The City of Post Falls has taken a few hard hits job wise recently, with the pending closure of Kimball Office and Unitech backing out of their plan to move there large manufacturing operations to a site near Cabela's.
But, all is not lost on " Idaho's River City" with the plans, announced a couple of months ago to construct a new aerospace manufacturing plant for a company currently in Spokane Valley. Ironically this new factory will be almost next door to the large Kimball Office plant which will soon be empty.
This new aerospace manufacturing facility will be operated by ATC Manufacturing,Inc. and will be a relocation by the company from their current, smaller plant to this new site. The company chose to move to Idaho because of a new tool from the local government, called IDC or Industrial Development Corporation which allows for tax free financing to attract businesses to cross the border into Idaho.
ATC, which stands for Advanced Thermoplastic Composites and creates composites and carbon fiber parts for their clients in the aerospace industry. ATC will also relocate their corporate offices to this site in Post Falls. Currently ATC operates at 10310 E. Buckeye Lane, Spokane Valley.
ATC Manufacturing,Inc. employs about 70 today and plans to hire about 45 more during the next year.
Construction is already beginning at the company's Post Falls site which will be off of Lean Ave. in the Treaty Rock Corporate Park. The company will be the first tenant of the Treaty Rock park which is imminently west of Kimball Office and visible from Seltice Way. ATC Manufacturing's new building will be about 65,000 square feet and is currently scheduled to open during the fall of 2015.
