Kent is known for quite a number of things. From dairy farming to lettuce farming to aerospace, Kent has done it all and is still doing so much more. For an area that was once bound to succumb to severe flooding, Kent has managed to pull itself out of the trenches and build a new life, one that has world-players in the business community fighting for a piece. Boeing and Amazon are such names. Boeing officially set up its shop in the year 1964 and has been going steady ever since. It is currently the biggest employer with over 5,300 workers on its payroll. The only other company that comes close is its Boeing Australia division which crosses a little over the 4,000 mark. Together, they are a dominant force. The success of Boeing can partially be attributed to the booming steel industry which strongly rivals it when it comes to dominance. There are about four major steel companies that supply raw materials and finished products to all parts of the Seattle-Tacoma metropolitan area. If you are a big fan of sports, Kent suits you perfectly. It has been hailed as the go-to sports-town in the state of Washington. The must-have jerseys in your closet will be those of the Seattle Seahawks, Seattle Sounders, Seattle Mariners and the Seattle SuperSonics. When it comes to local action, the ShoWare Center will supply you with plenty of ice hockey and indoor soccer actions.
