The 350,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility is a $140 million investment from the building products manufacturer.
The new AZEK facility in Boise is expected to support about 150 jobs over the next two years.
AZEK has unveiled its newest manufacturing facility in Boise, Idaho.
This is the building product manufacturer’s first manufacturing operation in the western part of the United States.
According to AZEK, the new 350,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility further advances the company’s strategy to drive material conversion to its types of sustainable, low-maintenance, and environmentally sustainable outdoor living products, providing capacity that will allow the company to scale to market demand for its products.
AZEK said it has committed approximately $140 million to design, build, and equip the facility with advanced technology and equipment.
Currently being utilized to manufacture the company’s premium composite decking, TimberTech, the new facility has brought approximately 70 jobs to the Treasure Valley community and expects to support a total of about 150 jobs over the next two years.
The new plant is AZEK's most western U.S. manufacturing location.
“The opening of this facility is an exciting milestone for The AZEK Company, enabling us to both support our customers and further expand our market penetration in the region,” said Jesse Singh, CEO of The AZEK Company. “We chose Boise for our newest facility location because we share the same strong passion for sustainability and commitment to placing that passion at the core of everything we do. Our team has never been more committed to our strategy, identifying the right communities that will help us advance our sustainability goals, ensuring we bring more job opportunities to people who share our beliefs, and meeting and exceeding our customer expectations.”
Additionally, the plant includes a dedicated 3,200-square-foot state-of-the-art training center, which will be used for AZEK University product knowledge sessions and hands-on workshops. The education provided by AZEK is designed to help distributors, dealers, architects, and contractor partners build their businesses and educate their customers on AZEK’s product lines, including TimberTech decking and railing, AZEK Exteriors products, and more.
"We are proud The AZEK Company chose Boise for their new Western United States plant location," Idaho Governor Brad Little said. "Idaho’s business-friendly environment is a perfect match for the company’s reputation as a leader in innovative and sustainable products that limit waste and advance recycling capabilities. Congratulations to The AZEK Company!
