The Blower Shop, a high-performance engine parts manufacturer for the automotive and marine markets, has announced that it is relocating its operations to Boise, Idaho from Simi Valley, California. In operation for more than three decades, The Blower Shop is recognized as a world leader in roots-style supercharging technology and manufactures superchargers as well as drive components for the professional racing industry along with street and marine enthusiasts.
Ron Hayes, CEO of the Blower Shop, explains, “We selected the Boise area for our relocation because of the huge opportunity to expand the business within a growing region. Financially, it made sense to leave our leased space in Southern California and purchase a building centrally located in southeast Boise. We are a growing company trying to stay on the leading edge in our marketplace, and also expanding our product line within the automotive performance industry.”
The Blower Shop has entered into an agreement to purchase a 13,000 square foot building in southeast Boise near the Boise Airport. It will house a full machine shop with both CNC and manual machines, and is expected to be online by August 2016.
“Good manufacturing jobs are key to a strong economy,” said Mayor David Bieter. “I am thrilled that the Blower Shop chose Boise. They will be creating even more job opportunities for skilled Boiseans and strengthening our city’s forward momentum.”
The Blower Shop plans to hire up to 20 full-time benefited employees within the first few years of operation, and will be working closely with the College of Western Idaho to support its training needs. The Blower Shop will manufacture, warehouse, sell and distribute its products all from the new location in Boise. The majority of its sales are to speed shops, engine builders, race teams, and other large distribution companies.
