Redmond is hoping they can lure Nike to build a facility in their city.

 

Jon Stark with Redmond Economic Development says they believe Redmond is a perfect location for some of Nike's projects.  “We still have yet to learn exactly what Nike’s growth  potential is and where they're going to grow. Is it executive, is it engineering, is it development, is it manufacturing? Because Redmond lends itself very well to manufacturers, because of its available space, very competitive prices and incentives.  And proximity to our regional airport."

 

Stark says they are building a strategy to present to the company in the next few weeks.

 

The challenge, he says, is that almost every city in Oregon is also vying for a piece of the Nike pie.
