Norpac Opens New Frozen Food Cold Storage Facility

NORPAC Foods, Inc., a Salem, Ore.-based producer of fruit and vegetable products, opened the doors to its new 225,000-square-foot frozen food storage and Norpac's new cold storage facilitydistribution facility, which was first announced in March 2013

The new facility is owned and operated by Hillsboro, Ore.-based Henningsen Cold Storage, and was constructed on NORPAC-owned land adjacent to NORPAC’s packaging facility. The site 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,” says George Smith, chief executive officer of 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, Ore., located next to the new cold storage and existing packaging facilities. NORPAC’s Stayton, Ore., processing facility will continue to operate at full capacity.

“We take great pride in helping local farmers and a fellow Oregon business thrive,” says 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.”
