Nevada's Main Contributor to its Economy
For years, Northern Nevada has built a strong reputation as being a major manufacturing and logistics hub, thanks to the Silver State’s tax-friendly climate for businesses and its premier location as a gateway to the West. Whether we’re talking lithium batteries at Tesla, slot machines at IGT, dietary supplements at NOW Foods or custom concrete products at Jensen Precast, among countless other examples, you can find a manufacturer here for just about anything.
Reno-Sparks has the added benefit of being located at the center of an extensive transportation network on two major highway corridors, as well having major rail service from Union Pacific and Southern Pacific railroads and enjoying top-tier air service at Reno-Tahoe International Airport. Simply put, not only do we manufacture just about anything under the sun, we can ship these products to major markets like Seattle, Las Vegas, San Diego and the Bay Area, any anywhere in between, within hours.
So, as we enter a new decade, and with massive growth projected for Northern Nevada, our panel of experts will address the future of manufacturing and logistics in Northern Nevada, covering topics such as: the growing impact women are having on these historically male-dominated businesses; the pros and cons of Industry 4.0 and how Reno-Sparks is embracing the newest industrial revolution; the state of legal cannabis manufacturing and distribution in Nevada; a look ahead to what the 2021 Legislature may have in store; and much more.
