Focus On: Forest Grove


In 1973, Henningsen Cold Storage Co. began operations in a leased cold storage facility located in Forest Grove, Oregon.  Quickly understanding the growing demand, Henningsen built a new facility in 1975 and acquired a dry warehouse across the street.  This sealed our commitment to serve the multi-temperature warehousing and distribution needs of the Willamette and Tualatin Valley’s fruit and vegetable industry.  After being on the map for only a few short years, the Henningsen Forest Grove facility began receiving inquiries to offer import/export services, as well as regional consolidation. Our reach now extends past the local area and into major domestic and international markets.

Our Forest Grove facility operates in temperatures ranging from -20°F to ambient, allowing us to adapt to our customers evolving specifications.  With 12 truck receiving doors and seven BNSF-serviced rail car spots, Henningsen Forest Grove can efficiently handle your distribution requirements.  Additionally, this location offers 25 acres of prime, industrial property for development or allied industry use.  We have been pleased with the business-friendly community of Forest Grove.  Not only are they very personable, the City offers locally managed utilities, resulting in some of the area’s most efficient operating costs.

In January 2016, our Forest Grove warehouse graduated from the Oregon OSHA SHARP (Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program) program.  This recognition required us to create new, effective ways to promote and maintain health and safety initiatives for our associates, as well as a DART (Days Away, Restricted, or Transferred) rate below the national average.  The Forest Grove facility is Henningsen’s third Oregon warehouse to receive this award.  Although challenging, this program encouraged us to always look for better ways to operate while maintaining a fun and safe workplace for our associates.

Whether your needs consist of local warehouse support for your production, import/export services, or forward distribution to major markets, Henningsen Cold Storage is ready to serve you in Forest Grove.

You’re With Henningsen… Relax, It’s Handled!
