While I have a few minutes – thought I’d share a few more pictures from the trip. Today – I introduced our aerospace delegates to top executives at Airbus. I think very few Washingtonians realize that we have 720 aerospace supply companies in our state (up 30% since 2005!!). Of course their value is immeasurable to Boeing – but these companies also serve other plane manufacturers around the world. Our meetings with Bombardier and Airbus will no doubt open new doors for these delegates. Couldn’t be more pleased!
Also below are some pictures from our tour of Electroimpact. This company is an aerospace supplier based in Mukilteo that not only supplies Boeing, but designs and builds the massive machines that assemble the A380 wing. Amazing to consider that we have talent from both sides of the Atlantic helping our state economy grow!
