|Imagine. . .the fastest growing high-technology manufacturing city in the west, an oasis of opportunity with an increasing presence and commitment from quality employers. Imagine a population that has quintupled from approximately 30,000 in 1980 to nearly 160,000 at the end of the first half of 1998, making it the second fastest growing city in the nation (among those with a population over 100,0000). Imagine being surrounded by beautiful Sonoran Desert landscape, with attractive master-planned residential communities, award-winning public school, young well-educated work force and convenient access to major freeways and metropolitan amenities. Then imagine all of this in a location that is extremely cost competitive.
Chandler is a town that has come a long way since it was founded by Dr. A.J. Chandler in 1912. What started as a sleepy little agricultural town emerged during the 1980's as a strong manufacturing center when high-tech industrial companies such as Intel, Motorola and Microchip Technology moved in. These and other high-tech companies employ more than 22,000 people in Chandler. As a matter of fact, over 75% of Chandler manufacturing jobs are in high technology fields, as compared to 15% at the national level. While maintaining its proud agricultural heritage, the Chandler community is unique in its ability to embrace the high-technology frontier. Chandler is often referred to as the "Silicon Desert of the Southwest".
