What are the EDB services?

The Economic Development Board for Tacoma-Pierce County (the EDB) has a two-prong mission: retention and recruitment of existing primary businesses in Tacoma-Pierce County, Washington. Our staff provide the services, connections, and tools you need to establish or expand your business in Pierce County.

Primary businesses are firms that export goods or services out of the area and import new dollars into the local economy. Primary firms are the fundamental building blocks of job and wealth creation, and we take them very seriously.

Since 1978, the EDB has worked with firms that have invested billions of dollars in the South Puget Sound and employ tens of thousands of workers at high wages. Boeing, IKEA, State Farm, Green Mountain Coffee and hundreds of other firms have discovered what you can discover, too: Tacoma-Pierce County is a great place to invest and grow great companies.

Please contact us today and let us help your firm or your client become a success in Tacoma-Pierce County.
