Do you know what the businesses LeGrand (the largest global producer of electrical switches and sockets), Keeco Home (a fashion home bedding/bath/window supplier) and Toolots (an industrial tool and machinery supplier) have in common?
Well, they all just expanded their business in Moreno Valley, of course.
The pandemic of 2020 has done nothing to slow down the e-commerce and logistics industry in Moreno Valley, California. In fact, quite the opposite. With more than 27,000,000 square feet of leased corporate industrial space – and more under construction – Moreno Valley has created a resilient job base for its residents, one that provides wages higher than minimum wage, benefits and promising career pathways.
For example, AYRO, Inc. recently teamed up with Karma Automotive, a luxury hybrid auto manufacturer in Moreno Valley. As part of a strategic design and manufacturing partnership, AYRO will be producing more than 20,000 light-duty, urban and short-haul electric vehicles at the Karma Automotive Innovation and Customization Center.
In addition to AYRO and the businesses listed above, 2020 saw the expansion and relocation of businesses such as:
- iHerb, a health and wellness online supplier
- ShipBob, a high tech e-commerce shipment center
- Gate City Beverage, sourcing and delivering the best selection of craft, import and domestic beers
- United Materials Handling, a leading manufacturer of pallet rack and flow systems for industrial spaces
These organizations join Fortune 500 and international companies like Amazon, Skechers USA, Procter & Gamble, Solaris Paper, Philips Electronics, Minka Lighting and Harbor Freight Tools already in Moreno Valley. More than 21,600 jobs have been created in Moreno Valley in the last 7 years.
