Pacific Cabinets expands
Pacific Cabinets Inc. (PCI) is beginning construction on a new 20,000 square foot manufacturing facility.  
This new facility is in addition to the existing manufacturing building.  The new building is purposed to automate the manufacturing of Corian countertops, plastic laminate tops, medical headwalls, and all of the highly custom items such as nurse stations Pacific Cabinets manufactures for the healthcare and laboratory projects. By removing these functions from the existing plant and automating processes the existing facility will increase cabinet production by approximately 30 percent.  This expansion is necessary to keep up with the 20 million dollars PCI currently has under contract. Along with the expansion our workforce has been increasing and will continue to increase.
The future looks bright as they only see the demand increasing in coming years.  PCI continues to expand into other market areas such as Hawaii and Alaska.  In addition, the healthcare, and Biotech markets continue to have strong growth potential for many years.  PCI has budgeted a single project in the Seattle area which has over 14 million in products and will be manufactured in the Ferdinand plant in late 2017 through 2019 if awarded.
Pacific Cabinets was founded on the premises of employing people from our local communities. In an effort to continue to strive for this goal PCI has recently teamed with the Idaho Department of Labor, CEDA, and local school districts, to establish a formal training program. This will allow the company to continue to have a well trained professional staff hired from our local communities.  The intent of this formalized training is to bridge the gap between education and industry.  Training of this nature will offer additional opportunities for local students to seek a career in a manufacturing related business.  Company President Steve Frei is excited about this training as it “goes a long way to accomplish this goal.”
Arnzen Building Construction will be the general contractor on the new expansion.  The building is expected to be completed by July 2016.
