EDAWN: More Jobs Coming to Northern Nevada

Posted: Updated:

The Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada - or EDAWN - announced another company has moved to northern Nevada.

And it's bringing new jobs to our area.

King of the West Entertainment specializes in motorsports. And the owner says he's had his eyes on Reno for more than two decades. KWS will relocate from California.

The good news is in the next five years - the company could hire more than 500 people.

KWS plans on expanding and creating new facilities and tracks in Fernley and one between Lovelock and Winnemucca.

The owner picked northern Nevada -- because of our area's potential. "People here get out and do things. They don't sit on their couch. They're riding mountain bikes, they're racing their motorcycles, they're skiing, they're hiking. They're doing something outside," says Dan Simpson.

EDAWN says this is a growing trend. And we can expect to see more small companies making their way into northern Nevada very soon.

"The more we get this kind of company activity, the better. Because it shows we can be a diverse economy here, and it's better than getting one big company, we have a lot of small ones," says EDAWN CEO Mike Kazmierski.

EDAWN told us in the next month or so seven more small businesses will also announce plans to relocate to this area.
