RW Garcia, a global manufacturer of healthful tortilla chips, plans a grand opening this Saturday for its chip manufacturing factory in Clark County.
The San Jose, CA company’s new location in Southern Nevada facilitates 79 new jobs with an average hourly wage of $15.68.
“We have seen great growth in RW Garcia over the past few years,” said Robert W. Garcia, president of RW Garcia Co. Inc., in a statement to the LVGEA. “Our new state-of-the art facility in Las Vegas increases our manufacturing capacity and offers room for continued growth. We very much appreciate the willingness of the Governor to help facilitate the new plant and look forward to continued business in Nevada.”
The LVGEA worked with the Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development and Clark County to help R.W. Garcia acquire state tax incentives and establish its manufacturing plant in Southern Nevada.
“Clark County gave them the access to the market, and lower costs of doing business,” said Kevin Gullette, Clark County Economic Development Administrator. “R.W. Garcia’s investment and job creation are a welcome addition to our community. It shows how truly diversified the economy in Clark County has become.”
The grand opening is scheduled for Saturday, October 25, 2014 at the new facility located at 4780 North Lamb Boulevard, Las Vegas, 89115
