We applaud all those who worked so hard to bring this exciting project, called “the biggest economic development initiative in Colorado in at least a quarter century” (Tom Clark, Metro Denver EDC) to our home town!

According to Lori Jarrett, Northern Colorado Real Estate Examiner, “NASA has chosen the Agilent Technologies, Inc. campus in Loveland, Colorado as their choice for the new project which will create an estimated 7,000 jobs locally.”

The new development will create a major economic boost for the area, and for the state.

The Aerospace Clean Energy Manufacturing and Innovation Park will:

  • Create 10,000 jobs across the state.
  • Generate $7 billion in net economic output per year.
  • Locate 100 high tech and clean energy companies at the park.
  • Be a regional economic development engine that will drive growth in the state.
