Wasco Opens Skylight Plant in Reno

Post Time:May 29,2013Classify:Industry NewsView:84

Wasco Skylight Products Inc. has opened a new manufacturing facility in Reno, Nev., where it will produce standard and custom skylights for the commercial and residential market, and expand its distribution west of the Rocky Mountains. The company expects to send its first shipment from Reno by the end of the month, with an open house planned for later this summer.

Wasco has leased the new 57,000-square-foot facility and will hire up to 20 employees from the Reno area. More will be added to accommodate future production, according to a release.

Drawing from Wasco’s East Coast team, Michael Jones, plant manager, and Jeff Binette, customer service representative, have relocated to Nevada.

“We predict significant sales in the first year at the Reno facility, based on our customers’ positive response and the strong potential for growth,” said Jeff Frank, Wasco CEO, in the release. “We’ve created a unique, energy efficient skylight product line that’s perfect for the Western region’s desire for sustainable daylighting solutions in high-end residences and high-performance commercial buildings.”

“Building on our success, the new manufacturing plant positions us closer to our Western customers so we can deliver commercial unit skylights within one week from order and residential orders within 72 hours,” said Sara Havard, Wasco COO, in the release.
