Who We Are
The CCVEDC was formed in the late 1980s by the professional Economic Development organizations serving the counties of California’s Central Valley. Together with their partners like Pacific Gas and Electric, they have cooperated and collaborated to present the Central California as a highly desirable location for expanding companies seeking the advantages of a rapidly growing and resource rich environment.
What We Do

- Conducting site searches and site tours
- Facilitating planning and consultation meetings
