Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Inc. announced on Thursday its new Lewiston manufactuing plan is producing digital relays that are being shipped globally.
Since 1982 privately owned SEL has operated out of a growing Pullman, Wash., campus. Thispast January it opened a 100,000-square foot Lewiston production center.
The company employs about 120 people at that location, producing the relays that are used to control the flow of electricity on electric power utility networkes.
SEL Lewiston operates two production shifts. For now relays are only being manufactured during the morning shift. The second shift will start relay production later this year, to a company release.
