About the Location
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.
Land and leasing costs at the Tejon Ranch Commerce Center are much lower than other major commercial/industrial regions in California, often half the cost or more.
The Commerce Center’s location in unincorporated Kern County gives companies the opportunity to take advantage of the County’s long-held pro-business philosophy which manifests in fast turn-arounds for permits and inspections, as well as its successful "Advance Kern" 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.
