Contanda is in the permitting process to expand their bulk liquid storage facilities at the Port of Grays Harbor.
According to a third-party economic analysis conducted by ECONorthwest, the Contanda project will create 73 new full time jobs – paying an average of $84,000 per year – as well as over 480 jobs overall during the yearlong construction. This project will generate $37.3 million in labor earnings for construction and more than $5.1 million per year in annual operations. Once complete, the new terminal will contribute more than $24 million to the economy each year and millions in state and local tax revenue.
Labor has a rich tradition in Washington State, and especially in Grays Harbor County. Contanda is committed to upholding that tradition by hiring locally and using local products and services whenever possible.
The Port is central to the economy of Grays Harbor County. It is the state’s only deep-water port located on the Pacific Ocean. Contanda’s more than $61 million terminal expansion will be a direct investment in the Port during construction. And once completed, this investment will continue to enhance the Port’s stature as an attractive partner to other businesses and industry. The Port will be well-positioned for future new trade opportunities and economic growth.
