Snohomish County: Opportunity Lives Here

The cities and towns of Snohomish County offer the perfect balance of opportunities: urban/rural, manufacturing/research and maritime/alpine.

Snohomish County’s duality illustrates its success as a hub for a diverse set of industries and multinational companies. Thriving aerospace, agriculture, manufacturing, and technology industries power our communities, resulting in the highest concentration of advanced manufacturing jobs west of the Rocky Mountains and the highest concentration of engineers in Washington. The resultant robust and diverse regional economy includes “anchor tenants” such as Boeing, Philips and Fortive/Fluke, combined with the County’s proximity to global brands like Microsoft, Amazon, Starbucks and T-Mobile.  As a collaborative community where the private and public sectors partner to maximize economic vitality, this diversity of industries lays a foundation for business success.
