Manufacturing Trivia: Everett, Washington's record-setting manufacturing facility

Posted by LDonia on 09/28/2013

The record-setting facility sees 30,000 employees pass through its football field-sized doors each day. Not impressed? How about this, according to Dvice:

The factory is basically a small, self-contained city. It's got its own freeway (with an airplane overpass), its own railway station, fire department, security force, water treatment plant, bank, medical center, childcare center, five Tully's Coffee stands and 19 cafeterias which pump out 17,000 meals per day.

If you're dying to see its grandeur in person, tours are available, and you'd be in good company. Over 100,000 people visit each year.
