Enphase, Raydiance, Metier bring new energy
SANTA ROSA and PETALUMA -- Three of Sonoma County’s newest tech companies have widely diverse products: ultra-short pulse lasers, microinverters for the solar industry and project portfolio management software.
But Raydiance, Enphase Energy and Metier are alike in three ways: they each arrived within the last four years, they each consciously chose the North Bay to locate their headquarters or a major center and all three are growing as fast as they can find qualified staff.
BioMarin, Buck Institute, TriVascular in growth mode
NOVATO and SANTA ROSA -- BioMarin Pharmaceuticals, the Buck Institute for Age Research and TriVascular are expanding research, products and staff.
Each has innovative products either on the market or under development, with a healthy cushion of capital for future growth.
Hospitals, health centers planning new facilities, expansions
Nearly every sector within health care in the North Bay is undergoing rapid expansion, reflecting a nationwide trend that shows little sign of a respite.
