Welcome to Centralia's Economic Development Department

Located on Interstate 5, the West Coast’s major trade corridor, Centralia is well-positioned between Portland and Seattle and is a strategic business “hub.”  Centralia is the largest city in Lewis County with just under  17,000 residents.  Its close proximity to Seattle and Portland and their international airports, as well as the deep water Port of Grays Harbor, make it easy to move goods in and out of the community. 

A major contributor to the Centralia economy is the Port of Centralia.  The Port has worked with many companies to locate in Centralia a few include: Rogers Machinery Company, Inc., Dick's Brewing Company, Scot Industries, Michael's Distribution Center, Lineage Logistics,  Lowe’s Distribution Center, Sierra Pacific Industries, and Mega Arms.  The Port of Centralia is currently working on a major retail project called Centralia Station.  It is planned as a multi-use development with retail space, office space, medical facilities, restaurants, tech warehouse space and sports fields.

Companies have chosen to locate in Centralia for many reasons including our quality of life, location on the I-5 corridor, a lower cost of doing business, and workforce development programs.

Whether your company is relocating or you're simply researching new markets, the City of Centralia Economic Development Department can help you realize the benefits of locating your business in Centralia, Washington.
