Washington Manufacturing Alert

The Newsletter of the state's most important industry

     Washington’s manufacturing community now has a publication to chronicle the people, companies, technologies, issues and trends of this vital and vibrant industry.

     Washington Manufacturing Alert is a biweekly email newsletter written and edited by veteran Pacific Northwest business journalist Bill Virgin. WMA covers the big-name companies and how they’re influencing the economy of the state. But it specializes in covering small and medium-sized companies and the entrepreneurs behind them, detailing how they’re investing, expanding, innovating and making a difference.

      We cover companies all over the state — from Port Angeles to Pullman, Spokane to Vancouver. We interview newsmakers to bring you their perspectives and insights on where their companies, their industries and the economy are headed.

     Washington Manufacturing Alert tackles big-picture topics and long-term trends that affect the future of manufacturing, from worker training to energy prices, economic-development efforts to legislative and regulatory proposals, technology development to M&A activity.
