Analysis of the Medical Manufacturing Industry

Menifee is one of Southern California’s fastest growing and most vibrant cities. It is also one of the region’s newest cities and is working hard to develop businesses within its boundaries that will maximize its potential. Currently, many of its residents travel to neighboring cities for work. To reverse this trend, Menifee has utilized its open real estate and developed new economic development corridors in the city to bring in new industries, including medical device manufacturing. The medical device manufacturing industry relies on both innovation and production. While research is likely to continue to be focused within established clusters of Bay Area, Irvine, and San Diego, production can be performed in cities like Menifee. As part of a six-city region, in Southwest Riverside County, Menifee can leverage its own strengths to find a place within this enduring industry.
