A little patience and a lot of planning is beginning to pay off in Pinal County.
Public officials and private companies with the same vision have laid the groundwork, literally, for economic growth in the county. The towns and cities in the county have invested millions in infrastructure projects like roads and water and sewer; while private companies also put their money into ensuring there was ample electricity and plots of land to build on. Combined, those entities have created an environment that is ripe for an explosion of development.
“The private sector has really stepped forward and set the groundwork for business development down in Pinal,” said Jackob Andersen, president and CEO of Saint Holdings, which is leading the development initiatives in Pinal County. “Being ready and having shovel-ready projects with infrastructure in the ground, that’s how we win projects like Lucid Motors, like Nikola. It was water, power and sewer, ready to go, right on site.”
