LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT

A

t the time of this writing, 2012 was quickly coming to a close and the fiscal cliff was still facing us as a nation, the Mayan calendar was ending in just a few days, and I still had to finish my Christmas shopping! Fast forward two months and we now know the answers to many of those things that were looming in front of us . . . my guess is that the fiscal cliff issue was “kicked down the road,” the Mayans were wrong because you are now reading this, and I managed to get the Christmas shopping done. Every day, we face uncertainty and all we can do is make our best guess as to what might happen and make decisions based on that. As Ben Franklin stated,“those things that hurt, instruct.” We have weathered some very difficult economic storms over the past few years and have learned a lot through the process. Despite all of the turmoil in the world, it appears the economy is starting to show some small signs of recovery.

JOHN VOTH Sr Vice President, Peoples Bank

During this past year, the board focused on living out the mission of the organization by looking at the big picture and how we can work as an organization to attract companies and business to our county. One item we supported was the Tourism Promotion Area (TPA) that would allow our local hoteliers to market and attract various groups and events to our county. We also focused our efforts on two opportunities that I would call “Legacy” projects for our county - the Tethys Bottling Plant and the North Cascades Resort projects. I call them Legacy projects because of the long term affect they will have on the job market and the spinoff businesses & industries that will emerge because of them being here. Opportunities like this only come up once every 20-30 years. We have a diverse economy in our county and have many Legacy industries in the valley already like the refineries, the lumber mills, aerospace, the boat industry, agriculture and many more – all bringing good jobs and complementary businesses to our valley. Over the years, EDASC has played a key role in bringing many of these key businesses into our valley. The great economist Milton Friedman once said, “one of the great mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions, rather than their results.” People might ask what we are about and what we do. Look around you. I believe that EDASC has shown strong results over the years and in part due to the continued support from the members. It has been my pleasure serving you as the EDASC Board President this past year. Thank you for your continued support as EDASC lives out its mission to “enhance Skagit County’s quality of life through the creation and preservation of healthy businesses and good jobs.” May you and your business have a healthy and prosperous 2013!

LETTER FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR “Recruiting business and assisting business requires the participation of many groups and individuals. The recruitment of HEXCEL is a prime example. From a referral by ABC Yacht Carters to a HEXCEL executive vacationing in Skagit County, to the leadership of the Port of Skagit County, to more than 20 groups and individuals that supported and cooperated with the effort, the success of the project required the work of many hands.” A lot has changed since those words appeared in this space in 1990.

A

rolodex, a notepad, mail delivery and analog phones were at the foundation of our communication system. DON WICK Today it’s e-mail, a Web-page, Facebook, Linked-In, Twitter, and smart phones that provide the backbone of Executive Director, our system.

EDASC

But, it is not the latest app on a smart phone, the color of the maps on our website or the rapid tweets that we value most, it is the people of this great community. It’s the people of Skagit County working together collaborating in partnerships that is our greatest tool in attracting and assisting business. That has never changed. Another element that has not changed is the value of a job. Today as our economy continues to recover, it is more important than ever to remind ourselves how vital a job is to a mother, a father, a family—to an entire community. A job not only provides a livelihood—it provides a living. It allows us to contribute to our community: to the school system, to youth groups, our church, to the environment, to our favorite charity. As former EDASC Board president Mike Crawford says, “When you have a job you even have time to coach Little League.” The value of a job is so very, very important to the health of our community. The most important feature in working to create jobs in this community is the unselfish collaboration of so many organizations and individuals. That spirit of cooperation that occurred 23 years ago continues to be important today. With a significant expansion underway, HEXCEL will provide up to 100 additional jobs to the Skagit economy.

2012 ANNUAL REPORT Dakota Creek Industries– Port of Anacortes Dakota Creek Industries, located at the Port of Anacortes, was awarded the second Auxiliary General Oceanographic Research Vessel (AGOR) for the Navy in 2012.

Current employment is 225 and is expected to rise toward 300 over the next 18 months.

Mass Spec Detectives– Sedro-Woolley

JOBS & ECONOMIC GROWTH Northern Marine- Anacortes EDASC assisted Northern Marine, formerly New World Yachts, with capital development this year, and they completed and launched a $12 million, 95 foot luxury yacht in late 2012. They have also been awarded contracts to build two, 58 foot commercial fishing vessels for $2.5 million each. They anticipate completion of the vessels this spring and fall. The company added 19 jobs this year, and currently has 64 full time employees.

Aurinco– Anacortes This technology firm designs and sells marine solar electrical systems for work and pleasure vessels, including properly sized solar panels, charge controllers, batteries and support technology.

Aurinco exports to the Pacific Rim, Canada and Mexico.

Blank Law + Technology– Mount Vernon EDASC assisted the City of Mount Vernon in relocating this cutting edge computer forensics and cloud computing firm. Renovations are currently under way at the former site of Sager’s Restaurant, and will be completed in Spring 2013. They will employ 30 people.

In 2012, they also achieved AS9100C certification, in accordance with the standardized quality management system for aviation space and defense industries. Both of their facilities in Sedro-Woolley and Hamilton, WA are AS9100C certified.

Ana-Cross Stitch– Anacortes An inspiring story of a local retailer’s success during the recession, this historic Fidalgo Island needlework shop needed a line of credit to replenish inventory for the approaching busy season. EDASC helped this business acquire additional funding and preserve jobs. Sales are up significantly and the future is bright for this mainstay on Commercial Avenue.

Mavrik Marine– Port of Skagit A manufacturer of aluminum workboats relocated to a Port of Skagit facility in La Conner from Whatcom County in 2011. They expanded into a building at the Port of Skagit in 2012. Mavrik employs 15 workers.

Tesoro– Anacortes The construction and completion of the $56 million crude railcar offloading facility that can accommodate the delivery of 50,000 barrels of crude oil per day straight from the Bakken crude oil fields of North Dakota was a significant economic project for Tesoro and Skagit County. Building the facility required large amounts of material including: • 850,000 tons of crushed surface base course, pit run, quarry spalls, ballast that was sourced from five local quarries (Whidbey Island, Conway, Everson, Bow Hill, Anacortes) • At peak, the week of April 9th, over 100 trucks a day hauled 750 loads/10-hr Day, including backhaul of 126,000 tons of soil spoils to two quarry sites. This is an unconfirmed record for haul volume over public infrastructure. • 30,000 Linear Feet of pipe, most of it underground and fabricated in modules at local shops • 6,000 Cubic Yards (CY) of concrete (poured 1,100 CY in single day) • 29,000 Linear Feet of rail For the local community, the Anacortes Crude Offloading Facility project provided a significant boost to local jobs and influx of cash, during a time that our local and state economy needed a “shovel ready” shot in the arm. Employment of local construction


2012 ANNUAL REPORT contractors peaked at 165 on-site. During peak materials movement in April, there were 105 truck drivers, and numerous additional offsite quarry workers, supply vendors, maintenance, and other support workers who were gainfully employed.

Feasibility Study On A Proposed Resort– SEDRO-WOOLLEY EDASC retained E.D. Hovee & Company to study the potential economic and fiscal benefits of a proposed resort on the former Northern State Hospital Grounds in Sedro-Woolley. The study shows that the North Cascades Resort would provide a significant boost to the local economy and also generate substantial tax benefits to state, regional and local public service providers.

EDASC provides a number of services to existing and new businesses within our community. Services are provided at no cost through the support of a number of partners including: Washington State Department of Commerce, Small Business Administration, the Washington Small Business Development Center Network, USDA Rural Development, and Skagit Valley College.

SMALL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT CENTER / BUSINESS RETENTION & EXPANSION The Economic Development Association of Skagit County offers technical assistance to businesses through the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) and our Business Retention & Expansion (BRE) programs. Working to ensure the survival and growth of existing Skagit County businesses is an important part of EDASC’s mission for economic development.

Skagit.org

In partnership with the Washington Employment Security Department, the Washington Division of Vocational Rehabilitation and the Washington Department of Services for the Blind EDASC has worked with individuals looking to create their own job and those additional jobs that come with a thriving business. Our work with Employment Security provides services to those drawing unemployment benefits while our work with the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation and Services for the Blind, provides services to those looking to enhance their disability income or transition to full self-support. In 2012, EDASC worked with more than 64 entrepreneurs in these programs through individually designed efforts drawing on the very best of EDASC’s resources: one-on-one business counseling, technical assistance, and educational workshops designed to build business management knowledge.

Workshops Every month EDASC hosts a number of workshops on a wide range of business topics. Workshops focus on emerging trends and best practices to give our business owners every possible advantage. Sessions are streamed live on the internet to allow those unable to attend in-person full access to the material presented. The response to the workshops has been very positive both in terms of satisfaction surveys and in the continuously growing number of attendees. In 2012, 706 participants attended 61 workshops.

LATINO BUSINESS RETENTION AND EXPANSION PROGRAM (LBRE PROGRAM) “EL PROGRAMA PARA LA RETENCION Y EXPANSION DEL COMERCIO LATINO” In partnership with Skagit Valley College, EDASC’s Latino Business Retention and Expansion Program is also supported by funding from the Small Business Development Center and a sponsorship from Bank of America. Since the program was established in 2004, it has assisted Latino business owners in securing more than $2 million in loans. The LBRE Mission is to provide one-on-one business counseling and broad-based support for Latino entrepreneurs and business owners for start-ups and business expansion. Our customized bilingual approach focuses on building bridges with the local community through cultural awareness and collaborative educational opportunities. We do this by advocating for our clients, providing access to capital, business education aimed at financial literacy, and support with strategic planning, marketing, resource awareness and networking. EDASC’s LBRE program has been so successful it is being adopted as a model program and is being replicated across the state.

TOURISM PROMOTION AREA EDASC is working with local hoteliers and Chambers of Commerce to create a Skagit Tourism Bureau. Under State law special districts – called Tourism Promotion Areas - can be formed to promote tourism in the local community. EDASC is the fiscal agent for a special grant from the Skagit County Lodging Tax Fund to further develop this proposal. This partnership began in 2006 through the Chambers and local hotels.

2012 ANNUAL REPORT EDASC FOUNDATION

INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENT

Skagit County Public Works & Public Facilities reports a number of significant improvements in capital projects that increased the safety and ease of transportation throughout the County in the past year. These include $500,000 for Phase II of the City of Mount Vernon’s Downtown & Waterfront Flood Control, and $75,900 for the PUD #1 of Skagit County’s expansion of Fiber Optics in East Skagit County. $230,000 was provided to the Port of Anacortes mooring dolphin replacement, and the Port of Skagit received $158,600 for a Malting & Brewery Incubator. The partnership between Skagit County and the City of Mount Vernon on the $13 milllion Anderson-LaVenture Extension Project is expected to be completed in Fall 2013. It is one of the most regionally significant transportation projects for Skagit County and the City of Mount Vernon. Not only will it create quicker access to I-5 from the east, it includes improvements to Bonnie Rae Park and Little Mountain Park Trails. The Port of Anacortes is responsible for the operation, growth, and development of a major deep-water port, 3 marine terminals, the Cap Sante Marina, and Anacortes Airport. Marine Terminals include Pier 1 (home of Dakota Creek Industries Shipyards and the Port of Anacortes offices), Curtis Wharf (commercial dock and wharf) which holds ships up to 480 feet, and Pier 2 (log and dry bulk cargo loading) which is available for short term moorage up to 1,133 feet). Cap Sante Marina is a publicly operated marina that has a total of 943 slips with 100-150 slips used for guest moorage. Slips are able to accommodate ships up to 120 feet in length. The Anacortes Airport is located about three miles west of downtown and features a 3,018-foot long by 60 foot wide lighted asphalt runway located on approximately 196 acres. Parking facilities include 69 tie downs and 39 public hangars. The Port of Skagit completed the $14.4-million, Runway 11-29, crown conversion project at Skagit Regional Airport, the port’s most

10 EDASC Member Services Guide / 2013

expensive infrastructure project of all time. The project brings the runway into compliance with FAA standards for large business jets. As a result of the project, Skagit County now has an airport with a state-of-the-art runway that will serve our needs for years to come. The Port of Skagit is cooperating with a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers dredging project in the Swinomish Channel, which will be completed in early 2013. The Port of Skagit’s Marina assets will be protected as a result. The Port of Skagit was able to purchase two buildings at the La Conner Marina from Westport Marine during 2012. These were immediately leased to two existing tenants, La Conner Maritime Services and Mavrik Marine, to allow them to expand. In time, this will result in the addition of about 100 good jobs in the port district. The Port also prepared a port building to house a new malting facility that will process locally grown grains for brewers and distillers. The City of Anacortes completed street improvements for the planned 33-acre Willette Business Park. Zoned for ready-to-build light industrial, the city touts easy access to I-5, access to two million gallons of potable water per day, and readily available utilities including water, sewer, natural gas, fiber optics and power as benefits to businesses looking to locate in the business park. At $57 million, the upgrade to the Anacortes Water Treatment Plant is the largest Public Works project in the history of Skagit County. The Plant services Anacortes, La Conner, Oak Harbor, Whidbey Naval Air Station, the Shell and Tesoro Refineries and many large farms in western Skagit County. This project will be completed on time and on budget in early 2013, it will have the ability to grow with the projected increase in water usage for the next 75 to 100 years. The project provided 900 much need jobs to complete the construction. The City Of Burlington completed a new 20-year comprehensive Sewer Plan in 2012, and improved the fiber-optic connections to traffic signals and sewer and storm water pump stations. In 2013, the City plans to pave portions of Bouslog Road and HWY 99 with DOT funding, and construct a pedestrian and bike underpass at 1-5 along Gages Slough. The Town of La Conner was awarded $750,000 of State funds to complete phases 1&2 of a 5 phase, $4 million Boardwalk project by winter 2013. They are currently pursuing other funding opportunities to complete the final 3 phases. The Public Works Department also completed Second Street roadway and utility improvements in March of 2012 using Transportation Improvement Board funds. In 2014, they look to launch a “Safe Route To Schools” project in partnership with the Swinomish Tribe, Skagit County, and the La Conner School District. Construction on the Waterfront Revitalization Phase II will begin in Spring of 2013 and will involve the construction of 1,650 linear feet of floodwall to protect historic downtown Mount Vernon, 1,650 linear feet of a 24 foot wide river walk and trail connection to the city’s regional trail system and a 30,000 square foot public riverfront park between Gates and Myrtle Streets. The City of Mount Vernon, in partnership with Skagit County is also nearing completion of the $13 million Anderson-LaVenture road extension project that will divert 20% of traffic on College Way to 1-5. In 2013 the City of Sedro-Woolley will be reconstructing the entrance from Cook Road to SR 20 in a nearly $7.0M project designed to support businesses, relieve traffic congestion and improve safety. The City will also be building new sidewalks up SR 9/Township, rebuilding sidewalks on 3rd and repaving 3rd Street. Sedro-Woolley continues to focus on infrastructure projects that will support future growth and investment in the community.

Skagit Valley College (SVC) will receive $243,587 over the next three years to focus on increasing the number of sustainable urban and small farm agriculture technicians who have the education to meet current and projected workforce demands for food production in the Puget Sound bioregion. These funds are SVC’s portion of a $900,000 National Science Foundation grant for Sustainable Agriculture Education (SAgE) that was awarded to SVC, Seattle Central Community College, Washington State University, VIVA Farms, of Burlington, and led by Edmonds Community College. Northwest Career & Technical Academy, designed for Junior and Senior high school students, held their first Composite Technology class this past July. The class is an introduction to advanced composite manufacturing with an emphasis on thermoset and prepreg technology. The program is part of a consortium of community and technical colleges working to create job opportunities in the growing Aerospace cluster.

EDASC’S Intern Program The program works in partnership with Western Washington University’s outstanding Manufacturing and Supply Chain Management Program to place student interns in local manufacturing operations. EDASC works with local business leaders to identify internship opportunities.

HEALTH CARE

Skagit Regional Health, which includes Skagit Valley Hospital and 10 Skagit Regional Clinics, continues to be the area’s largest employer with more than 1,800 employees. Construction begins in Spring 2013 for a new Skagit Regional Clinic – located on Freeway Drive in Mount Vernon, which will open in Spring 2014 with Urgent Care, pediatrics, dermatology, lab, pharmacy and X-ray. Skagit Regional Health’s graduate medical education program continues to grow with 22, third and fourth year, medical students and the addition of residency programs in Family Medicine and Internal Medicine in 2012. In the past four years, the hospital recruited more than 100 new providers to the area, creating enhanced employment opportunities and access to health care services for area residents. Skagit Valley Hospital, Island Hospital in Anacortes and Cascade Valley Hospital in Arlington continue to work together under an interlocal agreement to seek ways to collaborate to benefit the patients of the community. Island Hospital currently has 733 employees, with an annual payroll of $32 million. United General Hospital in Sedro-Woolley has filed a letter of intent with PeaceHealth to pursue a formal alliance between the two entities. They hope to complete the application and review process by the Spring of 2013, so that the alliance would become effective July 1, 2013.

TESORO TESORO CONTINUES TO INVEST IN THE FUTURE

By Steve Berentsen

ANACORTES – It is an industrial achievement boasting dozens of “gee whiz” elements, but more impressive is the Tesoro Corporation’s investment in a $56 million Anacortes rail offloading facility (CROF) that boosted the local economy and confirmed the Texas-based company’s ongoing commitment to fuel production in the Pacific Northwest. Dozens of local dignitaries gathered at the Anacortes Refinery late last year to join Tesoro executives, local employees and contractors in celebration of completion of an 18.6-acre rail offloading facility conceived in 2011 and constructed in 2012. Those gathered for the “inauguration” event listened to a report of notable project construction elements ranging from 850,000 tons of fill material to 7,000 feet of above-ground pipeline transporting crude oil from a quarter-mile long offloading pad. At project peak in early April, more than 100 trucks hauled 750 loads per day from five area quarries. Tesoro guests also learned that the now operational facility employs 35 full-time workers who routinely unload 100-tank-car deliveries of crude oil from North Dakota’s Bakken region. In a presentation during the November 29 event, Tesoro CEO Greg Goff noted that the Anacortes rail offloading facility is part of a dramatic national story. “By 2020,” he said, “the U.S. will be the biggest crude oil producer in the world because of crude from Bakken.” Tesoro Refinery Manager Dan Cameron noted that the rail

Skagit.org

offloading facility represents a critical investment in terms of competition in the marketplace. “The refining business is competitive,” said Cameron. “We don’t have a lot of margin.” Bakken crude is less expensive than oil from the international market or Alaska’s North Slope, and it also represents a key shift away from dependence on crude from other nations. Additionally, rail delivery will be less expensive than traditional pipeline or tanker options. Tesoro’s Anacortes Refinery has played a dominant role in the local economy since it was built by Shell in 1955. Shell’s investment in the facility was ongoing until sale of the refinery to Tesoro in 1998, and Tesoro has continued to invest in improvements including an emissions reduction unit and the new rail offloading facility. Cameron, who recently returned to the refinery and Skagit County after a five-year assignment as Refinery Manager for Tesoro in Salt Lake City, said the plant’s 350 employees continue to set this refinery apart from the competition. “I am grateful,” said Cameron, “to have ‘grown up’ in this industry working for and with some of the finest people in the oil business. It is a privilege to return to Anacortes – to partner with a great group of people whose talents and commitment will continue to be a vital part of our local economy and provide meaningful employment to hundreds of Tesoro and contract employees.”

HEXCEL THE BUSINESS OF ATTRACTING BUSINESSES TO SKAGIT COUNTY

By Stacie Zinn Roberts

I

t was early evening, and Don Wick, executive director of EDASC, had just stopped at a local grocery store in Mount Vernon to pick up a few items before heading home after a day at the office. Strolling the aisles, he passed by shelves stocked with canned soups, bottled spices, bags of rice. A man approached. “I’ll never forget it,” Wick says, “His name is Mike Collins. He stopped me in the grocery store to tell me that he had been out of work for a while but had recently been hired by a manufacturing company that EDASC helped to recruit into Skagit County. He said, ‘I want to thank you. This job means a great deal to me and my family.’” Wick says, “That’s why I do this work.” In the more than 25 years that Don Wick, and the staff of the Economic Development Association of Skagit County, has worked to attract new businesses into the area, between 80 and 100 new companies have relocated or opened new facilities here. Some hired 10 people. Some hired hundreds. The overall economic impact over the past quarter century in Skagit County is difficult to quantify. But it’s safe to say that the ripple effect is in the millions of dollars in increased tax base and jobs created.

Sierra Pacific Industries Sierra Pacific Industries is the second largest lumber producer in the United States and employs 180 people at its 62-acre lumber mill in Skagit County. The facility opened in 2006, and is one of three such Sierra Pacific Industries mills in Washington State. But the Skagit location almost didn’t happen at all. As Sheri Nelson, community relations manager for Sierra Pacific, explains it, in 2004, the company had originally considered the 142-acre site of the Fredonia Business Park, located at the corner of Highway 20 and Farm to Market Road in Mount Vernon. Sierra Pacific was hoping to have water access from wherever they located their plant. The Skagit site was landlocked but had easy access to roadway and rail. While the company investigated other locations, Don Wick and the EDASC staff kept in touch with Sierra Pacific. “I would say that Don Wick, and his assistance, was instrumental in bringing Sierra Pacific back into Skagit County. He not only helped us with the parcel, he took the time to show us a lot of other

12 EDASC Member Services Guide / 2013

properties, made contact with folks that he knows so we could see that it was the best fit for our needs. Even after we decided, he went above and beyond to help us get connected with the right people for permitting, to develop a network in a region we didn’t know very well. It’s almost overwhelming to try to figure out who to call if you have a pipeline question, a drainage question, who to reach out to. He literally helped us lay down the foundation of those contacts that were so crucial to us and really helped the project become a seamless and smooth process.” A year later, the mill was up and running. Nelson says the company decided that water access wasn’t as critical as initially thought and the site’s access to Highway 20, combined with the rail line that runs past the property allowing for easy shipping, “really fit our needs.” Today, the Redding, California, based company manages 230,000 acres of forest land in Washington State, a large chunk of which is located in Skagit, Whatcom and Island counties. The Skagit County mill produces dimensional lumber for the construction industry including 2 x 4’s, 2 x 6’s and 2 x 12’s, made from Washington


grown trees the company plants, harvests, and uses for raw materials. In addition, scrap lumber at the mill is used as fuel for a 28-megawatt cogeneration facility that powers the entire plant and produces enough energy to sell back to the electrical grid to power local homes and businesses.

Hexcel Corporation When Boeing recommended to the folks at Hexcel Corporation that they build a plant near their Everett facility, the manufacturer of high-tech honeycomb material used to construct airplane components, based in Stamford, Connecticut, began a search in four counties in Washington State for the right location. Jim Collins, plant manager for Hexcel Corporation, says the goal for the site was to be close enough to Boeing but not so close that they’d compete with the aerospace giant for employees. After Hexcel made site visits to Skagit County, EDASC worked with the Port of Skagit through the weekend to put together a proposal to convince Hexcel that Skagit should be their choice for an Evergreen State location. Don Wick, Patti Burklund, the Port of Skagit’s then executive director, engineer Gary Sturdy, and contractor Oran Jones, flew to Casa Grande, Arizona and toured a Hexcel plant, then traveled to Hexcel headquarters in Dublin, California, to make their presentation. “It outshined all of the others,” Collins says. The proposal included incentives as well as labor and industry metrics that pled the case for Skagit. Hexcel opened their manufacturing plant at the Port of Skagit in Burlington in 1990, with a 50,000 sq. ft. facility that recently expanded to 100,000 sq.ft. and today employs 130 people. Business is booming in the aerospace sector. Collins says Hexcel expects to nearly double their workforce within five years.

Pacific Woodtech Corporation Pacific Woodtech Corporation employs more than 200 people who produce laminated veneer lumber, an engineered wood product, at its 30-acre site in Burlington. The company that owns Pacific Woodtech, Japan-based ITOCHU, already had a facility in Vancouver, BC, but wanted a US-based operation to more easily sell their products into the United States while still being closely located to their raw materials sourced out of Canada. David DeWitte, president and CEO of Pacific Woodtech, says the search for a new site stretched along the I-5 corridor from Whatcom to Snohomish counties. “Don Wick and his team did a super job of educating the ITOCHU folks about the

Skagit.org

resources in the area, the characteristics of the community, the availability of workforce, the access to shipping lanes through rail, highway and ocean going ships. We export a great deal of product to South Asia and having I-5 access straight to the Port of Seattle or the Port of Tacoma was very important to us,” DeWitte says. “EDASC helped find potential industrial sites. EDASC is an excellent source of data related to employment levels, wage levels and other costs that can influence a manufacturing business like utility rates, tax levels and so forth.” The company was founded in 1998 at the Burlington Business Park. DeWitte says Pacific Woodtech’s relationship with EDASC continues to this day. The company often sends representatives to EDASC events and educational workshops to help DeWitte and his employees stay engaged in the Skagit business world. “EDASC is the glue that keeps the business community together,” DeWitte says.

Team Corporation Before Team Corporation moved its corporate headquarters to the tree lined streets of the Port of Skagit in Burlington in 1993, they were located in Los Angeles in a building with bars on every window. The decision to leave California was a “quality of life issue” says Bruce Huntley, COO of the company. Huntley and the three other principals of the company are all outdoorsmen who often traveled to Washington to pursue cycling and other sports. “I like the small town atmosphere, no traffic, the surroundings,” Huntley says. Don Wick and Patti Burklund from the Port of Skagit were instrumental in attracting Team Corporation here, Huntley says. “They made two trips to the LA area,” Huntley says. Among the benefits offered by the Port and EDASC, Huntley says, were

“the fact that the Port leased the land to us, we got tax breaks from the county, and they helped us recruit new employees.” Team Corporation makes highly sensitive and complex vibration testing equipment for the military, as well as for companies in aerospace, automotive and other industries. Todd Thompson, global sales manager for Team Corporation, says the company’s equipment is so specialized that Team recruits young engineers right out of college, and then teaches them the Team systems. “You can’t train in school for what we do, it’s so unique,” Thompson says. Having three major universities with engineering programs within relative proximity to Skagit County, (Western Washington University, University of Washington and Washington State University), was a real bonus to the company. “ Our biggest problem in Southern California was we couldn’t hold on to engineers. They would work for us a year or two and look around and say ‘I can’t afford a house here, I don’t want to raise a family here.’ And they would go to Utah or Colorado. That happened to us twice,” Huntley says. Offering a Skagit County location to a new employee, Huntley says, affords the company an opportunity to build a more stable workforce. “We pick someone who wants to live here,” he says. Team Corporation now employs 42 people in approximately 20,000 sq.ft. of manufacturing and office space. In the last six months, with a rebound in the national economy, the EDASC team has noted an increase in inquiries for relocation information on Skagit County. The association has put plans in place to be poised to get ahead of the economic uptick that begin with doubling sales efforts aimed at drawing new companies to the valley. EDASC has added additional staff to market the region and expanded all efforts geared toward new business attraction.

EDASC Member Services Guide / 2013 13


Outreach programs will be conducted through several methodologies. Staff will attend multiple industry specific tradeshows throughout the United States and Canada in 2013 to raise awareness of Skagit County. They will focus on a few key industries that mesh well with the existing business community: aerospace, small to medium manufacturing, composites, wood products, agriculture and marine. EDASC will also continue to work with a site location company that specializes in promoting regions to companies interested in moving to a new area. EDASC’s website (www.skagit.org) was revamped in August. Plans are underway to further augment the website with a commercial and industrial real estate search tool and mapping system that allows

prospective businesses to get a look at what properties are vacant and/or for sale in the area. In the end, Wick says the key to attracting new businesses to the area is all about building trust and relationships with prospective new companies. And those relationships don’t end once the company locates to Skagit County. Sierra Pacific’s Sheri Nelson, who is based in Aberdeen in the southern part of Washington State, says the ongoing relationship with EDASC is critical to her company’s success. “I work a lot with EDASC now that we’re up and running, and have been since 2006. I rely heavily on EDASC to keep me informed of legislative issues that could impact us, to network with folks in Skagit, to help

with questions and concerns, or to get our information out, as well as information as far as what is going on in the county,” Nelson says. “Since I travel so frequently, it would be very difficult for me to do my job without the support of EDASC. I would say they help support Sierra Pacific in everything that we do.” Business attraction and retention is key to EDASC’s mission to “enhance Skagit County’s quality of life through the creation and preservation of healthy businesses and good jobs.” “The most important thing we can do is ensure that people have great jobs for their families. That makes for a healthier community in every aspect, from education to the environment,” Wick says. “It’s just so vital.”

JANICKI

“YES WE CAN” ATTITUDE NETS JANICKI INDUSTRIES “MANUFACTURER OF THE YEAR” AWARD By Hilary Parker

J

anicki Industries of Sedro-Woolley was named “Manufacturer of the Year” for 2012 by the Association of Washington Business. While 2012 marked some great accomplishments for the company, the award was really several years in the making, as Janicki put together a string of successes and managed the growing pains that went along with rapid expansion. As the recession loomed, Janicki Industries was already in the midst of expansion plans – namely the new plant in Hamilton that would provide 250 new jobs to eastern Skagit County. Once ramped up and operational in 2008, the traditional streams of work orders were slowing due to the economy, so Janicki’s sales team branched out into new markets, especially in Europe. Wind energy and commercial airplane components in these markets became new revenue streams. On the heels of that expansion came the announcement that Janicki would open a plant in Utah to machine components for the Department of Defense’s F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. All the while, the Janicki “way,” characterized by innovation and supportive senior management, was manifesting as projects such as the BMW Oracle yacht that won the 33rd America’s Cup in 2010. Rich McCabe, vice president of engineering and manufacturing, attribute

the success to a “can-do” attitude that comes from the top, as founders John and Peter Janicki have always encouraged their employees to push the envelope in the name of progress. “The culture is ‘Yes we can.’ We have a shop that doesn’t say no,” McCabe said. Senior management backs its employees by investing in the Janicki team with capital improvements as well as human capital, bringing in the right people to do the job. Creative problem solving in all areas of company, from accounting to planning to engineering, have given Janicki Industries the reputation for being able to solve any engineering problem their customers hand to them. The diversification has served them well over the long haul of the recession. Diversification also has led the company down a different path from past projects that relied on their engineering team’s ingenuity. With a handful of new manufacturing certifications, including AS9100C, and the installation of a new autoclave and clean room at the Hamilton plant, Janicki is now primed and ready to take on production of commercial airplane parts. This is a huge win for the company says CFO Lisa Janicki, because the market for commercial air is expected to boom. Contracts for manufacturing parts will keep the production lines busy over the next

Janicki NASA Project

few years. The opening of the Hamilton facility greatly increased the company’s production capacity, which it is now recognized for with the AWB manufacturing award, and Lisa Janicki credits EDASC with helping make it all happen. “We are really fortunate that EDASC is supportive of our business,” she said, citing their work to help identify grants to make the project possible, as well as working with Skagit County government to speed installation of fiber optic cabling to the town of Hamilton. With the Manufacturer of the Year award as well as an award from Northrop Grumman recognizing Janicki as one of its top suppliers, it seems Janicki is poised to celebrate it’s 20th anniversary this year in fine style.

Haggen The Haggen legacy began in 1933, when the company was founded by Ben and Dorothy Haggen and Doug Clark in Bellingham, Washington. Since then, the company has grown to 28 stores, but Haggen remains dedicated to providing customers with the very best quality of meat, seafood, produce, baked goods and more, as well as exceptional service. Some of our most recent innovations have been inspired by the products and lifestyle of the Pacific Northwest. Innovation has been a key principle since the beginning. In 1941, Haggen became the first grocery store in the Northwest to offer a self-service meat department. In 1951, Haggen offered customers an in-store bakery. The list of new products and services continues to grow: health and beauty products (1951), FTD Floral Department (1979), first to have fresh seafood on ice (1986), and the first grocery store in the United States with an in-store Starbucks coffee store (1989).

Reaching back to their roots of innovation and providing customers the best shopping experience possible while embracing the culture and traditions of the Northwest, Haggen is in the process of converting all stores to their newest format: Haggen Northwest Fresh. Northwest inspired products and décor create an atmosphere that customers will experience nowhere else, and immediately recognize as an authentic Northwest experience. The product selection includes local farmgrown produce, fish and chips made to order, expanded wine and beer selection,

sustainably harvested seafood, Northwest raised beef, and more. With stores in Washington and Oregon, Haggen, Inc. is the Northwest’s largest independent grocer and one of the nation’s 75 largest grocery chains according to SuperMarket News. Haggen, Inc. employs about 2,700 people.

Big Lake residents debate fire bond measure By LYNSI BURTON Staff Writer

BIG LAKE — About 30 people crammed into the training room of Big Lake Fire Department’s Station 1 Wednesday night to discuss the February bond measure intended to pay for a replacement station — one that would be able to fit everyone attending a meeting.

But the questions posed to the Big Lake fire commissioners and architects from Carletti Architects didn’t address whether the fire district needed an updated station to replace the 64-yearold one. They dealt with the $3 million price tag and whether the new fire hall needs to be as large as the 11,289- square-foot proposal. The issue even sparked its

own Facebook page for public discussion. Residents living within the bounds of the Big Lake fire district — Skagit County Fire District No. 9 — will vote on whether to approve a bond that will levy an additional $.565 per thousand dollars of assessed property value. The fire department has been working for at least seven years

on securing a site for a new station and working to put a measure before voters. The current site on West Big Lake Boulevard is too small to fit all of the station’s equipment, is seismically unfit to withstand an earthquake and doesn’t meet state Labor and Industries standards. See BOND, Page A5

Lawmakers looking at training wage for new employees By RACHEL LA CORTE Associated Press

OLYMPIA — Washington state has the highest state mini minimum wage in the nation, but a new bill being considered by lawmakers would allow some employers to pay a lower “train“train ing wage” to new employees for a certain period of time. The measure heard before the Senate Commerce & Labor Committee on Wednesday would establish a special training certificate for employers with fewer than 50 employees. The certificate would allow them to pay new employees 75 percent of the minimum wage during a training period to last no longer than 680 hours. Washington state’s minimum wage increased by 15 cents this month to $9.19 per hour. Employers would only be able to use the certificate once per employee, and training wages could not be used on more than 10 percent of the employer’s workforce. The bill is sponsored by Sen. Janea Holmquist Newbry, a Republican from Moses Lake who is chairwoman of the committee. A companion bill in the House had a public hearing on Tuesday. Opponents of the measure said that it would hurt low-wage employees. “Workers are still falling behind,” said Stefan Moritz, of Unite Here Local 8, a union representing hotel workers, restaurant workers. Moritz said he believed the bill was “an opening bid to an attack on the minimum wage.” “Full-time workers in our industry are working hard every day to put food on the table and they barely stay above the poverty line,” Moritz told lawmakers. Holmquist Newbry said she’s not trying to circumvent the minimum wage law, but said that employers need some flexibility in order to hire younger employees that they otherwise might not consider. “It’s another additional tool to our employers to put the time and effort into hiring,” she said after the hearing.

Richard M. Simcock, DDS, PS Do you know what an Endodontist is? If you don’t, you most likely aren’t alone. A recent survey by the American Association of Endodontists revealed that 90% of people don’t know. Simply put, an Endodontist is a dental specialist who performs root canals, exclusively. In addition to attending dental school for 4 years, an Endodontist spends an additional 2-3 years of studying and performing complex root canal treatments. During these extra years of training, Endodontists learn to diagnose and treat root canals surgically and non-surgically. Many times patients are concerned that root canal treatment will hurt. Endodontists also have additional training in anesthesia techniques, which aids greatly in assuring their patients’ comfort during treatments. The advancement in current dental technology has also shortened treatment time and helped in the predictability of successful treatment. These advancements include the surgical operating microscope

(magnifies the inside of the tooth), computerized measurements of the root system (more accurate measurements), digital radiographs (decreases radiation), and instrumentation techniques that can negotiate the most complex roots. “The abilities of a specialist increases efficiency, decreases dreaded chair time for patients, and in most cases, results in a painfree experience,” says Richard M. Simcock, DDS, PS., who practices in Mount Vernon. “Endodontists are an important part of

the dental team and work closely with the general dentist to help manage and treat the untimely tooth ache that sometimes occurs”. Next time you are advised you need a root canal, discuss with your general dentist whether an Endodontist would be a good choice for you.

Shell Puget Sound Refinery The Shell Puget Sound Refinery is the second largest of four refineries located in Northern Puget Sound in Northwest Washington State. There are two refineries located near Anacortes. The one currently operated by Shell Oil, was originally constructed by the Texas Company in 1958. The refinery was built to supply West Coast markets originally with Canadian crude oil. The refinery was called the Texaco Anacortes Refinery from 1958-1998. The second refinery in Anacortes was originally constructed under the Shell Oil Company name, located just to the north of the Texaco Refinery. In 1998 when Shell and Texaco created the joint venture called Equilon, regulations prohibited two Shell locations in such close proximity to each other. Tesoro Petroleum bought the original Shell refinery located north of the present Shell refinery. The original Texaco Anacortes refinery became known as the Equilon Refinery from 1998-2002. In March 2002, when Texaco merged with Chevron, Shell

Oil Products US acquired full ownership of the Equilon refinery and continues to operate it as the Shell Puget Sound Refinery. Safety, health and environmental protection are the highest priorities for the refinery. Located in the pristine waters of Northern Puget Sound and at the gateway to the spectacular San Juan Islands, protection of the environment is a primary concern. More than 450 people are directly employed at the refinery. Approximately 250 additional contractors are also employed on an on-going basis. Employees are represent-

ed by United Steelworkers Union (USW) and are very involved in the local Anacortes and Skagit County communities, playing a vital role in making this area a great place to live.

2012 VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR Tina Pullar

Become a Volunteer

Tina Pullar is the General Manager of the Fairfield Inn & Suites, in Burlington, WA. She has worked on a number of EDASC events over the years, but this year- she took her volunteerism to new heights! Not only did she serve as Co-Chair of the 2012 Golf Tournament & Winefest, but she was instrumental in the wildly successful Swing Into The Holidays Dinner, Dance & Auction. Whether she’s giving award winning service to her guests, or attending City Council meetings to support an EDASC project, you can count on Tina! We thank you, Tina, for being a bright light in Skagit County! Congratulations!

EDASC Volunteers benefit from the camaraderie and networking that comes when they meet other members and work together toward a common goal, to support the economic vitality of the Skagit Valley community. Volunteers serve on committees, help plan events, participate in projects, and make a real positive impact in the county. Would you like to work hard and have fun? Contact the EDASC office to learn more about volunteering opportunities. Call 360-336-6114.

Inspiring Success, Delivering Excellence

Skagit Regional Airport

La Conner Marina

Bayview Business Park

The Port of Skagit takes pride in pursuing its mission, Good Jobs for Our Community. • The Port of Skagit and its 80 tenants support more than 1,000 jobs with a combined payroll of about $40 million annually. • Skagit Regional Airport serves as Skagit Valley’s primary on- and off-ramp to the federal airways. It generates around $86 million in annual economic activity for the community. • The port’s La Conner Marina generates some $1 million in local tourism spending per year from boats visiting its guest docks. When you consider the Port of Skagit gets less than two cents of each property tax dollar collected in Skagit County, it’s clear the public is getting a great deal for its investment in the Port of Skagit.
