About Kitsap County’s Work Force+

Kitsap County’s greatest asset is its workforce. From former navy personnel, to programmers and technology workers, to college and technology-training-center graduates ready to use their talents in manufacturing or skilled labor, our labor pool is stable, energetic and reliable.

It’s easy to see why. Kitsap County offers congestion-free commutes, affordable cost of living and family-friendly communities with stunning Pacific Northwest scenery.

Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) #216+

The Port of Bremerton’s FTZ status gives you an edge over your competitors by saving you money on imported parts for your firm's products. Your firm will pay no tariffs on any imported raw materials used in manufacturing your products when these products are shipped overseas. If your products are sold in the U.S., you pay only when the product is shipped and only on the amount of foreign materials that went into the product, not the wastage.

Kitsap Aerospace & Defense Alliance (KADA)+

KADA is a public-private association that promotes opportunities for business growth in the aerospace industry, both commercial and defense, in Kitsap County. KADA strives to advance Kitsap County as a market leader in the innovation and advanced manufacturing of products, goods and services for the aerospace and defense industries.
