The city has approved a request to close a portion of Mulino Road near its intersection with South Township as part of the continuing construction on Stanton Furniture’s new 166,000-square-foot manufacturing and distribution facility in the Canby industrial park.
The request by the project’s contractor, Walen Construction, requested the road’s closure from Monday, May 10, through Friday, June 18, and will be in effect 24 hours a day.
The Canby Fire District signed off on the closure, saying they will still have full emergency and fire access to the Stanton site and surrounding properties.
Stanton is a family-owned and -operated furniture manufacturer known for its high-quality sofas, recliners and other home furnishings, which are designed with unique features to add comfort, durability and customer satisfaction, and come with a lifetime guarantee.
Over the past 40 years, Stanton has manufactured more upholstered furniture than any other company based in the Pacific Northwest.
The new facility will be mostly warehouse space along with about 6,500 square feet of office space and 6,500 square feet of storage. The project would also include employee parking, 36 loading docks (most of them along Mulino Road) and a yard area, as well as required landscaping.
The facility will become the new home base of the company as they relocate their approximately 300 employees and the entirety of their operations, currently based in Tualatin.
