Bellevue, Wash.-based Pacificpro Inc. completed a transaction Aug. 1 to acquire the former Washington Harvest cold-storage and packing facility in Wapato, Wash., from Chuck and Annette Hankins, said Marcus Hartmann, Pacificpro’s vice president of operations.
The new entity, Glacier Peak Cold Storage and Packing, will continue to operate in the same capacity as it has for nearly 30 years, with cross-docking, cold storage, packing, repacking, Hartmann said.
Glacier Peak also runs a full-time consolidation service across the Yakima Valley with multiple trucks running full-time five days a week to consolidate multi-pick loads to a single location, Hartmann said.
New staff includes Herman Lazo, general manager; Teresa Perrotti, accounting and support; and Marlen Romero, production. Additional staff includes forklift operators, production and packing staff, flatbed and local haul consolidation truck drivers, Hartmann said.
