In the summer of 2014, over 100 Seattle-based producers and manufacturers—makers of everything from chocolate to propellers—gathered alongside city, state, and allied non-profit orgs, to see how we could work together to grow our businesses, and help make Seattle a fantastic place to work and live.
The mission of Seattle Made is to grow and support a diverse ecosystem of urban manufacturers and producers that expand opportunities for local ownership and meaningful employment, build our region’s long-term resiliency, and celebrate Seattle’s unique cultural identity.
Producing locally—from food and energy to materials and consumer products—means more secure jobs and income for our region and less reliance on an often uncertain global economy. A broader, more vibrant local manufacturing sector will provide a more diverse base of living wage jobs, a more fertile landscape for entrepreneurs, and enormous opportunities to reduce the environmental impact of production and distribution. And—winning sports teams and Mount Rainier aside—few things elicit more local pride than saying, “Look—this was made right here in Seattle!”
