About City of Eloy, Arizona
Eloy is a multifaceted community with
numerous housing options, great industrial parks
and sites and one of the most desirable locations
in Arizona. We are located midway between
Phoenix and Tucson and half way between
Southern California and West Texas. Eloy is less
than one hour from two of the Southwest’s
busiest airports, Sky Harbor International in
Phoenix and Tucson International. Its own
municipal airport is home to one of the largest
sky diving centers in the U.S., Skydive Arizona™.
For over 100 years, Eloy’s economy has
been based on agriculture. However, as times
change, so has Eloy. The focus now is industry,
warehousing, transportation and interstate
commerce that can share the stage with
agriculture. Agriculture has also evolved, with
new technology that more efficiently utilizes
precious water resources ensuring both water
quality and quantity for the next phase of Eloy’s
growth. An example is Bridgestone, which has
been growing guayule, a low water consumptive
crop that can be used in the manufacture of tires
with the by products used as a feed crop and soil
enhancer. Guayule is only one of the innovative
steps supported by Eloy for a prosperous future.
Eloy is also home to Otto Industries, Schuff
Steel, Republic Plastics, Vext Science and
Bayer among many other great employers.
Now, a new technology is starting to form
Eloy’s future with the advent of the modern
EVs or Electric Vehicles. Both Lucid Motors
and Nikola Motor Company have made this
area their manufacturing home and as such
have generated a welcome influx of supplier
industries. This increased employment has, in
turn started a housing boom for everything
from affordable housing to executive housing
— in other words, something for everyone!
Fortunately, Eloy is in a position to
Eloy’s elected leaders have provided the vision
to attract a team of professionals dedicated to
the principles of sustainable and responsible
growth to enhance existing and new community
investment. Eloy is the best place to grow or
establish your foothold for the future. Eloy, at the
Intersection of Value, Location and Opportunity.
