Schweitzer Engineering will open Spokane Valley office

Renovations are expected to be complete by September for Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories' new Spokane Valley office.
The engineering and manufacturing company based in Pullman is renovating a 7,000-square-foot office space at 3808 Sullivan Road. The company will lease the space, which formerly was a National Car Rental office, from Crown West Realty, a news release from Schweitzer Engineering said.

The office will primary be used for research and development, but with all the employees “who commute from the Spokane area, we are exploring lots of options,” said Dave Whitehead, vice president of research and development. “If they can do their job functions from there, it makes sense to have them work in the office nearest to their homes.”
Within the past year, Schweitzer Engineering built a 109,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Lewiston, Idaho, also largely to accommodate commuting employees. Some 132 people work there.
The Spokane Valley office will accommodate up to 48 people.
Schweitzer Engineering is a 100 percent employee-owned company with 51 domestic offices, 42 international offices, three U.S. manufacturing facilities and one in Mexico. The company employs more than 3,400 people worldwide, the release said.
