The Cavist Corporation has united its sister companies Cavist Machines and Cavist Manufacturing under one roof by purchasing a building at 9290 Prototype Drive in Reno, Nev., with assistance from Nevada State Development Corporation (NSDC).
The Cavist Corporation was incorporated in 1998 to bring Low Pressure Molding to the United States. Over time, they were leasing seven different units in Longley Business Park with each being 2,200 square feet. The new 30,000-square-foot facility is allowing them to consolidate the two companies, increase manufacturing capacity and add personal.
Cavist Machines was started 15 years ago and Cavist Manufacturing is an expansion that was started in 2008 after the vast knowledge that was acquired about the Low Pressure Molding process prompted customer requests for Cavist to mold on a contract basis.
“A business like Cavist Corporation is important to Nevada,” said Brian Wallace, business development officer for NSDC. “We were glad to assist the owners to obtain an approximately $2.5 million SBA loan package to buy the building. We partnered with US Bank to get it done.”
Cavist Manufacturing is now a full-service contract manufacturer for Low Pressure Molding. Reimer Hansen, president of Cavist Manufacturing explains that basically the company waterproofs fragile electronics in such industries as medical, automotive, computer, etc. They have two different businesses. Cavist Manufacturing fills customer requests for Cavist to mold on a contract basis. Cavist Machines sells machines that allow businesses to do Low Pressure Molding in-house.
The company ships their machines all over the world. Hansen figures they export half of the equipment that they build in Reno. They market from their website http://cavist.com, trade shows and word of mouth. Hansen‘s company is thrilled to be in a great location and under one roof.
