Creating Jobs in Solano County

Creating jobs in Solano County

Employer commitment

California has always stood for technological and cultural innovation. Companies founded and based here have created many of the products and services we all use every day. These companies have also created well-paid jobs that have made the California Dream possible for millions of families. We are proud to be part of California’s vibrant and innovative economy, where we collectively employ thousands of people.

We want to continue growing, and to hire more people in California. However, in the last decade, the escalating cost of housing has made it challenging for us to provide a high quality of life for our employees and to grow our companies here.

The East Solano Plan is an audacious idea, but California has always been a place that found bold and exciting solutions to even our most difficult problems. We believe in this vision for a sustainable community with lots of room for both manufacturing and office work, combined with walkable neighborhoods, opportunities for home ownership, safe streets for children, and access to parks and recreation.

If the new community is approved as proposed, this would give us the confidence that there’s plenty of room for our business to flourish over the next few decades, both in terms of office and industrial space, and in terms of homes for our employees.

As we enter the new post-pandemic era of work, we are all making decisions about where and how to grow our companies. If Solano County voters approve the project this November, we would be interested in bringing jobs to the new community and finding other opportunities to work together to expand the California Dream.

Announcing our first group of employers

“Hadrian is building a series of factories across America to enable Space & Defense manufacturers to get parts 10x faster and halve the cost of making rockets, satellites, jets & drones. We are excited by the vision of amazing neighborhoods located next to a manufacturing zone designed to accelerate innovation in California. If the East Solano Plan was shovel ready today, we would already be looking at acquiring space for a new factory there.”

Chris Power

“By combining innovative silviculture with tools typically reserved for the life and crop sciences, we can expand the frontier of nature-based removal and accelerate and maximize carbon drawdown, while simultaneously remediating and improving degraded and marginal land. We’re intrigued by the prospect of California Forever and look forward to exploring, in greater detail, the construction of a new indoor nursery capable of growing more than 10 million seedlings in East Solano.”
