NNDA helps bring manufacturer to Northern Nevada
Buffalo Wire Works Co. Inc., a Buffalo, N.Y., company specializing in technology-based screening solutions, is opening a manufacturing, warehouse and distribution operation in Sparks.
The new location is scheduled to open and be fully operational in February.
The new expansion was facilitated by the Northern Nevada Development Authority assisted by Miller Industrial Properties, wrapping up a two year search for a West Coast location.
According to Joe Abramo, chief executive officer of Buffalo Wire Works, “We executed an extensive site selection process over the last two years, visiting locations in California, Utah, Arizona, Oregon, Washington and Nevada. We selected Sparks because of the extensive mining operations in Nevada and geographic proximity to a majority of our current and potential target customers.
“The NNDA team succinctly addressed all questions and issues to seal the deal that brought Buffalo Wire Works to Sparks. This plant will create very stable manufacturing employment opportunities and put American workers back to work.”
Buffalo Wire intends to supply the mining, aggregate and industrial markets with screening products including wire, urethane, rubber and industrial fine mesh screens.
“Aligning Buffalo Wire Works with the University of Nevada, Reno and the College of Engineering, School of Mines is an immediate priority,” said Abramo. “As an engineering-based manufacturing company, we would like to fully engage with the university to explore potential research and development collaboration, develop work study programs for current students and create employment opportunities for graduates.”
