The Pacific Northwest Defense Coalition (PNDC) is the association for Northwest defense and security industry businesses. PNDC strengthens our members’ business growth, our region’s economy, and our nation’s security through training, one-on-one counseling, business-to-business networking, and advocacy.
Securing the Economic Future of Our Region
The opportunity for growth in the Pacific Northwest’s defense and security industries is tremendous. Globally competitive industry clusters are thriving in the Northwest, including manufacturing, software, renewable energy, and biotechnology. But while many firms would greatly benefit from working with government agencies, they lack the resources and experience to enter these lucrative partnerships. PNDC bridges these gaps with educational programs, business-to-business networking, and outreach and advocacy with government decision makers.
PNDC is working to create a stable employment environment throughout the Pacific Northwest. Government contracts provide a reliable revenue source, insulating contractors from the volatile nature of traditional business cycles. By facilitating greater access to government markets, PNDC is building both a stable regional employment base and a powerful job-creation force for the future, even in economic downturns.
Fostering Small Business
Small businesses create new Jobs and new technologies that help local economies grow and prosper. PNDC’s networking opportunities and educational offerings help small business owners and employees produce the best quality products at the lowest possible cost for government customers. These skill sets translate directly into the commercial marketplace, which means an investment in government contracting can be leveraged into additional success in other markets.
PNDC gives small businesses the tools they need to build the reliable revenue stream and balanced customer portfolio afforded by defense and security contracting.
What PNDC Can Do for Your Business
PNDC is committed to providing national security for the country and economic security for its members.
Activities and services are developed to serve members’ business needs in the two most important ways: decrease costs and increase revenues.
