When first discovering Sandpoint, visitors are often taken aback by the astounding beauty, world class recreational opportunities, Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort, our historic downtown, abundant public art, exceptional parks, trails, walkable neighborhoods all juxtaposed by the largest lake in Idaho—Beautiful Lake Pend Oreille.

Why is it that companies like Quest Aircraft, Tamarack Aerospace, Kochava, Biomedical Innovations, and Litehouse Foods choose Sandpoint?  Leadership in these companies appreciate the high quality of life that Sandpoint residents enjoy—recreational amenities, great schools, and the arts.  However, business leaders also know that it has to make economic sense as well.  A committed workforce, low energy costs, competitive wages, local, regional and statewide economic development incentives, a local airport and a 90 minute drive to Spokane International all add up to smart business in a very amenity rich area.
