Introduction to California Agriculture & Manufacturing

Agriculture in California is worth over $43 billion annually. Its agricultural income exceeds that of every other state and employs approximately a tenth of the state’s labor force. Nearly a quarter of its 99 million acres are devoted to agriculture. It is the nation’s top producer and exporter of agricultural products. Almonds, artichokes, figs, and pomegranates are all primarily produced in this state. Other popular crops include kiwi, lettuce, oranges, lemons, and strawberries. California has only 80,000 farms and ranches, which is less than 4% of the nation’s total, yet it produces 13% of the nation’s agricultural value. Large metal buildings are an essential part of supporting this industry, providing energy-efficient crop storage and secure machine storage.

Technology is also a vital industry in California, contributing largely to the thriving manufacturing sector. Electronic computer manufacturing, software development, and other tech are all found in the world-famous Silicon Valley. These enterprises rely on California metal buildings for flexible office space. Other retail and manufacturing businesses find that California metal buildings are the perfect solution for a variety of applications. Thanks to the modern design and clear span architecture, metal buildings support easy expansion. As your business grows, so does your metal building!

Why California Needs Metal Buildings from Carport Central

California is a gorgeous place to live and visit, but it faces many natural disaster concerns. As CA is the most populous state in America, these disasters impact millions of people. A combination of geology and weather has created a perfect storm of mudslides, earthquakes, and wildfires for residents to contend with regularly. Because of El Nino and the extensive shoreline, there are also occasional floods.

Carport Central’s steel buildings are designed to withstand extreme weather conditions in California. They are mold-resistant, which is important during flood season, and they are fire-resistant, which is vital during wildfire season.
