New Industrial Leases = More Jobs in Kootenai County

A few new warehouses and factories look to be on the horizon in North Idaho. One for a company new to our area and another an ecommerce company that has been growing in our area for sometime now.

Here is the details-

Smak Products,Inc adds new manufacturing plant in Hayden

Vancouver,WA based Smak Products,Inc. has started to process of moving into a manufacturing facility at 181 W. Aqua Ave. in Hayden. Smak is a plastics manufacturer that produces a number of products using a low pressure plastic molding process called rotational molding. A perk for the company to choose the building in Hayden was that a similar company had occupied the building last leaving them with equipment they can use in their processes.

Smak Products, Inc. is already open for business in Hayden with a small crew. However once they are at full capacity the new factory will employ about 45. Company employees typically receive between $11 and $16 per hour.

Macs Designs,LLC dba NanaMac's Boutique leases new warehouse in Post Falls

Although there is no mention of how many jobs exactly it will create, the Coeur d' Alene based NanaMac's Boutique has agreed to lease a 21,000 free standing warehouse building at 6164 W. Seltice Way in Post Falls

NanaMac's is a growing online seller of women's clothing and accessories. They also operate in a brick & mortar retail store under the same name at 2018 W. Main in the Coeur d' Alene's Village at Riverstone shopping center.

The building they will lease was last used by a company called Integrated Ideas & Technology's who recently relocated to the Coeur d' Alene Industrial Park. Another small facility is also already under construction right next door to it for another company that we unfortunately have little information about.

We're also watching closely two planned factories coming just over the Washington border in Spokane Valley. We'll likely have more on that in a future post however...
