With new companies looking to move into Galt, more than 50 new jobs could be created over the next several months.
It is part of the city’s ongoing push for greater economic development.
City staff have met with McLaughlin Refuse Equipment, Inc., which fabricates new waste containers, and Bar None Auction, which has discussed plans to possibly relocate from Sacramento, according to Galt City Manager Jason Behrmann.
Bar None sells used heavy equipment and machinery. The company hopes to be operational at a new site on Crystal Way this summer, but are still finalizing details.
McLaughlin Refuse Equipment has submitted plans for the manufacturing business to be located in approximately 25,000 square feet of space currently occupied by Nor Cal Beverage in the Industrial Park. The business will be located in the same building as the California Waste Recovery Systems Materials Recovery Facility/Recycling Center.
McLaughlin plans on employing up to 15 people initially and could eventually expand to 50, Behrmann said.
The business requires a conditional use permit. The application will be considered by the Planning Commission on Thursday.
McLaughlin is currently located in Lockeford and has been there since at least 2004.
Founded in 1995, the company manufactures roll-off, front load, rear load, and hazardous waste containers; self-dumping hoppers; and storage boxes.
