Phoenix was recognized as the fastest growing city in the United States five years in a row, between 2015 & 2020. During this time, roughly 634 companies relocated or expanded to Arizona, EnPower being one of them.
President & CEO, Annette Finsterbusch, relocated the company from Houston, Texas to Phoenix, Arizona in 2018. The decision was in part due to the low cost of living and operating, high quality of life, and exceptional climate for battery making.
Access to a robust talent pool is a key benefit to Arizona companies, bolstered by state universities and tech-focused trade programs. In 2021, Phoenix was listed as the 17th U.S. state for best tech talent market in North America.
Arizona is now ranked one of the hottest spots in the country for innovation and ranks number 7 among U.S. cities with the most startups. The startup ecosystem and state technology initiatives have played a critical role in EnPower’s growth since 2019.
