Washington offers a remittance program of the state sales tax for warehouses and distribution centers constructed over 200,000 SF.
There is plentiful labor pool and workforce training/education. The WorkSource Training program (through Washington State Employment Security Department) over-recruits and trains more candidates than needed which means you can choose from cream of the crop. You don’t pay to train, Washington State covers all costs until hired. There are also customized worker training grants and interest-free loans available.
