Welcome to San Juan County, New Mexico

Are you thinking of starting or relocating a business in the southwest?

Or maybe you need to grow or sustain your locally owned business? Four Corners Economic Development can help you do just that!

Servicing San Juan County, New Mexico (Farmington MSA) in the beautiful Four Corners region, we here at Four Corners Economic Development (4CED) are working hard to create an ecosystem where people and businesses flourish.

Centrally located and rich in culture, sunshine, natural resources and outdoor adventure we are focused on expanding the agriculture, energy, manufacturing, and tourism industries in our area.

Winner of IEDC 2017 Gold Excellence in Economic Development in the Business Retention and Expansion (BRE) Single Event

4CED won the Gold Excellence in Economic Development Award for its Real People, Real Jobs Campaign, a project in the category Business Retention and Expansion (BRE) Single Event. Real People Real Jobs (RPRJ) was a public relations and media campaign launched to fight to save the coal mine from early closure. It was extremely important for local voices to be heard to prevent a potential double in the unemployment rate for the area. The Real People Real Jobs ‘Opportunity Expos’ were also held to assist those individuals that did get laid off due to the downsizing of the plant to find new positions, make connections for retraining, find entrepreneurial opportunities, retire, or find investment resources leading to new opportunities in the area. The initiative is still used to this day.

Winner of IEDC 2017 Bronze Excellence in Economic Development in the Real Estate Redevelopment & Reuse Category

The Aztec HUB won the Bronze award as an innovative redevelopment and reuse project that took a downtown core building and turned it into a thriving tool for creation and incubation of new businesses in the city. Operated by the city, it serves as a business incubator which houses incubation, co-working, business training and meeting space, an outdoor market for pop-up businesses and a home for the Aztec Chamber of Commerce. This collaborative project brought together many entrepreneurial resource partners from the region to provide services in the Aztec area. San Juan College and Four Corners Economic Development worked to support the project through community surveying and applying for grant funding for the project. The HUB provides a convenient and much needed business education, training and services in a location in the heart of Aztec’s business center and downtown core. The added benefit is continued revitalization and renovation of our downtown core.
