El Segundo has the second highest concentration of Fortune 500s in the state of California, behind San Francisco.
That's not bad for a small beach city just over five square miles in size.
El Segundo has managed to attract the cream of the crop in aerospace, information technology, manufacturing, health care, oil refining, and other key industries.
El Segundo's Fortune 500 Companies:
"El Segundo is well situated to attract the talented people who work in our high technology labs and advanced manufacturing centers.
Northrop Grumman has been doing business in El Segundo for nearly 30 years, and we're proud to be a good neighbor in the community."

"Mattel, Inc. is proud to call El Segundo home of our World Headquarters.
The City of El Segundo worked with Mattel in 1991 to facilitate a move to our current location, which includes our corporate 14-story tower and three other nearby buildings.
It was a perfect fit and remains so today.
We believe the El Segundo community offers an ideal setting to foster the creativity and talents that enable our team to design, develop and market our unique brands."
