Doing Business in Meridian  

 Eldorado Shrunk

As one of Idaho's fastest-growing cities, Meridian is located in the most populated area of the state and is the center of the Boise Metropolitan area.  This area includes the world headquarters for corporations such as Micron, the J.R. Simplot Company, and Boise Corporation.  The region is also a successful environment for manufacturing for world-renowned hi-tech companies such as Blackhawk, Western Electronics, Crucial Technology, Micro 100 Tools, and Computrol.  This thriving environment is driven by two key factors: a low cost of doing business and access to an exceptionally productive workforce.  Some of the lowest utility costs in the West and competitive labor rates keep these manufacturing companies as leaders in the global market place.
