Companies located in the older sections of the Gig Harbor North Airport Industrial Park have played an important role in the economic development of South Kitsap County and the Port Orchard area. The forerunner to one of Kitsap’s most successful manufacturing companies, Leader International, got its start in a former airplane hangar at the private airfield. Leader now occupies over 100,000 square feet of new industrial space in the Port Orchard Industrial Park, employees more than 50 people and was listed by the Puget Sound Business Journal in the top 100 fastest growing privately held companies in Washington State.

The Gig Harbor North Airport Industrial Park is currently home to Seattle Marine Construction. President Shannon Wagner and his team is the number one service provider for the Pacific Northwest fishing fleet when they need repairs and remodeling in port. Seattle Marine is also a manufacturer of high quality cabinetry and other building components.

Business and industrial parks that provide affordable, well planned infrastructure for such young and fast growing companies provide much needed jobs and incomes for workers living on the Peninsula. Economic development authorities in the county estimate that some 20% of the Kitsap workforce thought to be over 100,000 people must commute out of the county everyday to go to work. Parks like Gig Harbor North Airport Industrial Park provide high quality startup and expansion potential to create jobs and income, save fuel, reduce emissions and help Kitsap parents and adults to spend more time in their community for family, cultural and civic activities. Privately owned, zoned and developed land for industrial use is in short supply in the county.
