Bus company signs deal with Port of Woodland

Noahs Ark, a motor coach company owned by Noah and Pat Wessinger of Woodland, is moving to a Port of Woodland building in August, signing a seven-year lease.

Noahs Ark is moving into the port’s newest facility, which was built in 2009 and covers nearly four acres of property in the port’s Schurman Way Industrial Park in northwest Woodland, less than one mile from access to Interstate 5. Noahs Ark is a Woodland-based company that brings 42 jobs, including 25 coach operators, and has seen continued growth even during the recent recession. For more information, visit www.noahsbus.com.

The Port of Woodland, which celebrated its 50th year in 2010, owns more than 300 acres of property for light industrial and recreational opportunities in south Cowlitz County along the Columbia and Lewis Rivers.
