More Aerospace at Everett

By Karen Robes Meeks

The Port of Everett recently welcomed the new Northwest Aerospace Technologies facility at Latitude Business Park in the port’s Riverside Business Park.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held for the 21-year-old aerospace manufacturer, whose expansion into Everett “fulfills the vision for job creation and economic development the Port has worked diligently to accomplish at the site for many years,” according to the port.

Latitude broke ground last June on the first of two buildings for Northwest Aerospace Technologies, which planned to relocate about 200 employees from its downtown Everett facility.

“NAT’s new Facility is the perfect platform for future growth, and will support a well‐organized operation in both the engineering and manufacturing departments,” said Jim Moore, president of Northwest Aerospace Technologies.“ Our new facility will allow NAT to remain competitive and successful for many years.”
