At SBIP . . . Fabricator to Construct New Facility

By Linn Parish

Precision Cutting Technologies, a Spokane Valley fabricator that specializes in laser and water-jet cutting, has bought a 1.8-acre parcel of vacant land in the Spokane Business & Industrial Park, in Spokane Valley, and plans to build a new facility for itself there.

Clint Grassel, who owns Precision Cutting with his wife, Brenda, says the planned 10,000-square-foot building will be built along LaCrosse Lane in the North Park portion of the large industrial park, east of the new FedEx Ground/FedEx Home Delivery distribution facility that’s being built.

Grassel says Precision Cutting hopes to move into its new facility next spring from smaller, leased quarters at 9922 E. Montgomery, in Spokane Valley.

The total cost of the new building is expected to be about $600,00. Haskins Co., of Spokane, is the design-build contractor for the project.

In addition to the new structure, Precision Cutting has agreed to buy a $400,000 Cincinnati Inc.-brand laser cutter. Grassel says the cutter will allow the company to cut substantially larger pieces of material than it can with the two cutters it currently uses.

Precision Cutting uses laser and waterjet technology to make custom cuts in a variety of materials, such as granite, glass, and stainless steel. Its customers include sign makers, tile companies, artists, and a number of industrial users.

Earl Engle, of Tomlinson Black Commercial Inc., handled the land transaction.
