Portland is home to major manufacturing, maritime, technology, and sporting apparel industries. The steel industry thrives in the region, with several prominent steel companies supplying record exports to Asia. Technology is also a major component of the city’s economy, with more than 1,200 technology companies existing within the metro. This high density of technology companies has led to the nickname “Silicon Forest” being used to describe the Portland area, a reference to the abundance of trees in the region and to the Silicon Valley region in Northern California. Computer components manufacturer Intel is the Portland area’s largest employer, providing jobs for more than 15,000 people.
The Portland metro area has become a hub for athletic and footwear manufacturers. The area is home to the global, North American or US headquarters of Nike, Adidas, and Columbia Sportswear. Portland-based Precision Castparts is one of two Fortune 500 companies headquartered in Oregon, the other being Nike.
The Port of Portland is the third largest export tonnage port on the west coast of the U.S., and being located about 80 miles (130 km) upriver, it is the largest fresh-water port.
