PULLMAN – Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories has donated $150,000 to the American Red Cross for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, the company said in a new release.

The company also said it is offering customers a price reduction and expedited shipping for products bound for the affected areas along the Gulf Coast.

SEL has five branch offices in Texas, with 52 employees in Houston. The company also has sales representatives and numerous customers in the region.

“Our customers in the electric power industry really go above and beyond in times of need, working under the most difficult circumstances and often sending their personnel into harms’ way to get the lights back on,” said David Costello, vice president of sales and customer service, who works out of SEL’s office in Fair Oaks Ranch, Texas. “We are proud to do our part by making it easier for them to get the products they need by cutting the prices, expediting deliveries, and mobilizing employees to be on call for technical support.”

SEL manufactures high-tech equipment for electric power transmission and distribution that’s sold to utilities and large-volume power users. In the Inland Northwest, the company employs 2,330 people in Pullman and 475 in Lewiston.
