Green River Lands Utah Company

Green River, WY – The expansion of a West Jordan, Utah company into Green River was announced this week. NuTech Specialties is a company that distributes and manufacturers commercial cleaning supplies. Growing sales in southwestern Wyoming prompted NuTech to look at opening a branch in Green River. Stephen Heavener is the Executive Director of the economic development group Green River Futures. Heavener says Nutech will only create three to five jobs, but he thinks their presence does a lot for the perception of Green River. Heavener says this is the type of company they are trying to recruit. He says they are targeting smaller, privately-held firms that are growing; and looking specifically to the Wasatch Front of Utah. Heavener says they are in negotiations with a medical assembly company that could bring 20 to 30 jobs to Green River. He gives that project about a 50 to 60 percent chance of happening, at this point.
