Business and Industry

Even in the face of tough economic times, the city of Milpitas continues to prosper and maintains an optimistic view of its future.

While Milpitas and the surrounding Santa Clara Valley harbor a diversified base of businesses that includes: retailers, educational services, healthcare providers and financial institutions, the manufacturing and high-tech industries are paramount to the area’s economic vitality. As the “Gateway to the Silicon Valley,” Milpitas is proud to host prominent companies like: Cisco Systems, KLA-Tencor, LifeScan, Linear Technology and SanDisk Corporation.

These companies, along with many others, have discovered the “Milpitas Advantage” to doing business. This progressive Santa Clara Valley city is positioned in the northeastern portion of the Silicon Valley, within reach of a valuable transportation system that includes highways, water ports and airports. Its metropolitan location provides businesses with value-priced land and ample incentives, resulting in an attractive cost of operation. Milpitas may be only 14.5 square miles in size, but the city has designated plenty of industrial and commercial space ready for development. In total, the community hosts eight existing industrial parks slated for light manufacturing, high-tech research and development, industrial production and/or office use.

Milpitas is also well-known for being highly supportive of its business community, with organizations like the Milpitas Chamber of Commerce and the City of Milpitas Economic Development Commission working to provide the best opportunities for new and existing businesses.
