World Trade Center Tacoma has presented its premiere Globe Award for 2016 to Orion Industries of Auburn.

This social enterprise with a mission of helping those with barriers to employment, such as learning disabilities, low income, and mental health barriers uses operations in its aerospace manufacturing division, a certified AS9100 tier one supplier delivering millions of parts to Top Tier OEMs. 

Orion has experienced such growth over the past year that it added a second location in Mukilteo. It also is expanding its international customer base by partnering with WTCT to reach overseas markets.

“World Trade Center Tacoma helps us promote our products globally and provide services that enable us to enter new markets,” said Jeff Black, Orion CFO. “Trade and investment means opportunity for job growth, for wage growth, and for growth of businesses like Orion.”
