The Westlie Ford service and parts departments will relocate from downtown Camas to the dealership’s sales location in Washougal in April, following the purchase of its landmark building by Fuel Medical.
The moves will involve remodeling projects and expansions by both companies.
Fuel Medical has purchased the building at 314 N.E. Birch St., for $825,000. The purchase includes a parking lot for employees, across the street from the Westlie building.
The founders of Fuel Medical, Shawn Parker and Brendan Ford, live in Camas.
“We were looking for a fun place for our employees,” Parker said. “The downtown Camas area is great. We love the main street. The staff can have a cool building that we can renovate, and they can walk to lunch and coffee breaks.”
Fuel Medical started in downtown Vancouver in 2011 before moving to 16906 S.E. First St., Ste. 101, in east Vancouver. Its current office space is 2,500 square feet, and the future site is 10,000 square feet.
Parker said the company helps physicians grow their practices through marketing support and financial analytics.
