NNDA to honor five TRI companies

Five companies in the Tahoe Reno Industrial (TRI) Center will be acknowledged at the Northern Nevada Development Authority's annual business recognition dinner Aug. 31 at the Supper Club at Genoa Lakes.

Four new companies located in TRI scheduled to be officially welcomed to the State are Benco Dental Supply, a full-service dental distributor; GSI Commercial Solutions, a leading provider of ecommerce and interactive marketing services; Scougal Rubber Corp., a manufacturer of rubber and steel-reinforced bearing pads; and Toys R Us, the country's leading toy retailer. James Hardie Building Products will also be recognized for its 100,000 square foot expansion, which brought their manufacturing facility to over 400,000 square feet.

"TRI Center continues to attract firms needing a west coast distribution center for their national platform and companies with unique manufacturing needs," said Lance Gilman, principal at TRI Center. "The strength of our logistical position in Northern Nevada, ease of doing business in Storey County and the immediate access to all services from our park makes TRI Center the logical choice for these quality companies."

The five companies along with other recent newcomers to TRI, and Schulter Tile, a German company, have brought over 700 new jobs to Northern Nevada.

Red Cross set to move relief facility to TRIC

The American Red Cross is preparing to move disaster-relief supplies into a new 130,000-square-foot facility at Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center.

"We expect to have the warehouse completely stocked by the end of August," said Red Cross spokesman Roy Jensen. "In all we will bring in about 6,500 pallets loaded with approximately 12,000 disaster relief materials and equipment."

The facility's mission focuses on disaster relief in the Western states, although it also can provide assistance to other areas of the nation.

It's one of five operations of its type in the United States. Three are located on the East Coast and the fourth in the Midwest.

The American Red Cross leased the new facility on USA Parkway from ProLogis. The disaster relief operations previously were located in a Parr Boulevard warehouse.
