A company currently based in Colorado is moving to Laramie. Veritek, which is currently located in Littleton, Colo., is in the process of relocating to the Gem City and plans to start operations in August.

“We plan to be in full operation by the second week of August if all goes as planned,” owner, James Wilkinson, said.

Veritek will be operating out of a leased 6,000 square foot building in the Laramie Rivers Business Park 1, which is in West Laramie.

The company is made up of several companies including Veritek Inc., Veritek EMP, eWaveTek and Wilkinson Tactical. These companies provide a full spectrum of product and process engineering, manufacturing in the USA, building working prototypes for products with 3D printing process, consumer product and medical device manufacturing, advanced nano-technology for clean coal, and mining operations.

In addition, a shotgun design is also in the process and will be launched after relocating to Laramie.

“Jim Wilkinson and his group of companies are a good fit for Laramie.  His expansion plans are significant and will add several new jobs in the future.  We are pleased and excited that they have selected Laramie for their headquarters,” Dan Furphy, Laramie Chamber Business Alliance President & CEO said.

The tax structure and possible assistance were large factors for moving to Wyoming. Laramie specifically was selected due to the resources and possible partnerships with the University of Wyoming, Western Research Institute, and Wyoming Technology Business Center.

Wilkinson is already starting to use local suppliers. “I believe strongly about using local suppliers. I hope local suppliers will also use us,” Wilkinson said.

As Wilkinson settles in Laramie, he has goals to grow with new facilities and more employees.
