Snohomish County Augments Aerospace Workforce Development Capacity

Where will Washington State get the 21,000 new aerospace workers that the state projects will be needed in the future? That question underlies the decision to create the Washington Aerospace Training and Research Center in Everett.  Read the Herald story here

Where does the center fit into Snohomish County’s future economic vitality strategy? It strengthens the “capacity” to develop the new workers needed to strengthen the County and the State’s aerospace industry cluster. This is an element of Snohomish County’s cluster strategy. The County will need a much more powerful strategy to both retain and grow aerospace businesses and jobs in the future as new unforeseen competitors like Charleston, SC arrive on the scene. Industries like aerospace are more “portable” today than they have ever been because of technology, global markets, and cost-reduction strategies driving business facilities to lower cost and equal quality business locations.

This is all food for thought for the leaders of Project Concentrus.
