iBee, a leader in athletic gear, today announced an ambitious project to create a 100,000 square foot manufacturing facility powered entirely by wind. Situated just outside one of the world’s windiest cities in Cape Blanco, Oregon, the new facility will harness the often 15mph sustained winds to generate the power necessary to run the facility non-stop for 10 hours per day.
A ground breaking ceremony will take place next week and is open to the public. In addition to the environmental benefits, the new facility will create 100 new jobs in everything from design to shipment packaging and loading.
The cutting-edge project is being led by a longtime leader in environmental-friendly architecture. The mostly glass facility, designed to allow anyone in the area to have a peek inside iBee, will house not only manufacturing but also a new Design Center.
