The Stow Company is a closet and storage solution manufacturer, headquartered out of Holland, Michigan. Since the company was founded over 30 years ago, they have seen tremendous growth. This growth has resulted in a longstanding relationship with Lakewood Construction, having partnered on numerous projects over the last 10 years to continue their expansion.

As Stow continues to experience exponential growth, they knew they needed a way to better serve their customers on the western half of the United States and to do that, they needed to build a manufacturing hub out west.

After acquiring land in Nampa, Idaho, Stow made the decision to present Lakewood Construction with the opportunity to follow them out West and design and build their new facility. The Stow Company attributed their choice of foregoing getting multiple bids and going directly to Lakewood Construction, to their proven history of success together and trust in the Lakewood team to guide them in creating a facility to support their continued growth.The Lakewood team eagerly accepted and began integrating themselves into the Nampa community to ensure this projects success.

The Lakewood Architecture team worked closely with the project owners, our own construction team, E3M solutions, Megan Murray Interiors, and Holland Engineering to ensure the project was planned with the right expertise.

The new facility will include 20,000 sf of office space and 520,000 sf of manufacturing space. The addition of this space will not only allow them to continue to grow, it will also allow them to better serve their Western U.S. based clientele. The construction for this project began in February of 2022, and was completed on time and on budget in June of 2023.
