Governor Lombardo Visits Local Steel Company, LV Iron & Steel,Meets with Las Vegas Construction Industry Leaders, to Promote Value of Working with Local Suppliers, Keeping Valuable Jobs in Nevada 

Las Vegas, NV (May 24, 2024) --- Today, Governor Joe Lombardo met with local construction industry leaders while touring LV Iron & Steel to promote the value of working with local suppliers, keeping valuable jobs in Nevada.

 

Hosted by LV Iron & Steel CEO Pete Aguilar and CFO Traci Aguilar, the meeting and tour also included a number of Las Vegas construction leaders, including Kevin Burke and Thad Lawrence with Burke Construction, and Guy Martin and Wade Pope with Martin-Harris Construction, among others.

 

LV Iron & Steel, a minority-owned company, has fabricated and installed steel for many high-profile projects, including Allegiant Stadium, the Las Vegas Aces practice facility, UnCommons commercial and residential development, the new Whole Foods Market retail center in Downtown Summerlin®, and the Kroger Distribution Center, to name a few. During the tour, executives of LV Iron & Steel also provided a demonstration of how robotics are helping to increase production volume at the company while maintaining more than 150 jobs.

 

According to Pete Aguilar, the goal of the tour and meeting was to promote the fact that local companies and suppliers are capable, ready, and well positioned to work on future high-profile projects in the valley.

 

“Particularly on major projects, there is a misperception that construction services and suppliers need to be sourced from outside the state,” said Aguilar. “Southern Nevada has a rich building history with many companies like ours that are more than capable of working on large, key projects.  We appreciate the Governor’s support today as we came together to promote the value of working and sourcing locally, particularly as Southern Nevada continues to grow.”  

 

“As Nevada continues to grow, we need innovators and leaders in the construction industry now more than ever,” said Governor Lombardo. “I enjoyed my tour of LV Iron & Steel and our group discussion about growth and development opportunities in Nevada.”
