One of the most established industries in the Valley is film making and primarily that is what the Valley is known for. The “Valley of the Stars” is the center of motion picture and television production in America. This multi-billion dollar economic engine supports countless allied companies and creative professionals who showcase their art from here. However, entertainment is far from the only star that lights up the San Fernando Valley’s economy. The Valley features a large manufacturing base that is thriving and growing stronger each year. Aerospace is a key industry here and thriving companies such as Aerojet Rocketdyne in Canoga Park, Northrop Grumman in Woodland Hills, and Crane Aerospace and Electronics in Burbank have made their home here in the Valley. These Aviation and defense companies employ thousands of skilled research and development engineers and designers.

The San Fernando Valley

Part of what makes the San Fernando Valley region so unique is the small- to mid-sized nature of our local manufacturing companies. The San Fernando Valley is home to a variety of industries most notably, manufacturing, a thriving industry with a staggering variety of world-class businesses generating products and services from aerospace engineering to computer parts, avionics, cosmetics, adhesive products, innovative medical diagnostic devices, and health and beauty products at a rate that has transformed the Valley – our Valley – into one of the most vibrant business centers in the country with international trade as, one of the primary drivers of its diverse and dynamic economy. The mission of The Valley International Trade Association is to promote the Greater San Fernando Valley as a leader in international trade by providing our members with valuable resources, informational seminars, referral assistance and networking opportunities.
