BAKER CITY — General manager Ted Hausotter says success at Natural Structures would not be possible without great employees. The manufacturer of water slides, park pavilions and outdoor furniture moved from Sherwood with 15 employees in 2003. Fast-forward four years and business is booming and the employee list has grown to about 40. Hausotter attributes that growth to the good reception the company got from local banks, allowing loans for $200,000 worth of new equipment and the ability the company now has to do more work in-house. Now if there’s a problem it can be fixed onsite, allowing the product to ship without delay. Natural Structures plans to open their 22,000-square-foot expansion in early April.
