YUMA, AZ - It was a day of celebration amongst partners as the Arizona Commerce Authority presented a grant for $460,000 to Insultech as the new Yuma business officially opened its doors.

Yuma City Administrator, Greg Wilkinson,  tells News 13 "This company has a lot of potential for growth. So, not only are they going to be hiring some people initially, but I think there is good potential for them to expand in the future." Wilkinson says the new business is just one of many success stories in bringing jobs to the community to help the local economy and expand its economic base.

With Insultech's new presence in Yuma County the company is bringing 60 or more jobs to the community. The company manufactures high temperature insulation composites and components for various types of engines including diesel, natural gas, steam and gas turbines.

Tom Bercaw, the President of Insultech says, they are happy to expand their business to the Yuma community and get people working. He says, "Right now we are trying to feel some of our manufacturing positions, some of the sewing machines operators and basic welders and seam welders."

Bercaw says they are also looking to hire engineers and positions in customer service and are actively working with the Yuma Private Industry Council.  He says,"We're excited to be here in the City of Yuma. We are excited to get this factory fully operational and get people to work. We know the people here are ready to work and were excited to have them on board."
