Targeted Industry Sectors

The Fountain Hills Economic Development Division's proactive marketing and recruitment efforts have identified three targeted industry sectors that match the region's strengths, goals and assets, as well as provide for a diverse and sustainable regional economy. These targeted sectors were chosen based upon the opportunity for growth, creation of quality jobs, role in regional development and their connections to existing business clusters. We believe we offer these industries a distinct competitive advantage over other communities.
