EMCO High Voltage Corp. completes Minden expansion

EMCO High Voltage Corp. has completed the expansion of its Minden manufacturing facility. Adding 50 percent more space, the expansion demonstrates the company’s commitment to its Nevada operations and sets the stage to respond to increasing demands for its products.

Starting with seven employees in 2010, EMCO now employs more than 30 production and engineering staff members at its Minden facility. By expanding, the company can support additional sales growth.

“Our Nevada operation has been a critical component of our strategic growth plans,” said President and CEO Mike Doherty. “The quality of our Nevada team members, the responsiveness of local government agencies, and the effectiveness of contractors have added up to a positive business experience that makes it clear we made the right choice to locate in Douglas County.”

For more than 40 years the company has been designing and manufacturing high voltage power supply products.

County offers new job application process

Douglas County has launched a new software system to improve the hiring process for job seekers and personnel managers.

Interested candidates can apply for current vacancies or sign up for new openings that become available.

Douglas County has partnered with NEOGOV, the nation’s largest cloud software for human resources in government and education. Using this technology, HR and department managers can access online records to expedite hiring and provide greater accountability when selecting new employees.

“This new software streamlines the job search and application process for job seekers” said Norma Santoyo, Douglas County human resources manager. “Instead of applying for multiple job openings at once, candidates can submit multiple applications all electronically.”

The new system also allows human resources to more effectively create minimum qualifications to sort through a pool of applicants. With the new system, administrative work and technical maintenance costs are reduced as this workload is handled by the NEOGOV system.

Computers have been installed in the lobby at the Minden Inn where interested candidates can apply for Douglas County positions, Santoyo said. The computers give direct access to NEOGOV.

Douglas County joined more than 1,000 organizations across the nation which have moved into cutting edge online technology for personnel management, Santoyo said.
