Albuquerque is also the home of the International Balloon Fiesta, the world’s largest gathering of hot-air balloons, taking place every October.
In the high desert near the Sandia Mountains and just off historic Route 66, Albuquerque thrives as a cultural center of New Mexico, known for its art, hot air ballooning and regional cuisine. “Red or green?” is a common question when ordering the famous chili. Albuquerque has a multicultural history, evident through its reverence to Native American, Hispanic & Latino and other cultural heritages. Flintco opened our Albuquerque office in 1994. Because of our Native American heritage, improving the quality of life for Native Americans on tribal lands remains an important mission for the company.
