Teeter moves flagship HQ to Bonney Lake

You may have heard of Teeter, a back-pain relief company that has been selling its products nationwide for decades. But you may not know that Teeter was founded on Lake Tapps, and last week, broke ground on moving its corporate headquarters from Puyallup to Bonney Lake.

You may have heard of Teeter, a back-pain relief company that has been selling its products nationwide for decades.

But you may not know that Teeter was founded on Lake Tapps, and last week, broke ground on moving its corporate headquarters from Puyallup to Bonney Lake.

On Aug. 11, co-owners Rylie Teeter-Leier and Chris Leier held an official groundbreaking ceremony alongside founders Rodger and Jennifer Teeter and Bonney Lake Mayor Neil Johnson.

This marks a historical moment for Bonney Lake, as it’s the first commercial construction site to start in East Town.

“I believe Teeter could be the catalyst to get other manufacturers or service type businesses to take another look at East Town. It has been at least ten years that the city has been actively trying to find ways to help East Town move forward, including building a sewer lift station not too long ago,” Johnson said in an interview after the ceremony. “In the near future, I am hoping that we can surplus some city property and find a way to extend sewer which will be the key to East Town’s future.”

Chris Leier said in a press release that the move will not only support company growth, but benefit the Bonney Lake community.

“By building in a more convenient location in the South Sound, we can minimize the commute for our employees, affording more time for enjoying life and their families,” he said. “Plus, we love Bonney Lake — in fact, a good number of our employees live there already — and we’re excited to contribute in a positive way to the community by building an aesthetically-pleasing property that respects and enhances its surroundings.”

Teeter was founded in 1981 and has been the single longest-selling product on the Home Shopping Network for 20 years, Rodger Teeter said at the ceremony.
