It’s a sign that the economy is steadily picking up. Dent Industries, is a green energy company that makes recorders for utility companies. They will be moving into the old Columbia River bank building on Emkay Drive. "We identified that for Dent Industries, and they went ahead and got control of it through some negotiations at an incredible price. 50% of the price that it would cost to rebuild that building today is the price that they eventually purchased the building for. And what's perfect for this is: there a green company, they're adding jobs, and now they acquired this facility and that will enable them to continue to grow." Darren Powderly with Compass Commercial Real Estate, who represented Dent Industries in the sale, says Dent Industries now has room to expand and bring more high skilled, high tech jobs to Bend. Powderly was a guest on Wednesday morning's "Your Town" on KBND.
