For nearly six decades, Red Dot has been a proud member of the business and manufacturing community in Tukwila, WA; the area has served as a strong and supportive incubator for our headquarters as our operations have expanded nationally and internationally across the Southeast U.S., the United Kingdom, and China.
Recently, we’ve made the decision to move Red Dot’s headquarters about 25 miles south to Puyallup, WA – benefiting our customers, team members and surrounding community.
First, our new location and facility will enable us to streamline our manufacturing and distribution processes, better delivering for the heavy-duty equipment manufacturers and aftermarket customers we serve. This move will position us just minutes away from the Port of Tacoma, allowing us to cut down on material transit times. Plus, because the new facility will house all of our manufacturing and distribution activities in a single building, we are re-envisioning the layout of our manufacturing and supply chain processes, supporting LEAN principles and optimizing material flow through the facility.
Shifting our headquarters just 40 minutes south also will allow us to offer our team members a wonderful community to work in and an affordable place to live. Red Dot is an employee-owned ESOP corporation; our team members are essential to our success, and every individual is a valued member of our professional family. As we prepare for our new Puyallup operations to open in early 2023, we’re inviting all current team members to join us. For some individuals, the move will make their existing commute even easier.
We are also actively recruiting new team members to join the Red Dot family. In addition to the opportunity to build equity in our company and develop lifetime careers in manufacturing, supply chain, engineering and other operational roles. We offer excellent benefits that exceed industry standards. To learn more about our open positions and the perks of working at Red Dot, visit Red Dot Careers.
Finally, the relocation will enable us to become part of the fabric of the Puyallup area. We look forward to joining this vibrant community as a strong and progressive employer, and leading manufacturer of premium mobile HVAC systems worldwide.
