About Box Factory
Box Factory is Bend’s new up and coming destination in the Mill Quarter neighborhood. Formerly known as the Old Mill Marketplace, the building was acquired by Killian Pacific in July 2013 and has since been restored using historic preservation standards and techniques. One of Bend’s two original box factories built during the early 20th century logging boom and part of the Brooks-Scanlon mill complex, the newly restored Box Factory is now the only box factory building remaining in Bend and celebrates its 100th year standing in June 2016.
Today the Box Factory houses a growing collection of more than 32 locally owned Bend businesses including Atlas Cider Company, Immersion Brewing, Picky Bars, The Gear Fix, Webcyclery, Atelier 6000, The Brown Owl, Jewel Images and more.
The Box Factory is located at 550 SW Industrial Way in Bend, Ore. For more information about the Box Factory please visit www.bendboxfactory.com
