With the mission statement, “Building Better Places to Go!” Public Restroom Co. purchased a 40,000-square-foot factory, and began building turn-key prefabricated restrooms and related buildings in Minden.
The first 57,000-pound restroom building has been completed and was transported fully finished to a job site in California on Tuesday.
With the move to Minden, the company has expanded its work force in all areas of business.
“From hiring skilled trade employees for the factory, to expanding the sales team to help supply the demand of the manufacturing cycle,” said Project Development Manager Kelly Ellis, “Public Restroom Co. has created local jobs and foresees continued growth throughout 2014 and years to come.”
Principal Chuck Kaufman said it has been a dream of his to open a Nevada-based factory. He operates the company with his son, Chad Kaufman and daughter, Katie Sherin, along with almost 50 employees.
Since 1973, Kaufman has built public park restrooms with standardized floor plans and flexible exterior architecture.
“During the last 41 years he has pioneered innovations to combat vandalism, reduce maintenance, improve the user satisfaction and function, code-compliant, flexible designs, and provide an odor free building,” according to statement issued by the company.
Current project areas in Nevada: City of Sparks, Washoe County, City of Fernley, Clark County, City of Las Vegas, and City of North Las Vegas. For more information, visit www.PublicRestroomCompany.com or like them at www.facebook.com/publicrestroomcompany.
