475

Greater Portland Inc. recently announced Diamond WTG Engineering & Services Inc., a division of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. has relocated its headquarters to Portland, Oregon, from California.

The company provides products, services, and engineering expertise for onshore renewable assets — namely wind turbines. Diamond has sold 3,615 onshore wind turbines across the U.S. and remains committed to the owners of those wind turbines, who are among the largest owners of renewable assets in the country.

The relocation process began in 2017 and was completed in early 2019. Diamond will occupy more than 10,000 square feet of office space in downtown Portland, where staff will support its engineering, accounting, supply-chain, and commercial functions, as well as Diamond’s operational and inventory facilities in Texas and New Mexico. The Portland office is at 1618 SW First Ave.

Diamond chose to relocate to Portland due to its proximity to MHI customers, access to local engineering and other professional talent, lower real estate costs, excellent mass transit system, long-standing civic and cultural relationship between Portland and Japan, and availability of nonstop flights between PDX and Tokyo.

The firm’s investment in the Greater Portland region represents yet another foreign direct investment in the region from a firm with roots in Japan. More than 140 Japanese companies are located in Greater Portland.

The company’s recruitment was also supported by GPI partners Business Oregon, Portland General Electric and Prosper Portland.
