Chicago-based Azek Co. will renovate a building in Boise, Idaho, and turn it into its ninth manufacturing facility for Timbertech brand composite decking.
Construction of the plant will begin later this year and is expected to be fully operational in 2022.
Azek's expansion to the West will create 180 jobs over the next three years with 80 positions to be filled in the first hiring blitz.
The facility is a key part of the company's previously announced $180 million plan to increase capacity.
To qualify for a state tax incentive, Azek agreed to hire at least 146 people making an average yearly wage of $50,479, the Idaho Statesman news outlet reported.
The Boise plant will produce products for the Timbertech line, which are made from recycled polyethylene and wood fibers with a protective outer cap.
Azek says its products, which also includes railing, trim and other accessories, are made from up to 80 percent recycled material.
Boise was selected in part because local officials are working on a climate action plan to become the first city in Idaho to commit to 100 percent renewable energy.
"When deciding on a location for our new facility, we looked for a city that matched our values by putting sustainability at the heart of its operations and growth, as well as one that offered a highly skilled pool of candidates to join the Azek family," Azek CEO Jesse Singh said in a news release.
"We're excited to partner with the state of Idaho and the city of Boise and support their forward-looking commitment to addressing climate change, while strengthening Azek's geographic presence in the region, bringing new manufacturing jobs to the community, and meeting the strong demand for our beautiful, low-maintenance and sustainable outdoor living products for years to come," he added.
Azek also has manufacturing plants in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Minnesota.
