Family Ties

| FROM THE PRINT EDITION |
 
 

Washington state’s long-lived family enterprises too often
get overlooked in favor of “fast” companies, here and gone in the space of a
market cycle. That’s why Seattle Business
magazine is inaugurating the Washington Family Business Awards: A business that
can be passed down from generation to generation, keeping its core values
intact, deserves to be celebrated. As does the family that so often ties its
fortunes to its business. These are companies with deep roots and strong ties
to their communities.

The winners and runners-up:
