Update: Plum Plex Productions prepares for continued growth in city of SeaTac
Local light manufacturing company looks ahead to positive future of the community
Plum Plex Productions LLC, a local light manufacturer, recently established their business and operations in the city of SeaTac and have announced plans for future growth.
Currently located on South 192nd Street, Plum Plex designs and produces both custom and stock retail displays office, furniture, museum cases and medical clinic products for some of the region’s most respected brands and companies.
“The location of Plum Plex in SeaTac is very favorable for growth in our light manufacturing sector and economy,” said Jeff Robinson, economic development manager for the city. “Their products are a staple of businesses throughout the region, and across the country. We were delighted with their decision to headquarter their business here, and we look forward to what’s to come.”
The company, which was established in SeaTac last September, employs a workforce of six industry experts mostly from the surrounding Highline area. Not only do they design and fabricate all of their work, but do so using green manufacturing techniques. The materials they work with primarily consist of acrylics, wood and metals.
Alan Montgomery, president of sales and marketing with Plum Plex, stated that, “We chose SeaTac because it is a natural fit for our business and operations. The space is affordable, the location between Seattle and Tacoma is ideal, and the easy access to freeways and the airport will make product transportation fast and efficient.”
Plum Plex currently operates in a leased space of 7,400 square feet.
Montgomery says once business and orders grow enough, they plan to employ a few additional employees and expand to another adjacent facility, feasibly in the near future.
