“AUECC is very excited to be able to call Northern Nevada home to our USA Headquarters,” said Morgan Cawthon, President, AUECC North America. “The decision to locate the first of our high tech manufacturing plants in Storey County was underscored by the tremendous support offered by Governor Sandoval’s office and the collaborative approach to business development experienced with Storey County’s permitting officials.”
