Few metropolitan areas in America stand at such a favorable junction of environment, resources, and business amenities as Salem.  Salem is 60 minutes from Portland, an hour from the ocean and no more than 90 minutes from year-round skiing, world-class windsurfing, fishing, hiking, camping, and whitewater rafting.  Salem is also within an hour's drive of 70 percent of Oregon's population.

Salem is especially rich in one precious resource: water. Salem's water was judged the best tasting in the West and is among the purest to be found anywhere.

Some 14 of the state's top public colleges and universities are in close proximity to Salem.  And, more of Salem's public schools are on Oregon's top 10 list than those of any other city in the state.

Salem is an exceptional environment for living, working, and growing a business.  Our commutes are short, our air pure, our parks abundant and beautiful.  Salem has land available for development, a ready and willing workforce, great training programs, and a city that works hard to make doing business easy.

How can we be of service?  You can learn a lot more about Salem's many assets to industry, retail and commercial and professional firms right here.  For information and services to help you in the daily course of your Salem business, follow the links below, or in the left menu, to the support you need.
