Power firm finds Windsor Tech Center well-grounded

WINDSOR — The 17-acre expanse of the Windsor Tech Business Center will soon have the shop and office of Power & Communications Inc. joining its roster.

Power & Communications — a company responsible for burying utility lines — was first conceived in North Dakota 15 years ago. But for the past decade, the company has called Fort Collins home. Owners Debra and Lynn Skoglund run Power & Communications out of a leased shop on Summit View Drive.

The company’s pending move isn’t for expansion but is to move the business closer to its owners, who reside in Windsor. Aside from proximity, Debra added that Windsor is an ideal hub for serving the northern Front Range.

Michael Ehler of The Group Inc. said the 102,278-square-foot lot was purchased for $98,000. Although the Skoglunds have yet to determine the size and cost of the new facility, Debra said construction should begin within the next year. No architect or general contractor has been hired.

Nestled within the eastern limits of town, the Windsor Tech Business Center contains 12 lots, eight of which have already been sold. Nine businesses reside at the center, including Icon Industries, a robotics company, which occupies approximately 10,000 square feet of land. Other facilities include a multitenant office building and several service garages and warehouses.

Chris Ruff, managing member and seller for the center, said the Skoglunds bought their property at a time when the Windsor commercial real estate market is thriving.

“We started (the Windsor Tech Business Center) in March of ’95 and expected it to be a five-year project to sell all of the lots,” Ruff said. “We’ve already sold two-thirds in two years. I’d say that’s a pretty decent market.”
