Pro*Act has added two members that help fill the foodservice distributor’s footprint in the Pacific Northwest and Southwest.

Grasmick Produce Co. Inc., Boise, Idaho, and Segovias Distributing Inc., El Paso, Texas, have signed onto the Monterey, Calif.-based network.

Rejoining the network, the 54-year-old family-owned Grasmick, which distributes to customers in southwestern Idaho and northeastern Oregon, was a member from 2004-08. Mike Grasmick is vice president.

Segovias, which services restaurant customers from distribution centers in El Paso and Albuquerque, N.M., distributes to customers in western Texas and New Mexico. It was founded in 1998 by president and chief executive officer Juan Manuel “Manny” Segovia.

In a news release, Lloyd Ligier, Pro*Act’s vice president of business development, said Grasmick possesses strong management and perishables expertise while Segovias is a relatively young company that has entrepreneurial spirit with leadership from experienced distribution veterans.
