The city of Arvin is best known for its strong agricultural industries, especially the Grimmway carrot packaging plant. Positioned with Highway 223 running through the city, easy access to Interstate 5 and Highway 99, a State Enterprise Zone (1,000+ acres) for commercial and industrial development, low land prices, availability of skilled and non-skilled labor, and a fast-growing population (currently over 16,500), Arvin is an ideal business locale. The Tejon Ranch Commerce Center alone, southwest of the city, is expected to create 6,000 jobs when filled to capacity. The city of Arvin presents an excellent opportunity for business growth in the next decade and beyond.
