Industrial Supply Company to break ground in Elko, Nevada

Salt Lake City-based Industrial Supply Company will begin construction on a 12,000 square-foot permanent home for its branch in Elko, Nevada.

“Our goal has always been to be a true local provider to the industries in and around Elko, and as our customer base has grown, so too has our commitment to the city,” said Randy Evans, the company’s co-chair and president of Construction, Mining, and Safety. He added that the new facility is an important step in the company’s nine-year history with the community. “Our new building is an investment in this community, and an indication that we will be here for a long time,” he said.

Industrial Supply has been serving the mining, construction, and other industries in northern Nevada since 2012, when it first began leasing its current space on Industrial Way in Elko. Since the location opened, the branch office has grown to include 12 full-time employees who serve about 200 customers. Providing more than double the amount of square footage the company now has, the new building will be better able to meet the needs of the company’s existing customers, and to serve more businesses in the future.

The larger building will allow the company to increase the amount of inventory, such as hard-to-find items, personal protective equipment, and key products that support critical mining and maintenance operations.

“This past year has taught us the value of having supplies near where they are used, and this new facility means that our customers know they can get what they need when they need it,” said Tyler Whipple, regional sales manager.

In addition to increased warehouse space, the new building will include a dedicated room for industry-specific safety and other training. A large front counter area will provide space for resources and customer support.

“This new building will put Industrial Supply in the best possible position to support our customers in northern Nevada, invest in the community here, and meet our pledge of superior customer service,” said Evans.

A groundbreaking ceremony will take place Nov. 15.
