Inland Empire is America’s Fastest Growing Industrial Center

The New York Times refers to the Inland Empire as Southern California’s backlot, because of its vast warehouse complexes and staging areas. But with the Riverside-San Bernardino region as the hottest industrial construction site in the nation, the Inland Empire is the center stage for America’s new industrial boom.

Inland Empire Job Growth Soars; Only Outpaced by Silicon Valley

A year ago, the Inland Empire cities of Riverside and San Bernardino were ranked as “Among Slowest To Recover Since Recession,” in unemployment rates, median income and home prices. But those low costs have sparked a new economic boom as Riverside and San Bernardino counties’ job growth now only trails the Silicon Valley tech hubs of Santa Clara and San Francisco counties, according to a report released Thursday at an Ontario economic conference.
