Tacoma Screw Products pours foundation for store on North Yellowstone

Workers at the future site of Tacoma Screw Products on North Yellowstone in Idaho Falls.
Tacoma Screw Products, a 66-year-old company with 16 stores in the Pacific Northwest, is busy laying the foundation for its new Idaho Falls store, which will be about 10,000 square feet and similar to the company's stores in Boise and Twin Falls.

Company President John Wolfe said he knew very little about Idaho Falls before looking into the market out as a possible store location, but that he has been "impressed a lot by the upscale nature of development in the area."

Tacoma Screw Products' customer base includes retail, manufacturing, construction, transportation, aerospace, maritime, agricultural, food processing, recreational, institutional operations, and city, county, state, and federal governmental agencies. When customers need custom or special fasteners that are oversized, require special threading or bending, the company has a machine shop to fabricate them.

The company typically employs three or four people to work in a store and three or four people to handle outside sales.

Here's a link to a story about the company that ran last fall in the Tacoma News Tribune: http://www.thenewstribune.com/2012/10/28/2347441/tacoma-screw-broadens-its-sales.html.
