Volm Cos., Inc., Antigo, Wis., opened its new 90,000-square-foot facility in Pasco, Wash.

"We came to the Tri-Cities area in 2007 through an acquisition, and since then we’ve been so impressed by how welcoming the area has been," says Daniel Mueller, president and CEO. “It’s inspiring to us as a company and pushes us, and without you, we wouldn’t have been able to have dedicated ourselves to this area like we are today. We also want to thank the city, giving us a lot of help throughout this process and MH Construction because this is a pretty impressive building and they have done a quality job the whole way through. Again, we feel very welcome to this area and we thank everyone for being here today.”  

The new distribution facility, which provides high-quality packaging and equipment solutions to the fresh produce industry, is located less than two miles from the former location. The facility houses warehouse space for inventory, LENO manufacturing equipment, equipment and parts area as well as increased office space for the growing business.
