It was a bit of a dark day in Sept. 2016 when ITT Tech closed their doors nationwide with many students still enrolled. But time is moving on and for the Spokane area's only ITT Tech campus building it looks like life will come back to it soon. An exciting Pullman based company, with an office already in Spokane Valley, will move in potentially even creating more local jobs for Spokane.
Schweitzer Engineering has purchased the 28,000 square foot single story building at 13518 E. Indiana Ave. and will remodel it to open their local office there. Schweitzer will move there from a much smaller office space in the Spokane Business & Industrial Park. While Schweitzer Engineering employs thousands company-wide, currently only about 60 are based out of the Spokane Valley office. But with this new office space the company will have room to expand, allowing Schweitzer to more then double the Spokane based workforce as sales allow.
Schweitzer Engineering or SEL as it also called designs, manufactures and supports products and services for electrical generator / transmission protection and distribution automation / control systems. They are an employee owned company with their customers coming from a wide range of industries and geographic locations.
The company plans to be operating out of the former ITT Tech building by sometime this fall. for more information on Schweitzer Engineering, visit their website at-
