North Idaho recruit Titan Spring featured on Invest Northwest

Titan Spring, a manufacturer primarily supplying the aerospace industry, relocated to Hayden, Idaho from Southern California. The company sought improvements to the bottom line and quality of life for its employers and found both when it made the move four years ago, Jim Glenn, the company’s president said on KHQ-TV’s “Invest Northwest” program.

Technology allowed Titan Spring to move even though much of its customer base remains in Southern California. Glenn said the company traded traffic congestion, a high cost of living and troubling business climate for a great quality of life, reduced operational costs and welcoming business environment.

“Up here they love you,” Glenn said of the community. “In California they hate you. You’re a business, you’re all things evil associated with a business person. We’re welcomed with open arms here, and people can’t do enough for you.”
