The December groundbreaking at the Lucid Motors plant in Casa Grande officially cemented Pinal County as a hub for the budding electric vehicle manufacturing industry.

But the Lucid facility is also indicative of an ongoing shift within the local economy — one that thrives on advancements in technology and progressive innovation.

Announcements like the one made by original equipment manufacturer Nikola Motor Company, which plans to build a 1-million-square-foot facility at the southern end of Coolidge, underscore how business and enterprise around the state and even around the country are changing at breakneck speeds.

The shift, however, could not have been possible without businesses like Saint Holdings LLC to pave the way.

As one of the largest private land owners in Arizona, Saint Holdings played an integral role in attracting both Lucid and Nikola to the region through the development of the Central Arizona Commerce Park in Casa Grande and Inland Port Arizona in Coolidge.

For years, President and CEO of the company Jackob Andersen and his team have purchased and developed agricultural land, foreseeing a future where that land could become home to large-scale businesses.
