Spotlight with Laurie Hardie

Spotlighting Orion Industries

Orion is a non-profit 501(c)(3). They define themselves as a social enterprise. Orion combines their successful aerospace manufacturing business with the social impact objectives of a traditional non-profit. The two sides of the organization are inseparable.

They operate out of two locations – Auburn and Mukilteo where they offer an array of services. They know that jobs provide more than just a paycheck, and that people with employment barriers just want what we all want – to be self-sufficient contributors to society.
