Business Development

Work Force Development Center is a 501 c (3) nonprofit organization providing vocational opportunities to at-risk high school juniors and seniors. We are always seeking additional business partners to enhance training possibilities for our students. Through those partnerships our students are provided an opportunity to learn skills in a high-quality manufacturing environment. Work Force Development Center is registered ISO 9001/2008, AS9100C as well as D6-82479 Appendix A source delegated supplier.

Our goal is to expand the business base and develop new contracts enabling Work Force Development Center to grow. This growth will allow Work Force Development Center to help more students. The partnerships we form are beneficial to the future of both our students and our community.

To that end, in September 2013, WFDC opened a second location in Mukilteo which now houses two Haas 4 axis Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machines.  On Veteran's Day, we milled our first aerospace part from a block of solid aluminum.  We are now capable of producing high reliability precision components for aerospace and commercial applications to customers' exact specifications.  Machinists are in high demand and our student trainees will now be adding this new skill to their resume.  This training will enhance our students skill base and employability.

Currently Work Force Development Center works with 20 major aerospace, automotive and marine companies at local and international levels.
