Day 7 Highlights

Friday - the final leg of our Manufacturing Week bus tour - brought us along the Columbia River and back up I-5, with stops in Bingen, Vancouver, Woodland, outside of Chehalis, and home to Olympia.

This year's tour showed us so many different facets of our state's manufacturing sector in so many unique and beautiful regions. It's been an honor to visit all of your shop floors, and we can't wait to get out and see more of you next year.

For more information on this year's bus tour, please check out the Olympia Business Watch blog posts from all seven days here, and our daily wrap-up videos here.
