Bridge Masters, Inc. is expanding/moving their corporate headquarters to Redmond, which will create an anticipated 30 jobs in the community. Those jobs will be a combination of manufacturing, construction, management and administrative positions.
Bridge Masters has been in business in Central Oregon since 2008. Starting as a specialty construction company, it has expanded its services to include its own type of Under Bridge Access equipment and Nationwide Rentals.
The company was issued a U.S. Patent for the BridgeWalker Type II in 2017 and is in Patent Pending stage with the BridgeWalker Type I-Track Unit.
The new 26,000-square-foot building will allow all three companies to expand and take advantage of opportunities that their products and services provide. The new Redmond facility will primarily cater to manufacturing of the BridgeWalker machines and servicing the fleet for Bridge Masters Rentals. Since construction services are provided primarily out of State, the building will house executive and support staff.
Strategically located, BMI utilizes the Crooked River Pedestrian Bridge for training and QC purposes. As to not rely too heavily on the Crooked River Bridge, they plan to build a bridge on site for day-to-day use.
