EVERETT -- The maritime firm planning to relocate to the waterfront here has named a former Everett city executive to lead its due diligence for buying the Kimberly-Clark mill site.
Seattle-based Saltchuk Resources announced Friday that Jim Langus will help the company finalize a deal to buy 66 acres of industrial waterfront from Kimberly-Clark Corp. of Dallas. Saltchuk is the parent company of Foss Maritime Co., which hopes to use the Everett property as a shipyard and as a home port for tugs and barges.
The companies announced the deal earlier this month. The sale is expected to close next year, following a four-month due diligence period.
Langus was a top Everett city administrator under former mayors Ed Hansen and Bill Moore. He later worked as chief administrative officer with the Snohomish County PUD when Hansen left the city to run the public utility. Langus' title with Saltchuk is project manager.
Saltchuk chairman Mark Tabbutt said Langus will help assess permitting and environmental issues related to the property sale.
