Bowman Development played an important initial role in bringing Hitachi Rail to Washington County. Don Bowman said after first being made aware of the site requirement for this project in late 2020 we made a determined effort to help convince Hitachi’s consultants that Washington County was a good fit. The site requirements were not the easiest to meet and we were pleased to find a property which was also agreeable to Hitachi. From then on, we were part of a team helping to make the project happen. It was a complex project. Mr. Bowman felt the project was important to the County to help diversify the employment base by welcoming a high-quality manufacturer to Washington County. We also felt that by cooperating with the County, the extension of Halfway Blvd. will help with traffic and open additional land for future industrial development.
We would be amiss not to recognize the role of the civil engineering firm of Frederick, Seibert & Associates, especially Dave Trostle, project manager, who worked closely with client and Bowman; often taking the lead coordinating with all the stakeholders.
This project will bring over 400 new employment opportunities to Washington County and help sustain over 1,300 jobs in the region.
