EvCC trains new kind of workforce Program to teach skills needed in future as well as needed in past By Melissa Crowe

For The Herald Business Journal

EVERETT – Unlike decades ago, the current surge in demand for welders and other vocational skills in the Puget Sound region is more than a search for blue-collar workers. Increasingly specialized industry requires knowledge of robotics, electronics, programming and fabrication along with a solid foundation of welding, hydraulics and Sheila Dunn mechanics. The new mechatronics program at Everett Community College, slated to open this fall, is gearing up to train a new kind of workforce. “It’s nothing like what we saw in shop class 20 years ago,” said Sheila Dunn, EvCC associate dean of aerospace and advanced manufacturing careers. “The processes are evolving and changing and

1471170

the foundational skills are changing with it.” This new crop of technicians will still need to know how to maintain and repair older equipment, along with how to work with automated systems and robotics. The new program is a direct response of industry demand. “It’s a commitment of the college to the community, to future workers and to the industries that are working hard to support their growing and emerging technology,” Dunn said. If the name sounds off, don’t be alarmed. It is “a made-up word for mechanical electronics,” Dunn said. The college’s new program will train technicians in robotics, electrical, mechanical, programming, welding, hydraulics, programmable logic controls and fabrication. Upon graduation, mechatronics technicians will be able to install, maintain, troubleshoot and repair industrial equipment. Mechatronics is one of the top emerging technologies slated to transform the world. The Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts the occupation will continue growing through 2022 and technicians’ broad skill set will help sustain demand for their services. “What we’re hearing from industry is

this is what’s needed most,” Dunn said. “This is the gap: people in the trades with understanding of basic mechanical electronics.” Locally, Boeing is the big key player in the program and stands to benefit the most from the trained workforce, Dunn said. That also trickles down to secondand third-tier suppliers who are also automating their systems and adding robotics equipment. As positions for riveters or drillers are replaced with robots, “you’d be creating jobs in turn with the people who have to maintain those systems,” Dunn said Dunn expects the shortage of these employees will drive the wage up. Recent machining grads who earn $60,000 after five years could stand to earn more with mechatronics training, Dunn said. “The whole idea of prevention and maintenance of automated systems is just emerging,” Dunn said. “As these robots are being customized for employers, that creates a whole area of who is going to sustain those investments.” EvCC committed in October to funding a $2.5 million expansion of the Advanced Manufacturing Training and Education Center to make room for the new mechatronics program. EvCC President David Beyer said in a

news release the program and expansion is “the next step to meet the demand for skilled employees.” The center, which opened in October 2014, is located in a former warehouse at 909 N. Broadway. The expansion will add 17,000 square feet to the center, including eight classrooms and a mechatronics lab. The college plans to open the program in stages until it is fully built out to a fulltime, two-year degree. In the two-year build out process, the college will offer a short certificate with compressed versions of the five key areas to mechatronics: electronics, mechanics, programming, pneumatics and hydraulics, and robotics. This winter students can earn a short certificate in robotics. Dunn expects the first year will see 40 graduates, but one challenge is identifying who needs the program the most: people already in the workforce or new students. Since the manufacturing center opened, more than a thousands students have been trained for high-demand jobs in manufacturing and aerospace. Dunn said she hopes to partner with area high schools for dual-credit courses on robotics and work with area universities’ mechanical engineering programs to create real-life situations for both professions.

From mill town to boom town Study: Manufacturing surged in Snohomish County as it declined elsewhere in U.S. By Deanna Duff

For The Herald Business Journal

J

ohn Monroe had a front-row seat to Snohomish County’s manufacturing boom. With the opening of Boeing’s first Everett plant in 1967, he witnessed his hometown transition from a predominantly mill town to the advanced manufacturing juggernaut it is today. A 2015 University of Washington study found Snohomish County boasted the nation’s largest percentage of manufacturing job growth over a period of nearly 50 years.

From 1967 to 2014, it surged 276 percent increasing from 16,000 to 60,156 jobs. The study was based on U.S. Bureau of Labor statistics. “We can’t forget how important manufacturing and advanced manufacturing are to our community in terms of both jobs and social benefits,” says Monroe, chief operating officer of Economic Alliance Snohomish County. Snohomish County is an encouraging anomaly. In 1967, manufacturing jobs accounted for 25 percent of the U.S. workforce compared to 8.3 percent in 2014. Locally, neighboring King County dropped 45.5 percent. “I’ve been here (Washington) since 1955 and long before Everett’s Boeing plant. So, I knew in general things had changed, but even I was surprised by how much Snohomish County’s growth outpaces other places,” says Richard Morrill, the study’s author and University of Washington professor emeritus, Depart-

COVER STORY Boom times Snohomish County saw the number of its manufacturing jobs grow from 16,000 in 1967 to more than 60,000 in 2014, an increase of 276 percent, the largest growth of manufacturing jobs for any county in the country. ment of Geography and Environmental Studies. Snohomish County contributes $36.2 billion to the state economy. The majority of the county’s manufacturing jobs are related to aerospace and anchored by Boeing’s presence, according to Economic Alliance. “We have the full life cycle of employment in Everett from conceptualizing and designing airplanes, to building, corporate functions, marketing and sales. Plus, we have numerous suppliers in Snohomish County,” says Bill McSherry, Boeing vice president, State & Local and Global Corporate Citizenship. McSherry estimates that Boeing’s current workforce in Everett is approximately 44,000. Growth includes the April 2013 opening of Boeing’s new 180,000 square-foot Everett Delivery Center which tripled previous capacity. Additionally, the 747 recently was updated and the 767 line was boosted in 2015. Boeing’s 787-9 Dreamliner is also currently under production in Everett. “There has been a period of a couple of years where every plane in the Everett factory has been updated. That investment — I can’t even tell how many of millions of dollars — is driving a remarkable increase in work for Everett,” McSherry says. The future of Snohomish manufacturing work will likely continue expanding with the development of Boeing’s 777X. The program is projected to support 56,000 jobs in Washington. Everett will be home to the 1.2 million square-foot Composite Wing Center. Construction is underway with a projected opening of 2016 to begin building the largest wing in history. According to Monroe, aerospace ranks highest in all industry sectors for what is known as the multiplier effect — additional jobs created for every advance manufacturing job. Every Snohomish County aerospace worker generates an additional 1.67 jobs. “I think part of it is that aerospace industry salaries are higher and afford a bit more discretionary income to spend on services and education. It just overall affords the community a higher level of employment,” Monroe says. While Boeing is the region’s primary linchpin, the enduring strength of Snohomish County’s manufacturing sector is an ecosystem of diverse contributors. A 2013 study by Community Attributes, Inc., a Seattle-based consulting

firm, found that the county is home to 219 aerospace-related businesses. “When we think about economic development, there is the concept of economic clusters, concentrations of given industries. There is no better example of an economic cluster making everyone stronger than what’s in Everett when it comes to aerospace,” McSherry says. A number of companies recently relocated to Snohomish County. In 2009, Korry Electronics, a subsidiary of Esterline Control Systems, moved from South Lake Union to Paine Field. In February 2015, Esterline acquired Belgium based Barco, an aerospace and defense display business, with half of the company moving to Everett. “There were a couple of reasons for the move,” says Mike McCoy, president of Esterline-Korry Electronics and Esterline-Mason Electric. “One was the pro-business climate we experienced in Snohomish County. (Economic Alliance) reached out and bent over backwards working on site selection so we could be co-located to Boeing.” McCoy cites the “rich community of skilled workers” as another reason why the area is fertile ground for

manufacturing. A local focus on educating the next generation of workers includes Everett Community College’s Advanced Manufacturing Training & Education Center. Opened in 2014, an expansion is already planned to accommodate demand for new programs. “We have to ensure we stay focused on our general ability to continue delivering skilled and qualified employees at all levels of the workforce. All levels is really a key aspect for me,” says Matt Yerbic, chief executive officer, Aviation Technical Services (ATS). ATS provides airplane maintenance, major modifications and upgrades. Around 75 percent of its workforce is located in Snohomish County. “The vast majority of people who are underpinning this industry and sector of Snohomish County may not be engineers, but are more likely folks who are very highly skilled technicians putting airplanes together and helping maintain them. That’s the driving engine,” Yerbic says. Companies such as ATS provide sustainment services which help ensure a vibrant future for the manufacturing. Planes built in Everett continually return

for maintenance and upgrades, work that would otherwise be lost. “There is an entire life cycle from dreaming up the airplane to bringing it to life and then maintenance and modifications,” Yerbic says. “It’s great to have both sides of that process in one area. It’s not all that usual. It’s kind of a uniquely Snohomish County thing.” Snohomish County leaders are working to support continued manufacturing growth for the next 50 years. Economic Alliance commissioned a study in 2014 that projected 200,000 new residents in 20 years, which equates to 103,000 additional jobs. Economic Alliance is identifying new manufacturing sectors, such as maritime and medical device manufacturing, with a need for skills already present in the local workforce. Diversifying will help Snohomish County weather possible future fluctuations in aerospace. “What we have (in Snohomish County) comes out of good fortune and decades of hard work by people who cared about their industry,” Yerbic says. “We have what we have today on the backs of the drive from the people. We can’t ever take that for granted.”

Snohomish County has a strong need for college graduates with targeted degrees to maintain the strength of the local economy. Aerospace and advanced manufacturing companies that support our economy need new talent to replace a generation of retiring employees. Thousands of new engineers will need to be hired by those companies by 2020. That’s closer than you think... Beyond aerospace jobs, our state leads the nation in the creation of STEM jobs. However, according to Washington Roundtable, 25,000 jobs, heavily concentrated in the STEM disciplines, went unfilled by employers in 2013 due to a lack of qualified candidates. They’re closer than you think... Washington state ranks 45th in the U.S. for 18-24 year olds in college. Our county’s students are challenged by location, cost and the ability to access the programs they need to get jobs locally.

We’re closer than you think. WSU offers in-demand, degree-completion programs in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, hospitality business management and integrated communication, with software engineering and data analytics coming soon. 1471800

Sound Transit considers light rail options City, county officials want light rail to go to Paine Field

“Getting from Everett to Seattle or Seattle to Everett with any predictability is simply not possible on I-5.” — Paul Roberts

By Jim Davis

The Herald Business Journal Editor

Congestion around the region is more than inconvenient; it’s a threat to jobs and businesses. That’s what elected officials say about the bumper-to-bumper traffic that’s only getting worse around the Puget Sound area. “Getting from Everett to Seattle or Seattle to Everett with any predictability is simply not possible on I-5,” said Everett City Councilman Paul Roberts. Now, the 18-member Sound Transit board is

The Sound Transit board is considering alternatives in a tax package heading to voters this fall that would bring light rail to Everett.

putting together a new transit measure called Sound Transit 3 that is expected to go to voters this fall. The new measure

is likely to finish what is called the “spine,” building a light rail corridor from Everett to Tacoma and out to Redmond.

Everett officials would like to see the light-rail line run to Paine Field — where it would serve tens of thousands of Boe-

ing workers — then head north to the Everett Station and end up near Everett Community College. But the Everett leg will be competing against other needs in the region, in particular proposals to build light rail that reaches Ballard and West Seattle. Those proposals would be attractive King County voters. So there might be pressure to build light rail to Everett up I-5 or Highway 99, which would save money for other projects. A Sound Transit study released in early December showed that an I-5 line of light rail would

cost between $2.9 billion to $3.1 billion. A line that runs to Paine Field would cost an estimated $4.6 billion to $4.9 billion. “Building the wrong system might be cheaper, but at the end of the day it’s wrong,” said Roberts, who serves on the Sound Transit board. Everett Mayor Ray Stephanson also strongly supports bringing light rail to Paine Field. “If it’s a straight shot up I-5 and bypasses 100,000 workers (at the Boeing factory), that’s show stopper for me.” Stephanson said.

“That’s just unacceptable. I would be hard pressed to support it in 2016 if that’s the case.” Sound Transit operates express bus, commuter rail and light rail in Snohomish, Pierce and King counties. Voters have twice approved tax measures to pay for still-under-construction light rail as well as Sounder commuter train service and bus service. Under the current measure, called Sound Tran-

sit 2, light rail is being extended south to KentDes Moines and north to Lynnwood. Sound Transit expects to open two new stations this spring, one in the Seattle neighborhood of Capitol Hill and the other at Husky Stadium next to the University of Washington. Those stations are opening $150 million under budget and six months early. The agency expects light rail to reach Northgate by 2020 and Lynnwood by 2023. That is being paid for with a 0.9

percent sales tax — or 9 cents on every $10 purchase — across the region and an increase in car tabs. In early December, Sound Transit released cost estimates as well as ridership and travel time projections for dozens of projects that would be paid for if voters approve Sound Transit 3. The agency also put out construction options if the new measure is approved for 15, 20 or 25 years. If approved, a typical adult would pay as much as $200 a year in new taxes. “The decisions this board makes in the next year will shape this region for decades to come,” said Dow Constantine, the King County executive, who also chairs the Sound Transit board. “We’re not going to able to do every single thing that has been suggested, but I know this board is up to finding the best investments.” Sound Transit board members hope to come up with a final package by May or June for voters to consider on the November ballot. After the cost estimates were released in early December, the elected officials from Snohomish County on the If the board goes for a longer tax measure — for instance, the 25-year tax — they will be able to construct more light rail and other transit. But voters have twice rejected Sound Transit measures that have asked for too much. Roberts and Stephanson, who does not serve on the Sound Transit board, said that they might need to do away with some costs — maybe fewer stations, for now — to build the spine. They both said that commuters don’t care about any one region, Roberts said. “People don’t go to work in one region and live in one region and only care about the one region,” Roberts said. It’s going to be a delicate, difficult negotiation to get to the right package that the board can support, the elected officials can support and most importantly the voters can support, Stephanson said. “It’s not going to do Snohomish County any good if we get everything we want and the voters of King County vote it down and vice versa,” Stephanson said.

YEAR IN REVIEW

2015: The year of the deal The Herald Business Journal Staff

It’ll probably be written about in business textbooks, explored in college classrooms. Haggen Food & Pharmacy surprised everyone by buying 146 grocery stores during the Albertsons-Safeway merger. Within months, problems emerged and the fallout could threaten the very existence of the Bellingham grocer. Haggen’s big-deal-gone-sideways headlines the top business news stories of 2015. And it will likely continue to make headlines for months to come. Another surprise came when Arlington’s MicroGreen Polymers, once a darling of the clean-tech industry with its eco-friendly cups, suddenly shut its doors. Other business news included an Everett developer who was accused of defrauding foreign investors, union members protesting a decision by Boeing to locate a plant in China and major health institutions in the Puget Sound area announcing intentions to merge. One deal that fell apart was the one between Everett’s Coastal Community Bank and Lynnwood’s Prime Pacific Bank, two of the county’s remaining community banks. On the bright side, Boeing’s KC-46 aerial refueling tanker finally got off the ground after months of delay. “The Air Force is going to love it,” a retired Boeing worker said at the time.

1. Haggen’s spectacular failure Haggen grabbed headlines this year with the $300 million acquisition of 146 stores from Albertsons and Safeway. With the deal, Haggen went from 18 stores with 16 pharmacies in Washington and Oregon to 164 grocery stores with 106 pharmacies all over the West Coast. The company also went from 2,000 employees to more than 10,000, almost overnight. Haggen took over the first of the new stores on Feb. 1, a former Albertsons in Monroe. It quickly became a case of the minnow choking on the whale. The chain faced pricing problems. And then stock problems. By September, Haggen sued Albertsons for $1 billion over the deal. A little more than a week after that, Haggen filed for bankruptcy with a plan to sell or close many of the new stores and reorganize around its core profitable ones. That might not work out. Haggen has asked permission from the bankruptcy court to auction its 37 remaining profitable stores. A hearing is scheduled for January. Independent supermarket researcher David Livingston criticized Haggen during the summer. “They didn’t have the wherewithal to

Shelves were bare at a Haggen in Bellingham in mid-September.

do this deal,” Livingston said. “They were pretty much set up by Albertsons. Albertsons was able to pick exactly who they wanted to take over their stores and they picked the weakest competitor. Were they duped? Yeah, no one argues that.”

2. MicroGreen’s sudden closure Arlington’s MicroGreen Polymers attracted $80 million in investment for

its 8-ounce InCycle coffee cup that was supposed to be cheaper, more durable and more eco-friendly than traditional foam or coated paper cups. Major airlines were serving coffee in the cups. And MicroGreen won a host of industry honors. MicroGreen spent years developing the environmentally friendly cup. And then it all came crashing down. The company struggled to raise tens of millions of dollars needed to ramp up production quickly enough to meet demand and cover the company’s expenses. In January, the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde in Oregon, MicroGreen’s biggest investor, tired of the company failing to make a profit and forced out the company’s longtime chief executive officer, Tom Malone. By April, Microgreen closed, leaving 160 people without work. MicoGreen’s assets — including the technology behind the cups — were bought at auction for $3.5 million in October by Dart Container, the maker of the red Solo cups.

YEAR IN REVIEW 3. Developer accused of fraud Everett developer Lobsang Dargey had been a bright spot for downtown Everett. In 2011, he built the $22 million Potala Village development on Pacific Avenue. And he went on to build a $60 million Potala Place and Farmer’s Market at Grand Avenue and Wall Street. “I love Everett,” Dargey said in 2014. “Everett is like a jewel that not been discovered yet.” Just as the second project was opening, the Securities and Exchange Commission accused Dargey of defrauding foreign investors of millions of dollars. Dargey had raised $125 million from Chinese nationals for Potala Place and another project in Seattle, Potala Tower. The investments came through a federal program called EB-5, which offers a shortcut to a U.S. visa if someone invests in a project that creates jobs in the country. The SEC alleges that Dargey misused and misappropriated millions, including spending money shopping at luxury stores and trips to casinos in Washington and Las Vegas. Dargey’s attorneys have said that the SEC is overstating its case, which comes down to sloppy bookkeeping and not fraud. The case is ongoing.

and continue to be led by a physician board, said Rick Cooper, the clinic’s chief executive. Patients would notice little change, he said, either in dealing with a physician or with insurance issues. “It will be business as usual,” he said. Both deals needed to be agreed to by shareholders as well as insurance regulators.

4. Tanker’s first flight It had the makings of a festive morning. And then everybody held their breath collectively. After months of delay and hundreds of millions of dollars in cost overruns, Boeing’s KC-46 tankers was scheduled for its first flight at Paine Field one morning in late September. But a cool and foggy morning delayed takeoff. Dozens who gathered to watch the plane finally take off, took shelter in the coffee shop of the Future of Flight Aviation Center. By the afternoon, the flight was back on. The plane left Everett at 1:24 p.m. and landed four hours later in Seattle. Boeing is scheduled to deliver 18 combat-ready tankers to the U.S. Air Force by August 2017. The planes will replace the KC-135 Stratotankers, which entered service decades ago. Military pilots have joined Boeing pilots on testing the new plane.

5. Boeing in China Chinese president Xi Jinping flew to Everett, toured the Boeing plant and spent 48 hours in the Puget Sound area. During the visit, Boeing received an order for 300 jets from Chinese companies. Xi left with a commitment from the plane maker to build a 737 finishing plant in China, the company’s first plant outside the U.S.

7. Bank merger denied

Boeing’s first KC-46 aerial refueling tanker deploys its refueling boom for the first time during a test flight accompanied by a U.S. Air Force fighter jet.

Boeing follows Airbus’ lead in placing a plant in China; the European airplane maker opened one there in 2008. Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Ray Conner told workers that the new plant would not reduce 737 Program employment in Washington. That didn’t prevent union workers from protesting outside the Everett and Renton plants during Xi’s visit. “The more capacity created outside Washington, the harder it makes it for aerospace workers in Washington to compete,” said Jon Holden, president of District Lodge 751 of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers.

6. Health care mergers planned The Everett Clinic was founded in 1924. Group Health started in 1947. Both have become institutions in the Puget Sound area. And both were potentially merging with larger health care companies. The Everett Clinic announced plans in September to merge with Denver, Coloradobased DaVita Healthcare. In December, Group Health announced that it was being purchased by Kaiser Permanente, based in Oakland, California. The Everett Clinic will keep its name

There was some poetry to the idea: The largest bank headquartered in Snohomish County would merge with the oldest. But it was not to be. Everett’s Coastal Community Bank and Lynnwood’s Prime Pacific announced plans to combine in April. Coastal, with 11 branches, is mainly based in central and northern Snohomish County. Prime Pacific, with three branches, is based in the southern part of Snohomish and northern part of King County. Coastal hoped to expand to the south with the merger. When the merger was announced, Prime Pacific was still operating under a consent order from the federal Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the result of what the government called unsafe and unsound banking during the recession. In June, Prime Pacific was released from that order. And Prime Pacific was on track to have three consecutive profitable years. With the improved financial footing, Prime Pacific’s shareholders voted down the merger in October.

Mountain Pacific Bank is a True Local Community Bank founded in Snohomish County in 2006. Our Bank is well capitalized with total assets over $180 million and three branches: Everett, Lynnwood and Ballard, to serve our customers. Over the past several years, the local banking industry has undergone many changes. Mountain Pacific Bank is proud that we were able to survive and keep ownership local. We believe people want to “Keep it Local”, including their banking. As a result, the Bank has adopted the tagline “Keeping it Local.” What this means is Mountain Pacific Bank intends to remain a True Local Community Bank where local people are employed to serve local people. When you call us, you are going to talk to a live person that works here locally. If you have a question the answer is always right here. Mountain Pacific Bank is an asset to the Community. Our Employees, Directors and their families serve on local boards, participate in and sponsor community events, and volunteer for local charitable organizations. We work hard to contribute to the Community, and we take great pride in that commitment. We’re not just in this Community, we’re part of it; so we want to make sure we do our part to make it a better place to live. At Mountain Pacific Bank, we are committed to providing superior quality and personalized banking services. We have a dedicated staff eager to service your banking needs. I invite you to “Keep it Local” and bank with Mountain Pacific Bank; you will be happy you did.

CONVENIENCE IS

WHERE YOU ARE NOT WHERE THE BANK IS.

Many banks love to brag about their convenient locations. But at Mountain Pacific Bank, we think about convenience from your perspective, not ours. It’s why we offer our Mobile Branch Service throughout Snohomish County, bringing banking right to your business location. If you’re looking for a bank that knows you have better things to do than drive to the bank, choose Mountain Pacific. We’ll be there for you — wherever you need us to be.

Keeping it local

Dan Ollis, Whidbey Coffee Family man Mud runner Coffee connoisseur

Each and every one of us is an original. Shaped by unique inuences that make us who we are today. Here at Heritage Bank, we think differences can build a better bank, too. That’s why we share the best ideas from across all of our branches and local communities with one goal in mind: to serve our customers better every day. By sharing our strengths, we’re able to offer customers like Dan Ollis—and you—more than a community bank. But rather, a community oƒ banks.
