APEL Extrusions:

“Arizona is thrilled to welcome APEL Extrusion’s high-performance manufacturing facility to our state – the company’s second location outside of Canada. […]

We look forward to partnering in their success for decades to come.”


Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD):

“Tucson is the ideal location for critical infrastructure and was selected after a careful review of a number of alternative locations in the southwestern U.S. and Mexico. […] Arizona’s favorable business climate, the strength of its workforce and Tucson’s centrality to other parts of BD’s supply chain were key factors in the decision.”



“I’m thrilled to announce plans for Intel’s first large-scale foundry operation, which will be in Arizona. […] This represents an investment of approximately $20 billion dollars, which will create over three thousand permanent high-tech, high-wage jobs, over three thousand construction jobs, and 15,000 local long-term jobs in Arizona. To make our new expansion in Arizona possible, we are excited to be partnering with the state of Arizona and the Biden Administration on incentives that spur this type of domestic investment.”



“ThriftBooks expansion emphasizes Arizona’s competitiveness as a location for global e-commerce leaders, and we’re grateful for this continued investment in our state. […] We congratulate ThriftBooks on its growth and look forward to supporting the company’s success in Arizona well into the future.”
