Boeing Realty Corp. today announced the sale of a surplus Boeing building in Pueblo, Colo. to L. B. Foster Company. The Sept. 16 transaction helps Boeing improve its operational efficiency and the use of its assets.
"We are pleased to see this building develop into a new opportunity for the Pueblo community to grow and prosper," said Denise Garcia transaction manager for Boeing Realty.

The building is a class "B" manufacturing facility with approximately 52,000 square feet of usable space, sub-divided into 25 percent office and 75 percent manufacturing and warehouse. The manufacturing area has a 18-foot clear height. Other amenities include a large training room, an extensive IT infrastructure and handicapped accessibility.
The buyer, L.B. Foster Company (NASDAQ: FSTR), is a leading manufacturer, fabricator and distributor of products for transportation, construction, utility and energy industries. "This new facility positions us to better serve our railroad customers throughout the United States," said Stan Hasselbusch, President/CEO, L.B. Foster Company. "We are pleased to continue to increase our role in the Pueblo business community's growing success and look forward to establishing operations in our new facility."
