Your Vision – Our Mission
Our motto is “Your Vision – Our Mission”. We love a challenge and can make just about anything that looks good, smells great, and works fine. We can make that product to your specifications, on time and on cost. We note that many captains of small business ventures have great vision, but suffer from enough time and energy to follow through on their great visions. That is our job, follow through. One of the most important factors for successful business is marketing and sales. You may concentrate on marketing and planning your next venture, while leaving the heavy lifting to us.
Our staff is small and is treated like family. Out veteran own business has grown from a single part time employee in 2014 to a handful of employees to fill our modern 3800 square foot facility in the Spokane Airport Business Park. We have a philosophy that happy employees make better soap and better citizens. We are proud to support the community and to make products in America. Our products are your products, not the cheapest, but the best. Tell us what you want and go sell it. We will make you proud.
The Shadow Works model is based off the KISS principle “keep it simple stupid”. Our processes are accomplished by hand to exacting standards. The handmade production allows us some flexibility to take on small batch jobs that others could not. Examples include labeling rectangular shaped bottles and oval shaped tubes. These are not insurmountable obstacles if you can make a machine or jig to consistently place a label. They do present a challenge for the manufacturer who must procure equipment and set up cost effective (large) production runs. By the time that you negotiate with the big manufacturing company, your vision for marketing a great product is fading into a pipe dream because of lack of resources and other practical matters.
Shadow Works is the niche manufacturing entity that can fill your need for small production runs, professionally manufactured and packaged to you specification. We make your product under your label. The name Shadow Works was chosen to highlight the mission of working in the shadow of captains of entrepreneurial efforts. By the employ of Shadow Works, you will no longer be limited by your ability to produce the product, you are then poised for success. The Shadow Works goal would be to see your present shadow grow to be a long shadow. When your shadow becomes too long, we will all smile. We understand that fun and profit is not a zero sum game, they are best when shared and we will applaud your success.
