NW Innovation Works leases corporate office space at Port of Kalama

Northwest Innovation Works this week signed a three-year lease agreement for approximately 6,000 square feet of office space at the Port of Kalama. The company will lease the building that formerly housed the Port of Kalama administrative offices at 380 W. Marine Drive.

The lease paves the way for NW Innovation Works to move its corporate offices to the port. This comes after a vote in April by port commission to approve a lease agreement with the company to build and operate a manufacturing plant on port property that would produce methanol from natural gas after receiving environmental and regulatory approvals.

“The initial lease with Northwest Innovation Works last spring for the methanol plant was a landmark opportunity for the Port, and we are equally delighted that the executive team has chosen to move their headquarters to Kalama,” said Port of Kalama Commission President Randy Sweet.
