An Aerospace & Defense Perspective from Industry Executive


Workforce:  Anchored by Naval Base Kitsap and tenant commands such as the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard/Intermediate Maintenance Facility and NAVFAC NW, Kitsap’s resident workforce, education and training systems support expansion in aerospace and defense related industries.


Location:  Kitsap’s logistic access for aerospace and defense business is ideal.  Minutes by air to SeaTac, Boeing Seattle and Everett, with highways to Bremerton’s waterfront and I-5, and rail connections to coastal ports and all of America, combined with a fiber optic backbone to make Kitsap a great location for goods, services and data logistics.


Land:  Grounded by 3,400 greenfield acres surrounding Bremerton National Airport, zoned and prepped for development, Kitsap County has the largest developable industrially zoned site in Puget Sound, plus there are numerous other properties and facilities throughout the County.


Lifestyle:  Kitsap’s livability is the reason so many Boeing and Seattle area workers commute from the “other side” of Puget Sound, why so many military families settle here after being stationed in other parts of the country, and why people who love both the urban attributes of Seattle and the pristine wilderness of the Olympic Peninsula choose to live here.


Workforce, Location, Land, and Lifestyle…we have it all…!!
