He continued, “I would also like to thank Trevor Newhouse and his team for spearheading the project and taking our new distribution center from concept to reality. This modern facility features state-of-the-art information and technology systems connectivity, LED lighting, energy-efficient refrigeration, and so much more. Also, the design fits into our ongoing company-wide sustainability efforts to help keep our carbon footprint at a minimum.”
As a part of West Pak’s network of facilities, the Logan Township location was built to service wholesale, retail, and foodservice customers in the Northeast and Midsouth regions of the United States. This full-service avocado distribution center provides convenience to customers by offering ripening, bagging, repacking, and cold storage.
The strategic placement of the company’s new facility adds value to West Pak’s operations and enhances the company’s national distribution of avocados.
