Morey’s Seafood International, Golden Valley, Minn., is relocating its regional distribution business and corporate office into a new state-of-the-art facility in Plymouth, Minn. Morey’s processes and distributes a full line of fresh and frozen seafood products. This expansion will significantly increase the capacity and resources of the company and better position it to serve the ever-changing needs of its customers well into the future.
“As a leader in food safety, we have designed and built the largest, most modern seafood production facility in the Midwest,” says Mike McFee, vice president of operations. “This will allow us to expand our current offerings and do so in an extremely food safe environment. We will continue to exceed customer expectations while maintaining traceability, food safety and the ability to respond to customer needs in an efficient manner.”
Expansion is a significant factor in future plans, according to Scott Wickert, vice president of sales.
“Given our tremendous growth over the last several years, we were in need of a larger facility,” adds Wickert. “Moving into the Plymouth facility will allow us to exponentially expand our current offerings, while also increasing our broad line of custom processed and packaged seafood products.”
Morey’s new 65,000-square-foot best-in-class processing and distribution center boasts enhanced spaces for value-added processing in an optimal food safe environment, as well as significantly increasing processing and storage capabilities. The building also features substantial office and conferencing space and room for future expansion.
