Sunnyvale is the headquarters of numerous tech and aerospace/defense countries, but it began its growth with the first fruit cannery in the county. This cannery was the beginning of fruit agriculture as a major industry in Santa Clara county. In 1886, the San Jose Board of Trade named Santa Clara County the "Garden of the World".
The World War II war economy powered the switch from the fruit industry to the high-tech industry in Santa Clara County. To support the war effort, Joshua Hendy Iron Works built marine steam engines, naval guns and rocket launchers. Following the war, the orchards and farms were cleared to build factories, homes and offices. Lockheed, the aircraft manufacturer, moved its headquarters to Sunnyvale in 1956. That began the growth of high-tech, defense and aerospace. Now, the city has a filled roster of top companies.
