The company installed a new packing line in its Tieton, Wash., facility last fall, doubling its capacity to pack apples.

Queen said that facility had been running two shifts seven days a week but reduced that to one shifts five or six days a week.

Domex also upgraded and modified its building and line in Selah, Wash., doubling capacity.

“We’re always planting new acreage,” Queen said. “We plant or replant 1,000 acres a year. It’s efficient, high-density plantings. All that capacity will be needed to meet supply.”
