A Great Place to Grow a Business


"Union City has always made it clear that the folks at City Hall are there to help and support growing businesses. When Abaxis needed 100,000 sq. ft. of space to build our manufacturing operations, we were welcomed by the City, and we are always treated like a good neighbor and partner."
-Clint Severson, CEO
