Nashua is among Idaho’s top 75 privately held companies, starting in the mobile home industry; now one of the most flexible manufacturing companies in the modular building and prefab modular buildings industry. The first Idaho facility began in Boise’s Gowen industrial park in 1956. The company was purchased by the Yanke family patriarch Ron Yanke in 1987, moved to the current Federal Way location in 1988. In the past several years, Nashua has provided the majority of extreme cold weather man camps for the harsh environments of the Canadian and Alaskan oil industry. The capacity provided by Nashua Builders created a lasting partnership with Alta-Fab Structures, Ltd. providing quality industrial space and remote housing needs and basecamps. Nashua markets include all modular lodging projects, commercial modular buildings, modular school buildings, prefab retirement homes, modular hospitals, prefabricated modular buildings, offices and remote housing needs.

The Children's Learning Center is headed for delivery in downtown Jackson Hole Wyoming. It is approximately 15,000 Sq Ft of classroom space.

Modular construction is far from a new concept in the United States. As early as 1908, Sears,Roebuck and Co. offered the American dream through kit homes that arrived by rail with all the components to complete the home, including instructions. Sears’ initial offering priced homes between $700 and $4,000, and about 75,000 such homes were sold during the approximately 30-year span of their being marketed. Currently, labor shortages and increasing material costs are dictating that modular or “off-site” construction may again be the facilitator of home ownership for Americans. The modular construction industry is currently undergoing a rebirth in order to fill avoid between affordability and market demands

for quality. In pursuing this end, the industry has had to overcome the twin hurdles of both a marketplace misconception, as well as previously accurate, but now dated, perceptions. Addressing the misconception hurdle first, it is noted that modular construction had previously often been confused with manufactured housing, the description of a home that is brought to a site via a chassis, which is part of the structure itself. Once to its destination, manufactured housing may be converted into real estate (per most lending standards) by the removal of the axles and trailer tongue (often referred to as “trailer homes”).
