House of Design Robotics Expands into Former Macy’s Store in Nampa, Idaho

Company Receives Conditional Use Permit Approval
Nampa, ID – House of Design Robotics (HoD), one of the West’s largest robot
integrators, is beginning improvements in the former Macy’s store on Galleria Dr.
immediately following their conditional use permit approval by Nampa City Council
Monday evening.
The building will serve as House of Design’s headquarters and technology center.
There will be 73,000 square feet of assembly space allotted to research and
development of automation products. The project will also include creating
approximately 30,000 square feet of office, as well as meeting and training space for
150-200 full-time employees.
“This facility is long overdue and will be necessary for our rapidly-growing business.
House of Design started in the James E. Hogge Nampa Business Accelerator. We
remain committed to increasing technology jobs and providing innovation opportunities
here in the Treasure Valley,” says Dan Wright, House of Design’s Head of Corporate
Nampa Mayor Debbie Kling said, “I am so excited and thrilled to see the success of a Nampa company which has grown from a small start-up to an industry leader in robotic automation. It is remarkable to see the vision of the Dittrich and Okelberry family grow into the company it is today. The expansion of their company in the Nampa Gateway Center will provide a unique opportunity for the House of Design Robotics employees to live, work and play within walking distance from work.”
House of Design is targeting occupancy for mid-July, 2022 and hopes to have a public
open house in September, 2022. The company plans to maintain their current lease and
operations at their 20th-street location for at least another year. In that time, HoD will
break ground on a new, 120,000-square-foot manufacturing center near McDonagh
Park (off of E. Karcher Rd.) with intended occupancy of spring, 2023. The
manufacturing center will primarily provide assembly space for HoD’s automated truss
and panel lines.
