Cimarron Project Area
Alta Advanced Technologies
The City of Ontario is proud to announce the high-tech manufacturing corporation; Alta Advanced Technologies has recently relocated their headquarters from Claremont to the former Sunkist Research and Development Building located at 760 E. Sunkist in Ontario. Investing more than $4 million in building acquisition and improvements, President Steven Boland truly believes Ontario is the premier City in Southern California to do business.
Alta Advanced Technologies, employing close to 50 people, specializes in the design and manufacturing of Ultra-Violet and Infra-Red Lamps and Power Systems for medical instrumentation. Started in 1988, Alta has grown into a high quality lamp and systems manufacturer dedicated to providing superior products by constant quality improvement.
As part of the Cimarron Project Area, the Ontario Redevelopment Agency was proud to assist Alta Advance Technologies with funds to help make building improvements necessary to facilitate the move. The Agency looks forward to further new development in this area making it a hub for entrepreneurs and additional high technology manufacturing.
Sunkist Fruit Packing and Processing Facility
The Ontario Redevelopment Agency is currently in escrow to purchase approximately 8 acres of the former Sunkist Fruit Packing Distribution Center at the corner of Sunkist and Campus Avenues in Ontario. Demolition is underway to provide a clean, debris-free site by the close of escrow late fall 2010. The water tower, a historic landmark will be preserved. In anticipation of the elimination of the facility, the Ontario Redevelopment Agency included the plant in its Cimarron Project Area in 2007.
