The Blower Shop, an automotive and marine parts manufacturer, announced it will relocate to Boise from Simi Valley, Calif.

The Blower Shop, which specializes in superchargers and drive components used in professional racing and other high-performance uses, agreed to purchase a 13,000-square-foot building near the Boise Airport.

The company plans to hire 20 full-time employees and open its new operation by August.

“Financially, it made sense to leave our leased space in Southern California and purchase a building centrally located in southeast Boise,” CEO Ron Hayes said. “We are a growing company trying to stay on the leading edge in our marketplace and expanding our product line within the automotive performance industry.”

The Blower Shop plans to work with the College of Western Idaho’s machine-tool program to support its training needs.
