Businesses Flock to New Mexico Amid Film Industry Boom
February 11th, 2021 – As New Mexico’s film production has ballooned, a number of ancillary businesses that support the industry are adding to the success.
In the last few years, businesses not necessarily affiliated with a production studio have expanded into New Mexico to provide support for prop making, set creations and costume making.
Before 2019, Reynolds Advanced Materials had U.S. locations in Dallas, Hollywood and Atlanta before opening shop in Albuquerque. The decision to expand into New Mexico came immediately after Netflix and NBC Universal announced major expansion plans in Albuquerque, according to Reynolds Advanced Materials specialist Brandon Green.
“From an overall film standpoint, I definitely believe Albuquerque is on the map and will just keep growing,” Green said.
