We were honored to welcome Rachel Linares and Paul Stamper to our facilities in Oxnard, CA
AGQ Labs hosted a tour last August 15th to two members of the County of Ventura Executive Office. Paul Stamper and Rachel Linares visited our laboratory located in Ventura County and had the opportunity to see the process of receiving and analyzing the samples from our clients. We explained the history of our company and all services provided around the world.
Ventura County is one of 58 counties in the State of California. It has a strong economic base that includes major industries such as biotechnology, health care, education, agriculture, advanced technologies, oil production, military testing and development, and tourism. Naval Base Ventura County at Point Mugu is the largest employer in the county with more than 16,000 employees. The County of Ventura (government) is the next largest employer with more than 8,000 employees located throughout the county. The Port of Hueneme is California’s smallest, but only deep-water port between Los Angeles and San Francisco, and plays a major role in the local economy.
The County of Ventura was formed January 1, 1873, when it separated from Santa Barbara County. It is a general law county, governed by a five-member Board of Supervisors, elected at-large for a staggered four-year term in their respective districts, and the chairmanship rotates annually. The Board of Supervisors is responsible for providing policy direction, approving the County budget, and representing the County in several areas including special districts. Board actions can apply countywide or only in unincorporated areas.
