ATCO Structures & Logistics, based in Alberta, Canada, is opening a 200,000 sq. ft. manufacturing plant in Pocatello, Idaho. It will be the company's third U.S. plant.

"The Idaho plant will expand ATCO's manufacturing capacity in the U.S. and will help meet growing demand for our products and services throughout North America," said Harry Wilmot, CEO, ATCO Structures & Logistics. "A committed and skilled workforce will be key to the plant's success. As a result, ATCO will work with the local community to hire the most skilled trades people and production workers available."

More than 150 full-time employees will be hired to work at the plant, including carpenters, plumbers and electricians.

Several production workers and office staff will also be hired for the facility, which is expected to begin operations in June of 2012.

The company began in 1947 in Alberta, Canada when father S.D. and his son R.D. Southern started Alberta Trailer Hire to provide housing accommodations to workers in Canadas first oil boom. The parent company has evolved over the years to become a multi-national global player in various industries. The ATCO Structures & Logistics division's projects range from a 20,000 person modular workforce housing camp in Abu Dhabi, to a major acoustical treatment for a 500 MW powerplant in New York.
