Nevada Economic Development Council Director LaVon Schiltz announced that two new companies are coming to Nevada’s West Industrial Park along Airport Road.

Brite Belt Company, currently located in Ames, has purchased a lot and will begin construction in 2016. The company produces a conveyor cleaning system that is designed to clean, condition and sanitize conveyor belt surfaces. Schiltz said the company’s product saves food processing and other companies time and money, as well as improves safety and sanitation in production.

Brite Belt also produces “Buff-It Brite,” non-abrasive all-purpose cleaning pads for home use, and those will soon be available at the Ben Franklin Store in Nevada.

Pepsico-Frito Lay, an England Contracting Company based in Iowa Falls, has also purchased a lot in the West Industrial Park. The company will build and own a facility that will serve as a distribution center, Schiltz reported. She said they plan to begin construction immediately and will be ready to accept product at the Nevada facility in February. They expect to employ eight or nine people initially.
