A Nevada aerospace company is promising 200 additional jobs for its Colorado operations, taking advantage of a new state tax law designed to encourage business expansion. Sierra Nevada Corp. said the jobs were part of an expansion of its Centennial offices and an increase in its capital investment in Colorado, The Denver Post reports.
The company, which has gotten hundreds of millions of dollars in sole-source military contracts and is closely tied to Nev. Gov. Jim Gibbons, was profiled in 2007 by the Las Vegas Sun. Eren Ozmen, pictured, is the company’s president. Ritter credited passage of HB09-1001 for the job increases.
