Research question: Why do high-tech companies (such as computer chip manufacturers, hard drive manufacturers, software engineering firms) choose to locate in Eau Claire? What kinds of resources or community amenities draw them here? Background: Eau Claire is a small city located in Wisconsin. Its neighboring county is the Chippewa County which is much smaller but has been renowned for its lumber businesses in the 1800’s. Due to its proximity to Chippewa Falls, Eau Claire is able to gain access to several resources easily. During an economic boom in the 1800’s, the Chippewa Falls was the target for many big firms. Most of them were related to the lumber business. For instance, Mason Shoe Manufacturing Company started out with strong and sturdy boots for the lumberjacks during the 1800’s. However, over time, they have opened their market to new clienteles and now provide women fashion boots and winter boots. Objective: To study and understand why big firms choose Eau Claire over other locations. Questions/Analysis: Factors as to why Eau Claire attracts big firms – proximity to Chippewa Falls, located between/close to Minneapolis-St Paul and Chicago – water is clean and considerably cheaper than other places – safe place, very little disturbance – abundant resources – highly skilled people/workers – good surrounding for children to grow up in/close knit community – cheap leases – big spacious land/location Geographic location: I will focus on Eau Claire but I will also be looking at how big cities (Minneapolis, Chicago) that are close to Eau Claire affect Eau Claire’s economy. Time period: For the time frame to be representative of the data, I will try to find data correlating with the present time but will most likely have to include data that falls back to the early 1800’s to correlate with the growing lumber business in Chippewa Falls. Analytical methods: I will be studying a variety of written review, literatures and researches. I will also obtain statistics and data that will be interpreted as well as helping me come to my final conclusion. To fully illustrate my arguments, I will be including information that are obtained from various sources, namely relevant graphs, tables and etcetera. Example of high tech companies located in Eau Claire: Hutchinson Technology TTM Technology Cray Inc Silicon Graphic Inc
