Hey, look! TheDeal just noticed all of the tech companies in the San Fernando Valley. I think this is one of the first articles (not from our own coverage over the last ten+ years) actually noticing the tech industry along the 101 corridor. Writing in “The state of Calabasas”:
Calabasas and its neighbors suggest a far more nuanced business environment than recent mortgage-industry-based notoriety might indicate. They are corporate homes to a surprising number and variety of companies, everything from restaurant chain Cheesecake Factory Inc. and specialty retailer Guitar Center Inc. to video gamer THQ Inc. and the country’s largest landscape services provider, ValleyCrest Cos. Liquidators such as Buxbaum Holdings Inc. and the Great American Group Inc. congregate in the area. Head a little further west into Westlake Village and encounter the corporate digs of Dole Food Co., athletic shoemaker K-Swiss Inc. and researcher J.D. Power and Associates. Biotechology giant Amgen Inc. dominates an area of nearby Thousand Oaks called Newbury Park.
