Australia-based Aristocrat Gaming recently began construction on its new 265,240 square-foot pokie machine production facility located in Henderson, Nevada.
The property’s layout is split between production warehouse facilities and some office space.
Over 150 Aristocrat employees, sporting purple shirts were in attendance at the ground-breaking ceremony that was headed up by the company’s top brass and Henderson’s Mayor, Debra March. The facility is expected to begin operations in 2023.
Several other dignitaries showed up for the occasion, including Dane Hudson, the Special Projects & Grants Director at the Office of Senator Jacky Rosen and a couple of other district directors, along with Scott Muelrath, the president and CEO of the Henderson Chamber of Commerce.
Aristocrat’s President of Americas and EMEA, Tom O’Brien said,
“We are thrilled to build our new manufacturing facility in Henderson as we continue to refine our efficiencies and provide the best product. We have complete confidence that our team members will use this new facility to its full capacity to create the best experience for our customers for years to come.”
Deanne McKissick, the Senior Vice President of Customer Order Execution at Aristocrat added,
“This will be our Las Vegas Integration Centre from which we will ship the company’s EGMs (electronic gaming machines) to locations in the United States, Canada, Latin America, and, Europe,”
The new Las Vegas Integration Center is not Aristocrat’s only project in the area. The company already operates a two-building campus in Summerlin, Las Vegas.
Aristocrat’s iconic legacy includes the highly popular Buffalo franchise, Dollar Storm, Dragon Link, Lightning Link, and a host of branded pokies based on properties like Dune, FarmVille, and The Walking Dead.
The location of the new manufacturing centre will be off Volunteer Boulevard at Pollack Street, sandwiched between the M Resort and the Las Vegas Raiders team HQ.
