April 25, 2017
AccraFab Inc., Liberty Lake
AccraFab needed room to expand its contract manufacturing and machine-shop operations. It scouted possible locations in Washington and across the state line in Idaho. The decision? Stay put in Spokane County, which is good news for the state and the region. AccraFab already has 180 employees and expects to add more. The company began in 1979 as a sheet-metal fabricator, and since has added engineering, design, prototyping, contract manufacturing, welding, finishing and assembly. Management has also led the way in building the Spokane areas profile as an aerospace hub. AccraFab opened a Kirkland office to snare even more aerospace work.
