Volm Companies, an industry leader in providing the highest-quality packaging and equipment solutions to the fresh produce industry, has opened its new 90,000-square-foot facility in Pasco, Wash. A ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house were held July 25 at the property site.

“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,” said Daniel Mueller, Volm’s president and CEO. He thanked first and foremost the region’s customers, noting the impressive way in which they have taken on innovation in the area. “It’s inspiring to us as a company and pushes us. 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 [in] this area, and we thank everyone for being here.”

Officiating the ceremony with Mueller were Volm’s chairman of the board Alan Mueller and Pasco mayor Matt Watkins, who welcomed Volm to the business community. The open house event was attended by Volm stakeholders and management, customers, city officials, building and project contractors, staff visiting from other Volm locations and other guests who played a role in the project.

“It’s important that our customers know our level of commitment to providing them with the level of service they deserve,” said Volm vice president of sales and marketing Matt Alexander. “For our customers to be here today celebrating this event with us was important to all of us at Volm. We are committed to their success, and through this investment are able to show them that Volm is here to stay.”

The new distribution facility is located at 5702 Industrial Way in Pasco, less than two miles from Volm’s 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.
