In February 2024, U.S. Senator Jim Risch, senior member and former chairman of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, recognized Arnzen Building Construction in Cottonwood as the Idaho Small Business of the Month. The company will be celebrated for its contributions to the North Central Idaho community in the Congressional Record of the U.S. Senate.
Arnzen Building Construction was founded in 1978 by Morris Arnzen and has been a fixture in North Central Idaho for over 45 years. Under Morris’ leadership, the company has played a crucial role in shaping the region’s built environment with its commitment to high-quality construction and workmanship. Arnzen Building Construction has contributed to a wide range of residential, commercial, educational, medical, and public works projects in the area.
What sets Arnzen Building Construction apart is its dedication not only to constructing sturdy buildings but also building a strong community. The company’s support of local fire departments, youth groups, and 4-H chapters demonstrates their commitment to giving back to the community they serve. This commitment has earned them recognition as an exceptional small business that embodies Idaho’s values of hard work, entrepreneurial spirit, and community involvement.
