FERNLEY, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- The Northern Nevada Development Authority has announce that Zloop Computer and Electronic Recycling Centers is moving their corporate headquarters to the region.
According to a press release, Zloop is opening their new west coast facility in Fernley. Their headquarters is moving from its current location in Hickory, North Carolina.
Zloop is an end of life electronics and electrical equipment recycler. The company specializes in breaking down old and outdated electronics and turning them into feeder stock commodities that are sold and used to make new products. Zloop uses highly efficient processes to ensure that 100% of the used electronics coming in are recycled, making their operation 100% landfill-free.
Everything the company creates is either used for new products, or used to create clean energy. All electronics transformation and recovery is done domestically with complete transparency, so customers can be certain their used electronics are destroyed properly.
Zloop plans to create 56 permanent jobs, with an average wage of over $22/hour. The company estimates that the actual number of jobs created could realistically be around 125 within the first fiscal year. Even though the company has not begun operations in Nevada yet, they are already looking to expand their unopened facility by 80,000 square feet to meet increased demand.
The company will move their headquarters over a nine-month period, but keep all other facilities, including their North Carolina location, operational.
"We [Zloop] are thrilled to be opening our West Coast Operations in Fernley, Lyon County in the Great State of Nevada," said Bob LaBarge, Founder and President of Zloop, Inc. "We sought proposals from several western states and chose Nevada for the impressive incentives packages, quality of life, and excellent workforce. 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 US and Canada."
