Schnitzer Steel Industries Inc. has announced plans to move its corporate headquarters from the northwest industrial area of Portland, Ore., to the KOIN Center in downtown Portland.
The company says the move will allow the company to increase its productivity by providing its employees with a single, unified location rather than the two separate locations the company currently uses.
Schnitzer says it expects to make the move by Aug. 1, 2013.
“We are pleased that Schnitzer Steel’s headquarters will remain in Portland,” says Tamara Lundgren, Schnitzer president and CEO. “Our move to downtown Portland reflects our need to consolidate our offices and to provide transportation alternatives to our employees. We appreciate our working relationship with the new administration of the city of Portland and the KOIN Center.”
