Business & Industry

Business

Prescott enjoys a growing economy thanks to an entrepreneurial spirit welcomed by the community. While it is predominantly a small business town, Prescott and the surrounding communities have attracted some notable bigger businesses, too. You may recognize such names as Ace Hardware, Sturm Ruger, Lockheed Martin, Midway Industrial, Pure Wafer, Cobham Avionics/Wulfsberg Electronics, MI Windows/Better Bilt and Printpack.

Tourism, of course, is key to the local economy. Some 1,800 guestrooms are available at local hotels, motels and bed & breakfasts.

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

The Prescott Chamber of Commerce promotes its members by enhancing the overall business environment of Prescott. The Chamber was founded in 1910, but soon after took on the broader Yavapai County Chamber name. Eventually, it regained its former identity and has been so ever since.
