Moscow-based Northwest River Supplies (NRS) recently relocated its headquarters to a cutting-edge, 155,000 square-foot building that includes a warehouse, offices, and retail space. NRS has been a leading provider of water sports equipment and apparel since it was founded in 1972, and this new headquarters testifies to their positive economic impact in the Palouse region. “A big part of our success at NRS comes from a culture of inclusion and shared responsibility,” says NRS Chief Financial Officer Tony Mangini. “Having everyone working together in one building will encourage communication and collaboration throughout the business while supporting continued growth.”
In 2006, NRS acquired the South Blaine Street property in Moscow, formerly a Tidyman’s supermarket. The recent massive overhaul of this property provides increased space for inventory and personnel while allowing NRS to locate all business functions under one roof. More importantly, NRS finally has a brilliant showroom and retail outlet to highlight its gear and make the headquarters a worthy destination for every level of paddler and whitewater enthusiast. The showroom features boats and lifejackets, as well as NRS clothing and lifestyle products to help you enjoy life on the water even more.
