Pride Industries to open first phase of Lincoln warehouse on Wednesday

Pride Industries, the Roseville nonprofit that provides jobs for people with disabilities, will formally open the first phase of a new Lincoln warehouse on Wednesday.

Ribbon-cutting ceremonies are set for 4 p.m. at 3015 Venture Drive, just east of Highway 65 and Lincoln Regional Airport.

Pride announced last week that it will move into the existing warehouse in two phases, the first encompassing 75,000 square feet and bringing 35 to 40 jobs to Lincoln. Over the next year, Pride will transition into the second phase of about 100,000 square feet of space, with an anticipated 150 full- and part-time jobs.

“We look forward to partnering with Lincoln to create job opportunities, specifically for individuals with disabilities,” said Vic Wursten, Pride’s senior vice president of rehabilitation services.

Pride offers an array of supply chain solutions, logistics management and manufacturing services to multiple industries and markets. It operates in 14 states and Washington, D.C., employing more than 5,600.
