GC Products Inc. Leaves Reno to Expand Operations in the Sacramento Region
Leading National Manufacturing Company Moves into New 22,000 Square-foot Facility in Lincoln
Lincoln, CA— GC Products Inc., a leading national construction products manufacturer with products specified in cutting-edge building designs for companies such as Samsung, Apple, Westin Hotels and Thunder Valley Casino Resort will leave Reno, Nevada and expand operations in Lincoln, California.
The company will be expanding into a newly renovated, 22,000-square foot facility in Lincoln’s Aviation Business Park and boosting its local workforce by adding around 20 jobs. The company made the decision to relocate back to the Sacramento region to be closer to its customer base and to take advantage of the region’s abundant and highly skilled workforce.
“We are thrilled to be expanding operations back in the Sacramento region. Lincoln’s economic development group has done an outstanding job facilitating the relocation,” GC Products CEO John Coburn said. “We have received a tremendous amount of support not only from the City of Lincoln, but from business groups around the Sacramento region.”
Aviation Business Park is a 2 million square-foot employment center in Lincoln developed and managed by Buzz Oates Enterprises. GC Products Inc. will join a mix of tenants including San Francisco Bay Coffee Co., Gulfstream, Shari’s Berries, Verifone, Cokeva, TransPak and PRIDE Industries.
“For more than 150 years, the City of Lincoln has been a welcome home to high- quality construction product manufacturing companies,” Stan Nader, Lincoln’s Mayor said. “GC Products already has an operation in Lincoln and knows the region’s business climate will support its continued growth.”
The Greater Sacramento Economic Council worked in close coordination with GC Products Inc. and the City of Lincoln to support the relocation and expansion process.
“We want to continue showing companies the value proposition and the importance of expanding in the Sacramento region,” Greater Sacramento Economic Council CEO Barry Broome said. “This is a perfect example of a company who is leveraging the Northern California Megaregion— customers are located in the Bay Area while operations are in the Sacramento region, which mitigates high costs and allows a quality life style for their employees.”
GC Products Inc. expects to hire around 30 people over the next two years. The company has worked on global and national projects such as Edmonton Hockey Area, Parq Casino Vancouver BC, Google, Linkedin and Palladio at Broadstone in Folsom, CA.
