Kolstrand announces plans to move to Marysville

One of Ballard’s oldest marine supply manufacturing companies is moving out of the neighborhood.

Kolstrand announced their plan to move on social media over the weekend, saying that effective today (April 8) they’ll be moving to Marysville. Their new address will be 3511 136th St NE, Suite 102.


Kolstrand was bought by Integrity Machining in 2008, and have been expanding their marine and fishing supply operations ever since.

“After 11 years, we have outgrown our Ballard location. Tripling our facility will allow us to better serve our customers,” they shared on Instagram and Facebook. “As a small, family owned business, we know our new location will enable us to grow with our customers and expand our offering of innovative products and services.”

Kolstrand’s historic Ballard location (4733 Ballard Ave NW) sold in 2017 for $9.9 million. No word yet on what will go in its space, but we’ll update when we have new information.

Congrats to them for growing their business into a success. I’m not folowing, though, how they’ve only been there “11 years.” The paint on that old brick building sure looks older than that. Did they mean 111?

I’m guessing the older building was their original location — it’s currently housing Walrus & Carpenter and Staple & Fancy.

Good for them! I’m sure someone will spin this into something bad like: “blah blah Seattle is dying blah junkies blah”

There are those one here, we all know who, that love to whine, complain, and spin a business success into a dystopian tale. I think it’s great that these guys have grown so much they need three times the space!

Trolls gotta troll, whiners gotta whine. Negative interactions are the best part of their lives. It’s sad, and I pity them.

Interesting to see LK Rooming House painted on the side of the building. I wonder how many similar places have disappeared over the years. I suppose aPodments are the new equivalent
