SPOKANE – Washington Window & Door, based in Redmond, Wash., plans to move its Spokane Valley showroom and warehouse operations to new locations here in September.

The company has leased space for a showroom at 12209 E. Mission and has leased warehouse space at Spokane Business & Industrial Park, says Steve Taylor, its Spokane branch manager. Washington Window is the authorized distributor here for Dubuque, Iowa-based Eagle Windows & Doors’ aluminum-clad wood windows and doors. It sells, installs, and services the products in Eastern Washington and North Idaho in both the commercial and residential markets, he says.

Taylor says that the move will allow Washington Window & Door to have a bigger showroom here. It has been housed in 2,000 square feet of converted office space at 11115 E. Montgomery. He says the company is growing here and recently added a second salesperson and an office manager to its staff. The company now employes six people here, up from three employees last year, Taylor says.

Taylor says the company currently is having some tenant improvements, such as new lighting, carpeting, and paint, done by subcontractors at its showroom, and it hopes to occupy the space, which is at the corner of Pines and Mission, by the end of September. He says he hopes to have moved into the warehouse around the same time.

Dean Stuart, SBIP’s director of marketing, handled the warehouse lease. Washington Window negotiated its showroom lease with James Wolff, who owns the building at Pines and Mission, Taylor says.
