An Oregon building materials manufacturer says it was used by the Post to supply materials to build a building that collapsed in the days after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
Robert M. Miller, a co-owner of the Portland-based LCC Materials and Tools, told the Oregonian newspaper last month that the company was using an industrial supply warehouse to provide materials for the Post after it was damaged by a fire in October 2001.
The warehouse was set up in the early 1980s to help supply steelmakers for the post and other businesses in Portland.
The company was in the process of replacing the building’s roof when a fire erupted in October, which destroyed the warehouse and forced the company to relocate.
The company is still unsure if the warehouse was a part of the fire.
The building was built by the company for $2.8 million, according to the Oregon Tribune, which has a story on the story.
The Post reported that it purchased the building from the City of Portland and was the first major newspaper to move into the space.
The newspaper also said the building housed a printer and the office of a public relations firm.
The paper has not identified who built the building.
