Mohave County supervisors have approved zoning and plan amendment requests to allow Scott Industries to set up shop in the Golden Valley area. The company has been leasing space at the Kingman Airport Industrial Park but wants to build, own and operate its own prefabrication pipe and plastic product facility.

“We are optimistic that this will be approved and we are looking forward to being an asset to the community,” Scot Industries’ President Steve Wilmeth said during the July 3 Board of Supervisors meeting.

Supervisors embraced and approved the project proposed near the center of a 265-acre parcel south of the Walnut Creek Estates subdivision.

“Golden Valley has been asking me for economic development and jobs,” supervisor Jean Bishop said.

“I believe this is a great private sector employment opportunity to supplement my constituent’s pocketbook and grow the county tax base and I think this company is going to be a good neighbor out there.”

Kathy Tackett-Hicks, an agent for the project, said the company intends to build a 76,000 sq. ft. facility that would employ 15-18 people.
