Myers Industries Moves Back to Sparks Facility - More Jobs to Northern Nevada

On the heels of the announcement of Aragh Group moving to McCarran, NV in the largest user transaction of the year to date, Myers Industries Lawn & Garden recently announced that they are returning to Sparks, NV.

Myers Industries owned the facility at 550 Spice Island - a property that had been brokered by the NAI Alliance Industrial Properties group of J. Michael Hoeck, SIOR, Dave Simonsen, SIOR, CCIM, and Michael Nevis, CCIM.

Myers initially moved out of the building in 2009, but as part of an asset reallocation, decided to move back to the area to get a better stronghold on their western states distribution, particularly in the Pacific Northwest.

Northern Nevada continues to be an attractive option for advanced manufacturing organizations. Skilled workforce, business friendly climate, and proximity and access to the Western United States are just a few of the reasons companies are moving in.

The combination of jobs being created in the next 6 months between Ardagh and Myers totals over 160. A summer of great news with more on the horizon. Fantastic work by the NAI Alliance Industrial Properties Group, EDAWN, and the Governor's Office of Economic Development in helping ensure that the future continues to be trending in a positive manner here in Northern Nevada.
