Over the years we have become an internationally recognized controlled environment supplier of sterile apparel and uniforms for bio-science, pharmaceutical, medical device, aerospace, and semiconductor companies. In a state that is fast becoming a hub for economic development and a fast-growing leader in the tech industry, we are here to serve the Las Vegas, Nevada region and beyond.
Over the past couple of years, Las Vegas has been regarded internationally as one of the best cities to develop and test autonomous vehicle technologies.

The Innovation District, established in 2016, is the hub for testing new groundbreaking Las Vegas tech in the areas of alternative energy, transportation, and social infrastructure. As a proving ground for collaboration between the city and its new technology partners in areas such as fiber, communications, and the Internet of Things, it serves as a platform for testing out what the city and its partners can achieve together.
According to the latest technology blogs, tech startups are moving to Las Vegas because of the prime location and accessibility, tax advantages, climate, and lifestyle. Dare we say the city known as the entertainment capital of the world has the potential to be the next Silicon Valley?
One particular neighborhood in Las Vegas has emerged as an example of the most successful communities in the area. According to the 2010 census, Summerlin had about 59,000 residents. Ten years later, the community has grown to almost 100,000 people. During that time, it received several national awards as one of the best places to live in the United States. A multi-day summit was held in Summerlin in mid-September 2022 to promote Las Vegas as an up-and-coming technology hub. Here are some of the reasons there has been an influx in Las Vegas start-ups:
