Peterson Machinery plans move to Fruit Valley




VANCOUVER — A heavy machinery company has applied to build two buildings near the intersection of Northwest Lower River Road and Northwest 32nd Avenue.

According to a preapplication filed with the city of Vancouver, Peterson Machinery Co. aims to build two buildings to support its business with power generation, marine engines, truck engines and industrial engine applications.

One main building will be about 74,000 square feet, with shop space, training and conference rooms, lockers, warehouse space and rental services. The secondary building will stand 7,200 square feet and operate as support space.

The buildings will be in use between 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., according to the application, with about 310 daily trips. Employee and visitor parking will be built.

Clark County property records show the lot to be 10.4 acres, belonging to a group called 2600 LLC, based in Cornelius, Ore.

Applicants will meet next with city planners Oct. 5. For more information, contact Andrew Reule at or 360-487-7891.
