The Tejon Ranch Commerce Center is located about an hour north of the San Fernando Valley, very near the geographic and population center of California, providing the ability to reach more than 40 million people with next-day delivery and 70 million in two days, with the shortest average distance to major population centers in the western U.S.
The Commerce Center sits on both sides of Interstate 5, giving distributors immediate access to the west coast’s principal north-south goods movement corridor, and an easy connection via State Highway 58 to both the I-15 and I-40 east-west corridors.
The Commerce Center’s location in unincorporated Kern County gives companies the opportunity to take advantage of the County’s aggressive new economic incentive program. Kern County offers individually tailored performance-based tax revenue sharing opportunities with NO CAP on the amount of the incentive or the duration it’s offered. It’s currently the only major logistics location in Kern County eligible for the incentive.

John Flanigan, Executive Vice President of Global Supply Chain, Dollar General

The Tejon Ranch Commerce Center (TRCC) is part of the featured article on California Industrial Real Estate in the March 2018 issue of Western Real Estate Business. In the article, Tejon Ranch Executive VP of Real Estate Joe Rentfro outlines the many reasons why TRCC is a proven value for companies looking to locate and/or expand in California. It all comes down to location, labor and logistics...and "thinking outside the box."
Tejon Ranch commissioned a study by an independent, third-party consultant to analyze the factors most important to site selectors, and to see how TRCC compared to other major industrial regions in California. The conclusion? TRCC offers significant advantages.
According to Colliers International Senior Executive VP John DeGrinis, there are many reasons why more LA-based companies. like L'Oreal, will want to make the short move north to the Tejon Ranch Commerce Center.
The County of Kern has approved a new economic incentive for L'Oreal that's worth $2.3 million. The incentive, which will come in the form of rebates on property, sales and use taxes paid by the international beauty company, is based on the number of jobs created. It is the first incentive approved under the new Advance Kern program, which was approved by the Board of Supervisors in November 2017.
L'OREAL USA is making the move from Valencia, CA to the Tejon Ranch Commerce Center to take advantage of the three "L"s - Labor, Logistics and Location. Having outgrown its existing facility, L'Oreal needed a place where it could expand, even as the company continues to grow.
