae industry. Since 1983, algae based nutritional supplements have been produced locally by Earthrise Nutritionals and Synthetic Genomics continues to produce nutraceutical products from algae. Additionally there has been research and small-scale development of algae based bio-fuel production, and Imperial County has been recognized as an ideal location to further pursue the commercialization of these technologies.

“People come from Mexico on a regular basis and they have a major impact on our economy. Most Americans go to the grocery store on a regular basis for small amounts of food because the stores are very accessible,” explained Kelley. “The Mexicans who come across the border to shop at the County’s three Super Walmarts, Costco and other stores, however, they buy a month’s worth of groceries when they come and probably some items that they plan to re-sell when they cross the border. So the per transaction dollar amounts in our stores tend to be very high.” That is one of the reasons why retailers have been attracted to the Valley. A large percentage of Imperial County and El Centro residents are employed by a governmental entity of some kind because government facilities are plentiful in El Centro and the rest of the Imperial Valley, once again due to the weather, geography and proximity of the international border. ▶ www.elcentrochamber.com | 11

Both the United States Navy and the Marines have a strong presence including a Navy SEAL base, a Naval Air Facility and bombing ranges where pilots from allied nations like Britain, Canada, Netherlands, Belgium and others also come to train. There are also two state prisons within the County, a County jail, an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention facility, as well as regular border patrol and U.S. Customs facilities and both city and county government facilities. Kelley said that IVEDC is actively working to capitalize on their existing industries as they work to attract new businesses. They hope, for instance, that the fact that the Navy and even foreign militaries choose to train their pilots at NAF-El Centro will allow them to recruit commercial aerospace firms to the area. They are also recruiting firms that would like to be near existing facilities in the County that would need similar infrastructure, workforce and financial backing that

Imperial County can offer, according to Kelley. “This potentially includes aerospace companies, renewable energy firms, international logistics firms, food processing plants, back office processing/information technology/call centers and even biofuel firms interested in using algae in the production of nutriceuticals, diesel and jet fuel and animal feed.” “For instance, Southern California and the Imperial Valley, in particular, is the perfect environment for renewable energy firms to locate. There is a market for the energy among the residents of southern California, Arizona and potentially, Mexico. We have the infrastructure and capability to transmit the energy from this location to surrounding markets. We have a very proactive population that is committed to renewable energy. And we have a proven track record of getting these types of ventures financed, permitted and constructed, so it is easy for these firms to do business here,” Kelley explained.

“We have also been successful in attracting business to the County because we have a growing population, plenty of Class A office space, low utility rates, competitive labor rates, inexpensive land and low housing prices,” he continued. “IVEDC gets to the principals of firms we are recruiting and those we hope to retain and we let them know about all of the workforce training programs that are available and we make them aware of the low cost of local labor and the state tax incentive programs. We also try to facilitate any financing they might need and help them to understand the process of starting, expanding or relocating a business. We are also currently working to streamline the permitting process in El Centro.” But the IVEDC’s primary mission is to attract and assist commercial and industrial development to increase tax revenues to the County of Imperial and create employment opportunities for the betterment of our communities. ■
