Grass Valley Moves Beaverton Office
HILLSBORO, ORE. – Grass Valley has moved up the road from
its former digs in Beaverton, Ore. The company’s Northwestern offices are now
at 3030 Alocleck Dr., Hillsboro, Ore., about four miles northwest of the Beaverton
location. The new location is closer to the Portland-Hillsboro Airport.
Grass Valley the
company, founded in the eponymous Sierra Nevada community in Northern
California, developed its Beaverton connection when Tektronix acquired the
company in the mid-1970s. The company was purchased in 1999 to San Diego,
Calif.-based investor Terry Gooding, who in turn sold it to Thomson SA in
Paris, France in 2002. Thomson sold the company—made famous by its
Marauder-shifter video switchers—to San Francisco private equity firm Francisco
Partners last year.
