Cost-EffectiveThe Inland Northwest delivers value that advances your bottom line. Costs are considerably lower. The regulatory environment is less onerous. Two tax structures create flexibility, choice, and a competitive advantage. Power is inexpensive and reliable. Wage rates are competitive. Business incentives offer opportunity. Worker’s compensation rates continue to rank among the lowest in the nation.

Combined, those factors make up a supportive, resource-rich environment conducive to meeting your next challenge. Regional assets produce a competitive advantage, whether your marketplace is regional, national, or global.
"We wanted to relocate because the business climate and lifestyle in California had done downhill over the years. Spokane was our final choice because it's cost-effective for distributors to do business in Washington."—Irv Zakheim, president and CEO of Zak Designs
