A new era is underway in Southern Nevada as Oasis Biotech, now one of the nation’s largest indoor hydroponic vertical farming facilities of its kind, is proud to announce that it has officially taken root in Las Vegas, bringing hundreds of jobs, millions in local investment dollars and some of the most nutritious and flavorful produce in the world.

Founded in 2017, the company plans to leverage its 215,000-square-foot facility, proprietary state-of-the-art technology, precise growing methods, and highly qualified team of experts to fulfill their mission to “Feed the World. Better.”

“The crops grown at our facility will be some of the best tasting, most nutrient-rich and environmentally sustainable crops in the world,” says Brock Leach, Chief Operating Officer and General Manager at Oasis Biotech. “Completion of phase 1 of the new facility alone will allow us to provide Las Vegas restaurants and eventually grocers with over a million pounds of produce per year.”

According to Leach, produce can travel more than 1,500 miles before it ever reaches a consumer, which means a significant loss in nutrients and flavor.

“We want to redefine the meaning of fresh produce to Las Vegas,” says Leach. “We are now living in a world where the produce your family consumes will be grown in the same city in which they live and eaten almost immediately following harvest.”

Drawing on the expertise of a management team that includes some of the nation’s top experts in hydroponic crop production, Oasis Biotech’s indoor farm brought new life to a vacant industrial property that once housed a distribution facility and call center.

Now the company is gearing up for rapid growth.

It’s recruiting skilled agricultural professionals and technicians from across the nation to support its massive investment in the region.

In its current state, the company has brought over 100 jobs to Southern Nevada and plans to invest nearly $30 million into the region’s economy within its first year — all of it into a highly sustainable business model that further diversifies the region’s economy.

“Today, agriculture accounts for only a tiny portion of the employment in Clark County, roughly 0.15 percent of all the jobs in the area,” says Leach. “Our technology and ability to help feed the world with highly sustainable practices are attracting a highly motivated team of modern-day farmers from around the world.”
