Ground Force leasing Plummer plant

Ground Force Manufacturing LLC has leased a 55,000-square-foot building in Plummer, Idaho, from the Coeur d’Alene Tribe, the two parties announced today.

The Post Falls manufacturer makes trucks for the mining industry. Company officials expect to hire 50 or more employees at the Plummer plant within a year.

The building formerly housed a tribal enterprise, Echelon LLC, which made large fuel bladders under a contract with the U.S. Army. As a result of military spending cuts, Echelon has shifted its focus to construction management and environmental services, according to tribal officials.

Ground Force’s lease is for five years, with options to renew.
