The Town of Sahuarita, Arizona, is in the planning stages of building the Sahuarita Advanced Manufacturing and Technology Center (SAMTEC).

Freeport-McMoRan’s Sierrita copper mine is located near Sahuarita, AZ and has granted $165,000 to aid in constructing the 32,000 square foot building that will host the Technology Center. SAMTEC has also received a federal grant through the U.S. Commerce Department’s Economic Development Administration. The new tech park is expected to create new jobs and retain jobs for the community.
