When we first started the company as a pure design service company, many of our customers were located in the East Valley, with a majority of our employees coming from the area’s rich talent pool. Within close proximity to Arizona State University, the PHX East Valley was the best place to locate our thriving business as we continue to grow, recruit top talent and enjoy the lifestyle found throughout our region.James McDonald,President

Heliae

@Heliae_ Algae

Heliae started off as a small research and development arm of Arizona State University and as we set to expand here in the PHX East Valley, Gilbert was our ideal location. It was close in proximity with access to attract the talent needed in the industry and the climate algae needs to grow. As Director of Engineering it was best to move my family into the PHX East Valley. Gilbert gives my family and I that small town feel and has everything we need, good restaurants, hiking, recreational activities, etc. yet in close proximity to the airport and attractions of the big city when we need or want it. The PHX East Valley is ideal for continuing to grow business and raise a family.John Cefola, Director of Engineering

Able Engineering

@AbleEngineering

  When we were deciding on a site for our new facility we had many great choices, including out of state. The City of Mesa worked hard to come up with a win-win scenario that made Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport the best value alternative for Able Engineering. All the way through the process we felt like the City of Mesa was a true partner and we look forward to many successful years working in and with the City of Mesa.Lee Benson, CEO

Sossaman Farms

@QCFarm

Living in Queen Creek is perfect for myself, my family and my business. We are close to everything, but not right in in the hustle and bustle experienced in the city of Phoenix. Since 1919, the Queen Creek farm has grown alfalfa, barley, wheat, corn and other crops successfully. I am the fourth generation to own the farm and look forward to the years to come as the PHX East Valley region continues to grow and prosper.  Steve Sossaman, Owner

Schnepf Farms

@Schnepf­_Farms

We love the PHX East Valley and wouldn’t want to put down roots anywhere else but Queen Creek since the farm was established here back in 1941.I have had opportunities to take the farm elsewhere but have never pursued the opportunity because the convenience and quality of life here is incomparable to any other place. The PHX East Valley has a lot to offer including restaurants, shops, recreational activities, performing arts, etc. To me, it’s a great area to live, work and play.Mark Schnepf, Owner

The City of Mesa is first rate and a model for how to get things done. The City team set an ambitious goal for the project and together we made it happen. To go from a conceptual rendering to permits in 10 weeks, particularly for a building of this size, must be a record. The entire Mesa team showed dedication, professionalism and cooperation throughout the process.Rich Marchant, Vice President-Operations

Infusionsoft

@Infusionsoft

At Infusionsoft, we're dedicated to a single purpose — helping small businesses succeed. We believe in the passion and dreams of entrepreneurs. We believe they are job creators, problem solvers, innovators and the backbone of the economy. In 2001 when Infusionsoft was founded we spent a great amount of time looking for the ideal home for what has become an eight-time Inc. 500/5000 company. We ultimately selected Chandler’s Price Corridor in the PHX East Valley because it represents a budding center for tech companies and talent. I grew up in Arizona and know this is a great place to start and grow a technology company. With the state’s incubators, accelerators and co-working spaces, as well as groups like the Arizona Technology Council and Arizona Commerce Authority, there’s a lot of great support.  Clate Mask, CEO/ Co-Founder
