Hy-grade Glass

Hy-grade Glass is a wholesale glass business that provides premium products to glass shops for residential home windows. In 1984, they started as a local business serving Yakima, Tri-Cities, and Wenatchee but quickly started expanding to Portland and Seattle markets and now serve clients in multiple states in the Pacific Northwest. When it came time to support their expansion further, they sought after someone who shared similar values and were referred to Baker Boyer. Our Business Lenders walked them through the loan process and were with them every step of the way so their new building could support their continued growth.

Meier Architecture | Engineering

Meier Architecture & Engineering is a full service firm that has been serving the Tri-Cities community since 1982. Starting as a "one man shop", founder, Terry Meier transitioned the firm to become 100% employee owned in 2007. Building a strong team from the inside out is what has led to their success in building up the Tri-Cities community from office buildings to schools. Their partnership with Baker Boyer helped them through an office expansion, the Paycheck Protection Program, and much more.

Valley Vision has been a part of the Walla Walla community since 1947. Being a part of this tight-night community and providing excellent eye care is what drives them. Valley Vision partnered with Baker Boyer over 50 years ago and never looked back. Business Advisors were there through every expansion and the purchase of new equipment and, most recently, assisted in the business transfer of ownership.

From the small businesses keeping their equipment safe during an expansion to the individual who has found their forever home, Travis helps them all. Baker Boyer Business Advisors guided Finley Self Self-Storage from the beginning and most recently through an expansion so that they could grow with Tri-Cities community.
