Manufacturing, Distribution and Logistics

Buckeye is emerging as a center of logistics, distribution, and manufacturing. Existing businesses such as the Wal-Mart / Sam’s Club Distribution Center, Wal-Mart Transportation and Logistics, Clayton Homes, and Fertizona are not only successful within our community but are expanding.

Buckeye is located along the CANAMEX Corridor and has direct access to Interstate 10, State Route 85, MC 85 and is located a short distance from Interstate 8 and the newly constructed Loop 303. The future Interstate 11 is being planned to pass through Buckeye, which would develop critical north/south transportation access from Mexico to Canada within the Sun Corridor. In addition to prime interstate access, the Union Pacific Railroad provides rail access to the area and has future plans to locate a large manifest yard in Buckeye.

Healthcare and Healthcare Technologies

Health spending is rising, most notably in the wealthiest countries where growth of health spending exceeds GDP growth substantially.
To understand the rate of growth, in 1960, health spending accounted for less than four percent of GDP on average across the wealthiest countries. By 2009, the average had risen to 9.6 percent, with a high of 12 percent in several countries. The United States spent more than 17 percent of its GDP on health care in 2009.
