Local dignitaries toasted high-tech company 2Wire and the Nevada City Tech Center during an open house and ribbon cutting event at western Nevada County’s newest business park Thursday.

“This is a great day in Nevada City. It’s the next step in the evolution of the community,” Nevada City Mayor Steve Cottrell said.

The engineering hub of 2Wire recently moved from the Whispering Pines business area. The San Jose-based company provides broadband service delivery platforms. The Nevada City Tech Center, on Providence Mine Road on land formerly owned by Grass Valley Group, was developed by Robert Upton of San Rafael-based Campus Properties LLC.

2Wire employs 34 engineers locally, but expects to add another 20 to 25 people shortly, said Steve Maher, vice president of engineering.

The company expects to generate $350 million in sales this year, Maher said.

Business condominiums will be the newest addition to the complex. Lawyers and insurance agents have shown interest in the smaller spaces designed to be proprietor owned, Upton said.
