With 90% of the system components being sourced or manufactured in Oregon, and with the design team based in Portland Oregon, Mr. Lee states that “ As the LWT is the least complex, lightest gearless system on the market we offer our system with a lifetime warranty on major parts.” A first for the wind industry!
As the company currently has six (6) full time employees the goal is to add another twenty (20) family wage jobs over the next twelve (12) months.
Mr. Lee sees the Portland and Arlington areas as ideal for maintaing manufacturing jobs in Oregon. The Port of Portland and the Port of Arlington supports rail, trucking, shipping and air shipment for cost effective distribution of Genesis Wind products. “ We have been working with Genesis Wind throughout its development cycle and believe that the partnership between the County and the Company will provide a channel for adding the maufacturing, assembly and distrubution of wind systems in Arlington”, states Ms. Susie Anderson, County Planner for Gilliam County
