Over the years, Artesia has continually invested in a city-owned Industrial Park to provide a suitable environment for industrial based businesses to develop and grow.
The 180-acre park sits right off U. S. 285 just five minutes north of the center of town. The park provides access to city water and sewer. Local telecommunications business, Penasco Valley Telecommunications, has installed fiber optic to provide high-speed broadband telecommunications services. Local rural electric cooperative, Central Valley Electric, provides electricity. Provision of services and alleys for secondary access to every lot equate to a “plug-and-play” environment.
A rail spur into the park provides additional transportation access. Planning for an additional 60 acres of leasable space is underway, which will bring to the total size of the Industrial Park to 240 acres. Over 40 companies currently maintain a presence in the Artesia Industrial Park. These companies include larger corporations such as HollyFrontier, Concho Resources, and GE Oil & Gas, as well as locally owned businesses such as Elite Well Services, CGS Group, and Desert Hills Electric Supply, just to name a few.
