Where Capability Meets Components

Home to some of the most admired technology companies in the United States including Arrow Electronics, Colorado could be considered the epicenter for the next electronic revolution.

In fact, Colorado’s central location and direct routes to Tokyo and Frankfurt respectively are often cited as key reasons for electronics companies choosing the Centennial State for expansion or relocation.

In addition to our ability to grow and attract electronic firms in our aerospace, bioscience and advanced manufacturing industries, we are also able to attract one of the country’s highest concentrations of tech-related workers. Which, from our perspective, is no small feat considering the shortage of tech talent facing the rest of the nation.

Much of our success at attracting talent can be attributed to global electronics companies such as IBM and Oracle, as well as our renowned universities which are educating the next generation in electronics engineering. In fact, Colorado ranked ninth in the number of science and engineering graduate students per 1,000 individuals ages 25-34 years old in 2011.

With all the components in place, Colorado’s electronics industry continues to make all the right connections for further economic growth and prosperity.
