Henderson, Nevada (PRWEB) November 19, 2014
VSR Industries (VSR), manufacturers of specialized, high security gaming locks will break ground on a new 28,000 square foot lock production factory today. The company has named Henderson-based TWC Construction Inc. (TWC) as general contractor for this significant new project.
This is the third building the companies have partnered on in the Southern Nevada region and brings the VSR campus to 150,000 square feet.
"This expansion project demonstrates the commitment that VSR has to Henderson and is a testament to a strengthening economy. We are excited to see this new manufacturing facility in our community providing good jobs and opportunity for our citizens,” said Andy A. Hafen, Mayor, City of Henderson.
The project, which is located at 1743 Whitney Mesa Dr. in Henderson, Nevada, is being commemorated today with an official “hard hat ground breaking ceremony” attended by company executives and city officials. The build-to-suit project is a 28,000 square foot freestanding concrete tilt-up building on 2.12 acres. It will house the company’s growing lock manufacturing operations exclusively. Construction will be completed in May of 2015.
“TWC believes in a commitment to building relationships with clients, not just building projects for them. It is very gratifying to be chosen by VSR on this, our third consecutive project,” said Mark Wilmer, vice president, TWC Construction, Inc. “Growth of this type is illustrative of the recovery we, in the Southern Nevada commercial construction industry, have been hoping to see for some time and we are pleased to be a part of it.”
“For nearly 7 years, we’ve been consistently expanding our footprint in Southern Nevada by basing a significant portion of our operations here,” said Colt Vollmann, COO & CFO, VSR Industries. “Our skilled workforce creates the gold standard in gaming cabinets, slot bases, cabinetry, and custom fabrication. The state-of-the-art lock manufacturing facility TWC is constructing for us will free up space necessary to accomplish the expansion of our rapidly growing slot cabinet manufacturing division.”
