The big news in Nevada last week was Tesla and the State of Nevada agreeing to work together to build the $5 billion dollar battery factory a few miles east of Reno. The gigafactory is proposed to be operational in 2017, so there is a lot of construction to do before it opens. While BTmix officials are unsure if Tesla moved to Reno to be closer the the BTmix factory, BTmix has know for years that the business climate in Reno is conducive to manufacturing. Reno, Nevada is home to BTmix where they manufacture motionless mixers and static mixers.
