Massachusetts-based Pierce Aluminum Company Inc. plans to consolidate its Kent and South Park operations at its new Federal Way location early next year.
The company — a leading distributor of aluminum and a manufacturer of finished aluminum products — will bring 10 of their employees to Federal Way, with plans to hire approximately four more people by the end of 2020.
“We are an aluminum distributor, so Federal Way’s centralized location and access to freeways was a key,” said Randy Pierce, branch manager of Pierce Aluminum-Seattle, adding that the Kent and South Park facilities cover the states of Washington and Oregon. “Having both operations under one roof located with easy access to I-5 will enhance our service to our customers.”
The company purchased a building located at 34100 9th Ave. S. in Federal Way. Pierce said the company is beginning the permitting process with the city on the capital improvements that they will be making to the building. They expect the Federal Way facility to be operational in the first half of 2020.
