Reflections on the 2018 Washington Manufacturing Awards


Last week, Berntson Porter team specialists in wholesale distribution and manufacturing attended Seattle Business Magazine’s Washington Manufacturing Awards banquet, along with several other CAMPS members.  The annual event was an inspiring evening for those who serve these industries, including service professionals, non-profits and government officials.  In addition to honoring several notable, privately-held Puget Sound area companies in a wide range of categories, we discovered that the Kent Valley is the 4th largest distribution and manufacturing center in the nation!  We also learned about some really inspiring things that companies in the region are doing, where people have turned a passion into viable business, solving community and environmental problems through product and process innovation, and providing gainful employment for disadvantaged individuals.  The takeaway from the night, which can be universally applied to all who were in attendance, was that here in Washington, “we make really cool [stuff]!”

If you’re a distributor or manufacturer in the Puget Sound area, we’d love to connect with you and learn more about the cool things you’re doing!
