Address:   455 E Calaveras Blvd, Milpitas, CA 95035


With 550 manufacturing plants and eight industrial parks, Milpitas can rightfully claim to be an engine of economic prosperity—as it has been since 1955, when Ford Motors moved its plant there from Richmond, Calif. The old Ford building is now the Great Mall of the Bay Area, with 1.4 million square feet of retail space, but one in five workers in the city are still employed in the manufacturing sector, according to the city’s Office of Economic Development. The city creates so many jobs that during the day its population doubles to 130,000.
