The Washington State Advantage

Following are just a few of the competitive advantages of doing business in Washington State:

    • The opportunity to be part of a robust supply chain that serves every aircraft manufacturer and airline in the world. 85% of all commercial aircraft produced in the United States are made in Washington State.
    • Access to a seasoned workforce that can contribute right from the start, leveraging their tremendous knowledge and experience in design, production, manufacturing and MRO.
    • The ability to tap into synergistic industries, including Washington’s information and communication technology, advanced manufacturing, military and defense and clean energy sectors.
    • An export hub that’s equidistant between European and Asian markets and a day’s sail closer to major Asian seaports and overseas suppliers.


    • Proximity to world-class research universities and a national research laboratory, one of only 10 such labs in the United States.
    • A supply chain that is interconnected at every level, from R&D and production to training and apprenticeship programs that are closely aligned with current and emerging industry needs.
    • Rapidly growing next-gen aerospace clusters: commercial space, UAS and electric and autonomous aircraft.
