There are so many great companies making a move to Reno, which is a a fantastic boost to the Reno economy and great for Reno Real Estate as well. Below is a list of just a few of the major companies coming:
Apple - They are building a Data Center East of Sparks at the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Park. They will employ approximately 400.
Ashima - A drone company coming from California and planning to build a manufacturing facility in Stead. They will employ approximately 400.
Cenntro - An electric vehicle company planning on building a manufacturing facility in Sparks and will employ approximately 300 employees.
Switch - Just announce yesterday by Governor Sandavol - Switch is a data storing facility for such companies as Ebay, Xerox, DreamWorks and Shutterfly. This facility will begin construction east of Sparks at the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Park. They currently have 400 employees in their Vegas facility which is smaller than the Reno facility they plan on building.
Tesla - Building a GIGAFACTORY for their Lithium-ion batteries used in the Tesla cars. Their facility will also be located east of Sparks in the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Park. This facility will employ approximately 6,500 employees.
Zulily - An online retailer plans on building their facility at the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Park and will employ approximately 1,600.
Those are just a few of the larger companies coming to Reno in the near future. Within these companies and the jobs that are being created this does not include all the contruction workers, supplies purchased, etc. that adds to our Reno Economy. There are several smaller companies too!
We are very excited for Reno to be growing in this way with so many great companies.
