The Company and City Officials announced the news on Thursday.

Explaining the reason behind selecting El Paso, Roger Seaman, vice president of operations and co-owner of the company said that, “We did search for other areas to expand the operations, but, we preferred  El Paso because it’s a major trade corridor with Mexico and has a very well developed infrastructure.” He also praise the local government of the city.

Expressing his view on the expansion plan,  Cary Westin, director of economic and international development for the city, said the company provides services and products that manufactures in this area need and have been going out of El Paso to get it.

The details of the city’s proposed tax incentives will not be revealed till the time they visit City Council for approval on Tuesday, Westin added.
