There's also some agriculture and a number of natural food companies in the area but I'd suspect that local technology labor supply more so than local customer base is the reason they have an office in Boulder.McDonald Pelz is a leading agricultural commodities brokerage firm. They have an office in Boulder (top right). I don't get well why they have an office there. I am not saying that Boulder is not a nice place, with beautiful landscape and great playgrounds for outdoor sports lovers. The History page of McDonald Pelz website doesn't help much. Are there any (e.g. tax) benefits in CO for such company? Any suggestion welcome! Merci!
