Tour

So I recently had the opportunity to go on a tour of the Now Foods building out in Sparks. Seems like it's a new manufacturing and distribution facility that opened in the last year or so. I'm surprised that the company picked Northern Nevada as a location for anything really since this place is a hole. Either way it was a fairly clean facility and they seemed well-funded relatively speaking. I actually saw a few employees there of whom I worked with at a different company. They looked like they were more occupied and busy verses the last time I saw them; kudos for employment. But yeah this pic is from a vitamin-filling machine. Pretty badass how it has lasers to count the number of pills going in and auto twisters for the caps and labels. Go automation.
