PULLMAN, Washington—Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories is purchasing 150 acres of land southwest of Moscow, Idaho, on Highway 95 near CHS Primeland.
The land, which is being sold by Deesten Farms LLC, will be used to accommodate the Pullman-based company’s future growth.
According to SEL Vice President of Property Jana Schultheis, SEL builds about one building per year across its locations.
“We are down to 20-buildable acres left on our Pullman campus and have been looking for the right parcel,” said Schultheis. “The search included locations in Pullman, Lewiston, and Moscow.”
“This location will be a great fit for our future growth,” said SEL Chief Business and Financial Officer Joey Nestegard. “It’s close to our headquarters and our manufacturing operations in Pullman and Lewiston. We love this region and have many employees who live in Moscow, suppliers who are nearby and have close ties to the community and universities on both sides of the border.”
SEL is working with local officials to annex and rezone the land from Latah County to the City of Moscow. No firm building plans are in place at this time. The company will continue to evaluate its business needs and share news of project plans as they develop.
