Happy New Year to you and yours! 2017 is sure to bring increased momentum to our local job market, housing market and the entire tax base of revenues coming into the State coffers. The numbers that reflect this growth is amazing and tell a story of what’s to come for the Ridgefield WA area, including all of Clark County, Cowlitz County, Lewis County and Thurston County- here are the numbers:
Ridgefield WA, and mile post 16- one of my busiest locations for Emergency Road Service of Big Rig Trucks and Trailers- is leading the way in this local growth explosion. This trend is going all along I-5 from the Vancouver WA border with Oregon to Tumwater WA. Ridgefield WA growth rate is second only to Bothell WA- a city in the Seattle Metro- which grew 20% due to annexation. Ridgefield’s growth is due to the efforts of local planners to attract both family-wage jobs and single-family homes, according to city officials. Due to the proximity to the Portland-Vancouver metro area through the I-5 corridor, the city of Ridgefield is fast becoming one of the State of Washington’s main destinations for home builders and families from all over the U.S. A rebound in home-building is occurring where tracts of land were platted and prepared for building prior to the housing market’s collapse of 2008.
Along with the explosive growth in housing and residential population, there is another advantageous growth trend occurring- new LOCAL jobs. The I-5 corridor is a magnet for big, medium and small businesses due to its accessibility to the large population centers in Vancouver-Portland Metro, Olympia State Capitol and Seattle Metro area. We are witnessing large manufactures moving into the area and setting up distribution centers, satellite offices and store fronts, creating a huge distribution hub for heavy, medium and light manufacturing. Recently, Agave Denim, a high end clothing manufacturer has located its headquarters in Ridgefield WA. Northwest Natural Products has also set up operations in the Ridgefield WA area to bottle and ship its vast line up of vitamins. This is just the tip of the iceberg- MANY other businesses have seen the numbers of population growth and ease of transportation in this part of the I-5 corridor and are setting up shop- such as metal fabricator Alliance Industrial Group of Vancouver WA who recently purchased 5 acres near the I-5 exit leading into Ridgefield WA.
With this much growth occurring, the amount of highway traffic along the Ridgefield WA area of I-5 is exploding as well. There is a tremendous demand for truck driving jobs, trucking jobs, truck driver jobs, trucking companies, truckload services, truckload carrier, dry van trucking, refrigerated trucking, heavy haul trucking, trucking careers, transportation careers, logistics careers and freight brokerage careers to accommodate the demand to move and distribute products all up and down the I-5 corridor and throughout the entire North American continent. Along with this much traffic of Big Rig Truckers there also comes a lot of mechanical failures, break downs and the need for truck repair shop names Ridgefield WA, emergency road service Ridgefield WA, emergency roadside assistance Ridgefield WA, emergency towing Ridgefield WA, emergency repair Ridgefield WA, mobile mechanics Ridgefield WA, 24-hour roadside assistance Ridgefield WA, roadside assistance Ridgefield WA and Hydraulic Repair Service Ridgefield WA.
