Our region’s history is a colorful one that was founded when El Paso del Norte (The Pass of the North) was established in the late sixteenth century. These beginnings were the result of exploration and discovery that helped El Paso grow and adjust over the centuries to follow. This includes the manufacturing industry that has been established and has been a vital component of our livelihood for many decades now.
Today, we prepare for a new and exciting era with Advanced Manufacturing. It’s an industry we’ve worked toward with our established manufacturing history and one that’s ideal for the region based on our academic opportunities, military presence, and young and energetic workforce. Most importantly, it’s going to benefit the people of our region with advanced learning, future-forward jobs, and higher wages. The exploratory roots of our history are sprouting once again for this great opportunity, and the next several years will be critical in preparing our community for this new era.
We look forward to keeping you updated on this progress for… El Paso’s Next Frontier!
