Our first plant in Coos Bay had a fish processing history – but it really wasn’t set up for our operation. We made it work but looked forward to the day when we could break ground on a new plant. That reality came true in the Spring of 2015 when we prepared to build our new plant in Charleston. View images at our During Construction page.
It was quite a project as we designed and built the building ourselves. Steve did most of the internal systems designs, that not only saved us money, but they work fantastic. As we reached the difficult parts of the construction, we called on Jimmy to show up and help us get the task at hand done.
It really was a team effort as we built the new plant while continuing to produce at the existing plant. It did take two about two years to complete, and we found ourselves moving in during the summer of 2017.
With lots of elbow room in the beginning, the plant is starting to fill up as we add more machines to produce a range of seafood items and meals. It’s exciting (and challenging!) to produce new products – not for us but other small quality emerging brands as well.
