IdahoBusinessReview reports Mesa, Arizona-based Greenstar Building Systems has purchased a building in Weiser, Idaho to make modular housing for workers at oil and mining camps.

Greenstar anticipates hiring over 75 production workers, including carpenters, painters, electricians, plumbers and assemblers, likely drawing on former Champion employees. In addition to producing modular homes for work camps in Texas, North Dakota, Montana, Nevada and Canada, the company also provides septic, utility, power, security and food services at the work sites.
