NORPAC Foods, Inc., a leading producer of fruit and vegetable products, and Henningsen Cold Storage Co., yesterday celebrated their new 225,000-square-foot frozen food storage and distribution facility with an open house for its farmer-owners, employees, partners and civic officials.
The new facility is owned and operated by Hillsboro, Ore.-based Henningsen Cold Storage, one of the largest, family owned, frozen and refrigerated warehousing companies in the United States, and was constructed on NORPAC-owned land adjacent to NORPAC’s packaging facility. The facility was designed to support the company’s continued growth and will immediately become NORPAC’s primary distribution point for the company’s frozen finished goods. The new facility will provide considerable energy and cost savings through more efficient transportation and storage practices.
“The project has been a true partnership from the ground up,” said George Smith, CEO, NORPAC. “We’re proud to work with civic leaders and Henningsen, another steadfast Oregon-based company, to make this project a reality. This investment is symbolic of our pride in local agriculture and our long term commitment to Salem.”
In addition to the construction of the cold storage facility, NORPAC consolidated 120 employees from two satellite offices to a new corporate headquarters building in Salem, located next to the new cold storage and existing packaging facilities. NORPAC’s Stayton processing facility will continue to operate at full capacity.
“We take great pride in helping local farmers and a fellow Oregon business thrive,” said Mike Henningsen, Chairman and President, Henningsen Cold Storage Co. “It’s exciting to know that, in partnership with NORPAC, we’ll preserve the fresh flavors from the fields for people to enjoy year-round.”
