With a diverse and innovative economy, burgeoning infrastructure development and the second-most highly educated workforce in the U.S., Metro Denver in Colorado is an ideal location for Japanese firms seeking investment or expansion opportunities.
A daily, nonstop flight between Denver and Tokyo’s Narita International Airport supports bilateral commerce, research partnerships, and educational and cultural exchanges between Japan and Colorado.
While there are more than 50 Japanese companies operating in Colorado, several high profile firms such as Hitachi Data Systems, NTT Communications, Panasonic, Ricoh, Sumitomo, Terumo and the Toyo Seikan Group have chosen to locate in Metro Denver.
In fact, the region continues to stand out as a top destination for foreign and domestic business, with Japan serving as Colorado’s fourth–largest international trade partner. Key industries that have thrived in Metro Denver include aerospace, bioscience, energy (including hydrocarbons and renewables) and information technology.
The region has become a hotbed for high-tech innovation and entrepreneurship in the heart of the U.S. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office located one of four new satellite offices in Denver to capitalize on the region’s knowledge-based companies and highly skilled workers.
