Traeger Pellet Grills, the largest grill manufacturer west of the Mississippi, is opening a new facility in Wilsonville and officials expect production to begin as early as this month. The company just finished its 20th year of designing and manufacturing wood pellet grills, which are sold nationwide as well as overseas. Traeger has over 100 employees and Bruce Bjorkman, marketing director for the company, says he hopes that many of its employees will relocate with the company to Wilsonville. “It is impossible to predict how many, if any, additional positions will need to be filled prior to our move,” he added. Although the new facility will house manufacturing, accounting and administration, the existing Silverton office will remain the sales and marketing headquarters and the commercial grill production line will continue to operate in Mt. Angel.
