Target Industries

Because of its opportune location in the broader Metro Denver region, Berthoud works closely with the Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation to recognize and create opportunities for target industries in the area. These identified industries demonstrate synergy between the assets in the region that support them, and the types and amount of businesses that thrive in the region.

Northern Colorado Target Industries

Berthoud is unique among other front range communities because of the composition and skill sets of our workforce. As the chart indicates, a high percentage of our workforce is engaged in the Construction, Manufacturing and Professional and Technical Services industries. Healthcare and Social Assistance industries and Retail Trade also employ a good percentage of the workforce.

Regional Target Industries

The targeted industries identified for Berthoud were based on the assets and resources within the community, and those in close proximity. Berthoud is located within a three-county labor shed, right between the University of Colorado at Boulder and Colorado State University in Fort Collins, as well as Denver.

These major target industries were selected from the current Metro Denver EDC list of targeted industries and match up with the strengths and weaknesses of Berthoud and surrounding communities.
