State-of-the-Art Recycling Facility Now Open

State-of-the-Art Recycling Facility Now Open

 

A new, cutting-edge company has opened its headquarters in the Las Vegas valley. U.S. Micro has opened a 130,000 square-foot building at Buffalo Road and the southern Beltway.

U.S. Micro takes components from computers and other information technologies then turns them into nonvolatile materials. The materials are then repurposed for construction projects and consumer products such as bike racks.

The headquarters includes executive and administrative offices along with the recycling facility. The new business is bringing in as many as 100 new jobs to southern Nevada. U.S. Micro invested $15 million in to the project. The building was developed by Panattoni Development Company which has developed and managed millions of square feet of industrial and office space over the last five years.

Dealership Sees Sales Improving, Moves to New Location

Dealership Sees Sales Improving, Moves to New Location

 

The recession caused businesses around southern Nevada, especially car dealerships, to close down. But the industry is making a comeback.

A local car dealership is upgrading to a new facility that owners hope will boost business and bring back jobs.

Gaudin Ford is moving from its location on East Sahara Avenue to a space at Rainbow Boulevard and the southern Beltway. The building is the former home of Integrity Chrysler Plymouth Dodge. That dealership closed in 2007.

"With the markets the way they’ve changed, and the city itself has changed and the whole economy has changed we just need to step up and go with it," said manager Kersh Miller.

Miller should know about change. The 82 year old has worked with Gaudin Ford for more than 50 years. In the last four years the dealership has let go more than a hundred employees, reduced inventory and cut business costs to stay in business.
