Message from the CEO

John Sternlicht

Welcome to virtual Skagit County, Washington!  We’re glad you’re visiting our website.  The next step is to come see us in person and find out why this area is a prime destination for business success, access to the 6.5 million people living within 100 miles, outdoor recreation and tourism, and myriad other reasons.  Skagit County offers fertile ground not only for 80 different crops (we're world leaders in beet, cabbage, and spinach seed production, among others), but also for entrepreneurs, advanced manufacturers, ship builders, food processors, clean tech, composites, aviation and aeronautics.  Our value-added agriculture sector produces some of the best beers and breads; from grain to glass and farm to fork, Skagit means quality.  We are technology (Skagit rhymes with gadget!) and trade, tulips and tourism.  From the Cascade Mountains to the North Puget Sound, Skagit County offers a beautiful place, comfortable lifestyle, and advantageous business locations.

We at EDASC stand ready to assist your business, whether you are not yet in Skagit County, or already here, to prosper and grow.  Please feel free to contact any of us regarding your needs and plans.  We look forward to seeing you here!

With warm regards,

John Sternlicht, Chief Executive Officer, Economic Development Alliance of Skagit County
