RENO, NV (MYNEWS4.COM & KRNV)-- A world-class manufacturing company has expanded to Reno and is expected to bring at least 175 new jobs to the area. In a news conference Monday, Gov. Brian Sandoval and Reno Mayor Bob Cashell joined the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada in welcoming Garlock Printing & Converting Corporation to Reno.

Garlock has been operating in Massachusetts for 27 years and currently employs 315 people at their East Coast facility. Garlock CEO Peter Garlock says the expansion to the West Coast will make the company closer to a lot of their clients.

"Many of our customers are in California and we like friendly Nevada. They opened their arms to us and the Reno area is a fantastic area for us to start our West operation," Garlock says.

Garlock facilities are operate 24/7. The company produces packaging for a variety of other companies and industries including fresh cut produce packaging, snack food packaging, and pet food packaging.

Garlock tells News 4 they plan to hire in the near future and they hope to have the facility completely operation in the next couple of weeks.

I wouldn't call a packaging Co. "world class". Food and related consumer packaging can overburden the waste stream, often is water/energy inefficient, and uses mostly non-renewable feedstocks (think of those six-pack plastic ring-wraps choking sea mammals and birds) Of course, heavy cardboard, plastic, and tinfoil are "mined" here in NV, right? (think China). I'll be persuaded when (if) Nvada gets meaningful recycling and waste reduction, especially by commercial outfits (ha!).
