overview

On November 28, 2016, Lone Butte Development L.L.C ("Lone Butte") celebrated its 50 years of establishment and success.

Established by the Gila River Indian Community (“Gila River”), Lone Butte Industrial Development Park, formerly known as the “Pima Chandler Industrial Park”. Gila River organized Lone Butte to manage and operate the park. The Lone Butte Industrial (Commerce) Park is located within the Gila River Indian Reservation. Gila River is a federally recognized reservation comprised of two (2) Tribes, the Pima and Maricopa.

Throughout its fifty years, Lone Butte has been successful in attracting numerous companies into the park. Pima Valve is a company that is located within the Park that has been a part of the Lone Butte Corporation since 1967 and is still with us today. Lone Butte has had great success in accommodating tenants on a long-term basis as well as short-term.

The opportunities available in the Lone Butte Park are highlighted by its proximity to the metropolitan Phoenix and Chandler growth areas.  Maricopa County boasts one of the fastest growth rates in the country.  New business and industry are attracted to the valley area by the appealing business opportunity/climate, the fact that the valley is a major distribution center for the southwest, and the pleasant, warm and sunny year round weather.  Combine these advantages with a virtually unlimited labor pool of both Indian and non-Indian workers and other advantages of locating a business in the Lone Butte Park becomes apparent.

All major utilities including electricity, telephone/communications providers are conveniently located within the Lone Butte Development Park. Lone Butte owns and operates its own water system, and maintains its own roadways.

Lone Butte works in conjunction with various Gila River Tribal Departments including Gila River Land Use Planning & Zoning, Gila River Department of Transportation, Gila River Tribal Employment Rights Office and Gila River Department of Environmental Quality to name a few that will ensure compliance with the Gila River Tribal Laws and Ordinances.

Additional advantages are available to all clients locating in the Lone Butte Development Park, as well as savings in utility costs, and available labor force. Every effort will be made by the Lone Butte Development Limited Liability Corporation to meet the requirements and demands of the clients.
