J.L. Griffin, CEO of the Economic Development Corp. of Clark County, said in a Tuesday meeting that he is in talks with at least five companies interested in bringing jobs to Clark County.
“Each one of these have told me not to comment or make any kind of a statement about what the name of their company is,” Griffin said. “I have talked to some of these companies more than two or three times on the phone. Some have called back more than once and we gave them some more information.”
The companies’ code names are:
Project “Big Fish”
The last project mentioned, “Innovex”, has been discussed publicly in previous EDCCC meetings. The company produces a charge used underground to tap oil and natural gas. While “Innovex” would manufacture a tool for the fracking industry, economic development officials are assuring there would be no fracking involved locally.
“Innovex” is interested in 70 acres of EDCCC land located on the 1,000-acre Supersite situated between Highway 67 and Interstate 30.
