Welcome CVMR!

WestGate Lodging would like to welcome CVMR-Canada to Oak Ridge! We are very excited that this company has picked Oak Ridge for their new home. The company is moving from Toronto. CMVR operates in 18 countries and manufactures high-purity metal powders and super alloys. The headquarters will be in the former Theragenics building at Horizon Center in West Oak Ridge.

The first employee has already been hired. And the plans are to bring 620 jobs to Oak Ridge. They could put 218 people to work right away and add 402 manufacturing jobs later. It is great news for East Tennessee. According to Randy Boyd, the new commissioner of Tennessee Economic and Community Development, this is the start of a new wave!

There could be about 120 PhD researchers at the company’s new Oak Ridge headquarters. The company has commitments to manufacture by June 2015. Operations will begin by the end of May 2015. They will use ore to make pure metal products which will be used by manufacturers to make parts, such NASA and the US Department of Defense.

The Horizon Center entrance is only 1.8 miles from WestGate Lodging. We are excited to have CMVR as neighbors. And for anyone relocating to the Oak Ridge area for CVMR, we would love to have you come stay here at WestGate. WestGate offers long and short term furnished apartments with all utilities, cable, wifi, local phone service and weekly maid service included. Our Apartments include linens, pots and pans, dishes and all cooking utensils. We also have ethernet outlets in all apartments. We have a beautiful courtyard with a large pool. Directly across the street there are nature trails for walking, running, or biking. There is also an onsite coin operated Laundry room. It is quiet here and you are still only 4 miles from restaurants and shopping centers. It is a great time to get into an Oak Ridge Apartment here at WestGate, as we upgrading, and plan to add onsite equipment for volleyball, badminton, horseshoes, and bean bag toss ( cornhole). We also have grills by the pool for guest use. It will make for a great weekend to spend the days playing and swimming and then relaxing by the pool and the afternoon with a steak on the grill. WestGate offers a community for family fun. And the best part is you get all this for less than a hotel room. We look forward to welcoming you all to Oak Ridge!
