CopperPoint Case Study: The Economic Impacts of Buying Locally
CopperPoint, a 555-employee company, indirectly supports 3,600 jobs and creates a half billion dollar impact on Arizona.
Local First Arizona retained Applied Economics to perform an economic benefit analysis of the operations of CopperPoint on the State of Arizona (download study in PDF format).
The findings of this analysis show that locally owned companies with a vested interest in the community in fact do create a greater economic impact, indirectly supporting more jobs, payroll and output locally. They also create a greater revenue impact in that more of the taxes they pay, and their employees pay, stay in Arizona.
