ENTEK Manufacturing has announced the opening of a new manufacturing and engineering facility in Henderson, Nevada. The new 98,000 square foot building will be home to wear parts production, fabrication and assembly, and engineering.
“We are expanding our business to better meet the needs of our customers’ growing businesses,” said Kim Medford, President of ENTEK Manufacturing, “Our greatest success comes from ensuring the success of the product manufacturers that our equipment supports.”
Linda Campbell, VP of Sales for ENTEK Manufacturing, said the company is experiencing record growth and needed the additional space to keep up with demand. “We recently expanded our machine shop at our Lebanon, Oregon headquarters, and we already need more space, and more workers, to keep up with our wear parts business,” she said.
Medford said ENTEK is investing over $10 million USD in new equipment for the Nevada facility and will begin interviewing and hiring immediately. She expects to have 50 or more new team members working there by late 2022. “Once fully operational, our new facility will allow us to stock parts for rapid customer response,” she said.
“ENTEK chose Nevada for the new facility because it is a growing area of the country with a strong labor market,” said Medford. “We used an outside firm to do a multi-city survey, and the greater Las Vegas metro area came out first when it came to the availability of skilled labor such as machinists and engineers,” she said. “It’s a good location for us, and not far from our headquarters in Oregon.” ENTEK’s business outlook is strong, said Campbell. “We have an aggressive forecast for new business in 2022 and 2023,” she said. “This expansion is the first step in what we expect to be a very active period for our company.”
