When we say that our mission as a company is to create 5000 American jobs, we are not just talking about a number. We are talking about a magnitude of positive impact we want to have on our community, our country, and the world. 5000 jobs means 5000 families are able to better pursue their happiness. March 29th is National Mom and Pop Business Owners’ Day. Manufacturing may not be the first industry that comes to mind when you talk about small businesses, but the impact of every job we create makes ripples throughout the community. When they leave work, our employees become customers to other businesses, supporting other families and spreading our success well beyond our own company.
Our products are proudly made in the USA. We are located in Bellingham, WA. This is where the impact of the jobs we create begins, so today we’re going to highlight our hometown. It’s a great place to work, a great place to live, and a great place to visit. Our ripple of impact starts here, and it spreads throughout our country and into the world.
Bellingham is roughly 90 miles north of Seattle. Its nickname is “The City of Subdued Excitement.” For a city of roughly 90,000 people, it has a lot to offer without losing its small-town feel. The city is known for its historic architecture, picturesque interurban trails, and craft breweries. It is also the home of Western Washington University and a variety of small businesses, museums, and performing arts venues.
If you need to escape all the “subdued excitement” the surrounding area is rich with outdoor destinations. Some are easy to get to while others offer a challenge. You may have heard of Mount Baker, a breathtaking 10,781 foot snow capped mountain that attracts skiers and snowboarders from far and wide. The surrounding trails, rivers, and lakes offer even more to explore.
Think of all the stories being earned out there, not just in our community but in others like it around the country. Every story starts with an opportunity, and for many that opportunity takes the form of a job. It is a foundation from which you can earn your story. When you order a Trayvax product, you are not just supporting a wallet company, you are supporting the people that this company is made of. And in return, we promise to earn that support with the quality we design and build into everything we make for you.
We’re going to close with a video of some of our employees sharing their experience living in our community and working at our company. When you buy a Trayvax product, you become a part of this family. We are so grateful to have you with us on our mission to create 5000 American jobs. Thank you so much for your support. Together we can make this happen.
