Industrial Center

Minter Field Airport District owns 1,172 acres, with 250 acres set aside for Industrial Center development and an additional 500 acres designated for future expansion.  Below are just a few attributes that make our District unique:

  • Located approximately six miles east of Downtown Shafter and 12 miles northwest of Bakersfield on Hwy 99 and Lerdo Hwy.   
  • The area is ideal for freight transportation. The proximity to Hwy 99 and Interstate 5 (two major North-South freeways), Lerdo Hwy, cross-valley transportation route, and Southern Pacific Transportation Company (railroad) offers access by air, land, or rail.
  • Offers a business location with developed and “ready-to-build” sites, with an opportunity for developer participation. Sites may consist of small parcels to large multi-acre lots, and are priced at very competitive rates
  • The community located immediately outside of the District boundaries is primarily agricultural business; with industrial-related businesses (many associated with agriculture or petroleum) located to the east and southeast of the District.
  • Our industrial tenant operations include oil and agricultural, manufacturing and distribution, commercial, and government-related businesses.
