21st Century Water Technologies Division moving to Scottsbluff
With a positive recommendation from the city of Scottsbluff's L.B. 840 committee, the City Council Monday evening accepted a purchase offer from 21st Century Equipment for the steel building on the former Aurora Loan Services property. Both 21st Centruy Equipment and Ron Bright submitted sealed bids of slightly over the minimum $400,000 for the property.
The committee's Jim Trumbull told the Council that both proposals were great, and that it was a tough decision. Trumbull said the 21st Century Equipment offer was aligned closer with wages and benefits needed. Trumbull said the committee looks at that aspect very hard, and gave kudos to Palm and his staff for the great wages and benefits package offered by 21st Century Equipment. Trumbull told the Council their benefits package was second to none.
Company CEO Owen Palm says they will be moving their water technologies division into the building, which is located east of the office building on the property.
Palm said the Water Technologies Division currently employs 15 full time employees, and he says and their projection is to add around 3 employees a year in the future.
Just this past week 21st Century Equipment closed on the $100,000 purchase of the office building on the property, which will be used as the corporate and administrative headquarters for the company when renovations are completed later this summer.
