Garlock Printing & Converting Corporation will open its new flexographic printing facility in Reno, Nevada
, with plans to create approximately 175 jobs during the next five years.
With an east East Coast facility in Massachusetts, the firm’s expansion west will broaden its market share and aid its logistics
, the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada said.
"The decision to expand into Reno was easy," said Peter Garlock, CEO, Garlock Printing & Converting Corporation. "The Reno/Sparks area is an excellent location for our West Coast facility for many reasons
, including proximity to our customers, access to a skilled and diverse workforce
, and a business friendly government
that understands community investment."
"Another great company chose Reno/Sparks for their West Coast operations," said Mike Kazmierski, CEO of EDAWN. "We are excited to be able to attract another company from the East Coast as we work to get Reno-Sparks on the radar of companies looking for a great business location in the West."
