Primary jobs inject new money into the Tacoma-Pierce County economy.

The Economic Development Board for Tacoma-Pierce County (EDB) has a two-prong mission: retention and recruitment of primary businesses in Tacoma-Pierce County, Washington State. Primary businesses are firms that export goods or services out of the area and import new dollars into the local economy.

Primary firms are the fundamental building blocks of jobs and wealth creation, and we take them very seriously.

Since 1978, the EDB has worked with firms that have invested billions of dollars in the South Puget Sound and that employ tens of thousands of workers at high wages: Boeing, Mitsui-Soko (U.S.A.), Inc., Amazon, IKEA, State Farm, Green Mountain Coffee, and hundreds of other firms have discovered what you can discover, too: Tacoma-Pierce County is a great place to invest and to grow great companies.

Please contact us today and let us help your firm or client become a success in Tacoma-Pierce County.
