Business Information

The Vista Unified School District (with more than 1,700 people on the payroll) and the North County branch of San Diego Superior Court (with some 600 workers) are by far the leading employers in Vista. But make no mistake: The Vista Business Park south of Highway 78 drives the city’s economic engine.

More than 21,000 people work for more than 800 firms at the sprawling center, leaving the 15-million-square-foot business and industrial park a vacancy rate of 7.3 percent in 2013, a 10-year low. Three-fourths of the businesses recently surveyed at the center said they expected to grow over the next three years. Among the park’s major manufacturers are medical device maker DJO Global, the spa maker Watkins Manufacturing Co., Zodiac Pool Care, Jen-Wen Windows & Doors, Datron World Communications and Aqua Lung, the oldest maker of diving equipment in the United States.
