Several smaller companies are moving into facilities at the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center such as the Riverview One flex building owned by Vince Griffith's Reno Cattle Co.
Griffith said the Riverview One structure has six 5,000-square-foot bays, and that he has leased three of the bays to Northern Nevada Rebar and another single bay to Triple A Carpet. Both companies are presently in Sparks.
Sugerarbo Soto, owner of Triple A Carpet said they would be moving the entire operation to TRI. They sell and install carpets and other floor coverings.
The 15,000-square-feet area occupied by Northern Nevada Rebar will be an expanded production facility. The company will maintain its facility in Sparks. The company purchases rebar and then cuts it to meet the specifications of its customers.
Griffith is about to begin construction of a second 30,000-square-foot flex building with the same configuration of six 5,000-square-foot bays to be called Riverview Two.

Mining company earns incentive for energy savings
Round Mountain Gold Corp. has earned a $202,824 Sure Bet incentive from Sierra Pacific Power Co. for investing in energy conservation at its gold mining operation about 50 miles north of Tonopah.
The payment was made through a utility program that offers financial incentives to commercial electric customers for being more energy efficient. The incentive is the largest that's been paid to a customer in Sierra Pacific Power's service area.
To qualify for the rebate, the mining company upgraded 1,600 fluorescent lights at the company's administration building and assay laboratory to more energy efficient models. Round Mountain also installed new digital controls on three of the mine's huge electric-powered shovels that allow operators to vary the amount of electricity used to run the equipment, which changes depending on the motion and use of the shovels.
