Developing Breakthroughs with a Global Impact

From assembling bicycle products to producing electronics equipment and medical devices, Colorado Springs’ manufacturing presence is diverse and vibrant. The region’s facilities, which operate on low utility costs and taxes, are leading some of the world’s most innovative manufacturing ventures around the globe. For example, Springs Fabrication, a leading metal manufacturing company, led the assembly for a system that filtered radiation out of Fukushima’s waters.

With support and manufacturing-related training programs spurred by top-notch educational institutions, such as Pikes Peak Community College and the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS), the region’s workforce is skilled and available to create the next breakthrough.

And with one of the largest Foreign Trade Zones in the country, the Pikes Peak region offers big benefits for companies looking to import or export parts.
