It's a wrap! Filming concludes for the next round of Grow Here commercials and employer image campaign

Over the past month, AWB and a video recording crew has visited a cutting-edge downtown Seattle biotechnology company, a skin care products company in Olympia with a remarkable international mission, and a 130-year-old family-owned agricultural supply company in southeast Washington.

This tour of Washington's diverse economies and landscapes is part of AWB’s ongoing Grow Here employer image campaign -- specifically, the second round of television commercials and multi-media outreach to tell the stories of how Washington's employers are committed to their customers, employees and communities.

The commercials should begin airing in late February.
