Structus Building Technologies and Warm Springs Composite Products are both up for "Manufacturing Company of the Year” awards by the Portland Business Journal. 

 

Economic Development for Central Oregon nominated the companies for the annual award - spokesperson Ruth Lindley says they are very proud that two of the 11 companies under consideration come from Central Oregon:  "Well, we looked at a number of different companies in Central Oregon  that were doing innovative things and that were growing. And we selected both Structus and Warm Springs Composite Products for doing things in a new and different way and being successful."

 

Structus has a very innovative product that helps install drywall and Warm Spring's Composite Products primarily manufacturers fire-rated building components and specialized wood products.

 

Lindley says the fact that Central Oregon is so well represented for the award makes our region that much more attractive to new businesses considering a move.

 

The awards will be announced on Thursday.
