The Suquamish Tribe purchased a construction company that is one of the biggest employers in Kitsap County, Washington.
Liberty Bay Excavating employs more than 800 people. It will continue to perform construction work for the tribe as well as other businesses on and off the reservation.
“When the opportunity for purchase arose, we felt it was an excellent way to further diversify our endeavors,” Russell Steele, the chief executive officer of the tribe’s Port Madison Enterprises, told The Kitsap Sun.
