New Orleans East is home to the city's largest industrial and technology based companies, The expanding "Technology Corridor", anchored by the NASA Michoud Facility is a "manufacturer's trifecta" with access to multiple modes of transportation. Driving growth in the sector are dynamic and innovative companies such as Jacobs Technology, Blade Dynamics, Benecom Technologies and others that now share access to advanced technologies acquired and/or developed by NASA. These visionary entrepreneurs are finding it smart and economical to share resources, knowledge and the synergy that comes with locating within the corridor. Other legacy companies continuing to thrive and expand include Air Products, and Folgers, which operates the world's largest coffee roasting plant in the world. All of which equate to a concentration of high-wage jobs and economic benefits to the immediate area, city and state. With room to grow, the 'Technology Corridor' offers an exciting future for the residents and stakeholders of New Orleans East.
