Bellingham, WA -- TrayvaxⓇ, a US-based manufacturer of slim wallets and outdoor accessories based in Bellingham, WA, has been named the 2016 Whatcom County Start-Up Business of the Year by the Whatcom Business Alliance. Trayvax currently employs 32 employees in two buildings, but founder Mark King has a vision of creating 5000 American jobs and growing the company significantly.

“I would like to see at least two Trayvax satellite manufacturing facilities in Bellingham and that our company is operating off of refined, LEAN manufacturing principles,” said King. “Four years ago, there were four of us running a manufacturing line from my apartment and now we’re providing good jobs, retirement benefits and healthcare to dozens of families in Whatcom County.”

Trayvax manufactures a line of slim, metal wallets and outdoor accessories. All products are entirely sourced in the United States and handmade in Bellingham, WA. Trayvax products come backed by a lifetime warranty and are designed to be handed down through generations.

“In an age where products are made to fail, we are making products that are guaranteed to last at least 65 years. But this isn’t the only way that we will survive as a US product company,” said King. “It is about philanthropic endeavors as much as it is about innovating. Satisfaction comes from doing for others and creating change that’s bigger than you.”

The innovation and philanthropy that have come to embody Trayvax are some of the reasons the company was awarded 2016 Whatcom County Start-Up Business of the Year. The Whatcom Business Alliance recognized businesses and business leaders for their efforts to improve the economic and civic vitality of Whatcom County. The annual awards pay tribute to the job creation, risk taking, entrepreneurship, and philanthropy that has enhanced the county’s economic activity and community prosperity.
