Why It's Smart to do Business in Newark

Newark is a thriving home for many smart and successful businesses. Located at the southern end of the San Francisco Bay on 13 square miles near the water, Newark represents a diverse, bustling economy at the gateway to some of the world's most affluent markets. Newark is in the direct growth path converging from the north and south. Small town values remain, but lower housing and development costs, close proximity to skilled workforce and universities, a regionally strategic location, available land zoned for industrial use, and the offer of expeditious processing of development applications, make Newark a prime site for the new growth industries of the 21st Century.
