An Australian company that handles human tissue will open its Las Vegas branch around the third quarter of 2019.
The company, Tissue Life, will move into a building near the intersection of Eastern Avenue and Sunset Road, CEO Chad Ronholdt said.
Clark County issued a permit for $1.3 million worth of work on the building.
The company received about $221,000 in tax abatements last year from the Governor’s Office of Economic Development.
The company processes human tissue — donated after death by next-of-kin — and then distributes the tissue to medical device companies and to hospitals and surgeons for tissue transplants.
