Nevada is gaining a new company from North Carolina, according to a statement from governor's office of economic development. Zloop Computer and Electronic Recycling has chosen Nevada as its homes for a new facility.
The electronic recycling plant will be located in Fernley, Nevada. At the facility, Zloop will break down and repurpose old computers and electrical equipment to be sold as new resources and products. The company's North Carolina plant will remain operational, and through both plants, Zloop will be better positioned to handle its expanding businesses.
Zloop chose Nevada as the location for its new West Coast Operations in part because of the incentives package, according to Area Development. The Lyon County Board of Commissioners approved a letter of acknowledgement regarding a financial incentive application for Zloop, according to the Reno Gazette-Journal. The company's request, which includes asking for sales, use and property tax abatements will be considered in July.
"We sought proposals from several western states and chose Nevada for the impressive incentives packages, quality of life and excellent workforce," said Bob LaBarge, president of Zloop, according to Area Development. "We look forward to moving our corporate headquarters to Fernley and working closely with the surrounding communities as we continue to grow our operations here and throughout the U.S. and Canada."
Zloop anticipates hiring 56 workers for the plant, but may need as many as 125 employees within the first year of operations, according to the economic development office.
The state is pleased with the prospect of many well-paying jobs, according to Ray Hooper, the executive director of Northern Nevada Development Authority. Good positions positively affect the economy and allow residents to be able to purchase homes, cars and products from local businesses.
A company like Zloop has a huge effect on the surrounding area," said Hooper. "And, as the work of Zloop is good for the environment, it is a big win-win for the Sierra Region."
Businesses like Zloop should work with technical recruiters to find the most qualified workers to fill their open positions.
