Work on the new Las Vegas base for slot machine maker Aristocrat Technologies Inc officially got under way on Friday with a ground breaking ceremony attended by Nevada’s Governor Brian Sandoval (pictured 3rd right, front).
Also in attendance was Matt Wilson (pictured 3rd left, front), managing director of Americas for Aristocrat Technologies.
Aristocrat’s new campus will consist of two, three-storey buildings and house more than 600 employees, according to a press release issued after the ceremony. The site will be a base for serving casinos in the commercial sector across North America, Latin America and the Caribbean.
In a June 13 press statement previewing the ground breaking, Aristocrat Technologies said the new campus at Summerlin on the western outskirts of Las Vegas would consolidate the Las Vegas-based workforce on one site and should be ready by late 2018.
The campus is described as being of 180,000 square feet (16,723 sq metres) and will consist of two buildings, each of approximately 90,000 sq ft.
