Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) March 18, 2014

Companies that service the mining industry will find a thriving, supportive mining community in Tucson, Arizona, where opportunities exist for start-ups, relocations or expansions, according to a white paper issued by ITRA Global affiliate Commercial Real Estate Group of Tucson LLC.

The 11 page report, “Serving the Mining Industry? Consider Tucson, Arizona, Where Opportunities Abound,” points out that more than 200 area companies provide services and goods to the local mining industry, itself a significant economic driver for the Southern Arizona region for which Tucson is the hub.

”Tucson and Southern Arizona are at the epicenter of some of the most significant copper resources in the world,” mining law expert John Lacy is quoted as saying in the white paper, “and they will be developed as long as the nation needs copper.”

The paper makes the case that high technology is dependent on copper and other minerals for the manufacture of processing chips and other parts, which makes Arizona, and especially the southern part of the state, a crucial location for extracting and processing these minerals.

“Companies that service the mining industry will find a ready market in Tucson, as well as a supportive environment that recognizes the importance of mining to global markets and the local economy,” says Michael Coretz, principal of ITRA Global / Commercial Real Estate Group of Tucson. “Tucson’s University of Arizona is renowned for its education and research into mining issues and business development groups provide a ready-made community in which to thrive.”

Commercial Real Estate of Tucson, as the Tucson Affiliate of ITRA Global, is an expert at identifying sites that mining-industry companies need for their special manufacturing and servicing needs. These special needs are addressed in the white paper, which is available on the Commercial Real Estate Group of Tucson website.
