CXT Inc. moved a manufacturing plant from Spokane Valley, WA to Nampa in recent weeks.

CXT, which makes products like those bathrooms you might see in a state park, closed its plant in Washington in December. It started gearing up a new plant in Nampa this month.

“We are very pleased CXT has chosen to relocate their manufacturing operations to Nampa, Idaho,” Nampa Mayor Debbie Kling said. “We are excited to support their workforce needs and trust any employees who may be relocating to our area enjoy our friendly community. On behalf of the City of Nampa, we welcome CXT and wish them much success in the future.”

The relocation will bring along about 80 jobs, according to a news release. The company listed a number of those positions on LinkedIn.

“We are excited to join the Treasure Valley business community and are looking forward to developing strong strategic alliances throughout the region for years to come,” CXT president Steve Burgess said.

CXT said the relocation will bring manufacturing closer to potential customers. The new facility brings a 79,000 square foot building on 10 acres of land at an unspecified location in Nampa.
