The first development since 2012 in Nez Perce County recently broke ground on six acres at the Port of Lewiston.
Tualatin, Oregon-based Northwest Fourslide, a manufacturer of precision metal stampings and wire forms, held a ceremony to mark the beginning of construction on their newest facility, as reported by Valley Vision, Inc, the economic development committee for the county.
The building, which is slated to be completed in 2024, will be 43,000 square feet, including office space. The cost for construction, machinery and equipment is estimated at $13.5 million.
“We are grateful for the support of Valley Vision, Inc., the Port of Lewiston, City of Lewiston, Nez Perce County and the state of Idaho,” said Matt Mellinger, director of Northwest Fourslide in the report.
The manufacturer has been in business since 1979, creating simple to complex products that it refers to as “metal origami.” Northwest Fourslide prototypes and manufactures both low- and high-volume requirements.
