(Port Angeles) – There’s a new business in town, and it promises to bring a lot of new jobs and revenue to our local economy.
Bill Lee, President and CEO of Airborne Environmental Control Systems and a native of Joyce, has signed a lease with the Port of Port Angeles, and intends to start building the first of two 25,000 square foot production facilities in the next year.
The company expects to hire about 100 new employees over the next 5 years. Many of those new jobs would be technical jobs such as computer numerical control and 3-D printing and drafting, but the company is talking to Peninsula College about creating a workforce program in order to train local people to fill those positions.
When asked about the future prospects for growing their business, Bill Lee had this to say at Wednesday’s Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce presentation:
The company says they’ve signed two hundred million dollars in contracts, and expects to be a billion company by around 2025.
