ANTIGO, WI - Packaging and equipment solutions provider, Volm Companies, Inc., marked a step in sizeable growth last week–by about 90,000-square-feet.

The company dug its shovels into Washington soil as it broke ground on a brand new, 90,000-square-foot distribution center.

"The main facility now is too small, forcing us to house our inventory in other facilities and use modular buildings onsite to accommodate our current staff," Daniel Mueller, President and CEO of the company, said in a press release. "Our goal is to strive to be the most valued partner to our customers, and this new facility will help us more efficiently meet their daily service needs from a centralized location, as well as more completely meet our customer’s increasing standards for food safety."

A groundbreaking ceremony celebrating the event was held at the site of the property last Wednesday, August 10th. Located in Pasco, Washington, this new facility will be just under two miles away from the existing location.

"At this new facility, we will continue to have manufacturing for our Leno onion bags and will have a more usable equipment staging and spare parts area as well as increased office space," Mueller said. "The business served from our Pasco location has grown, bringing value to our family of companies. I’m very excited to be able to have a facility that we can all be proud of."

The company reported that construction is expected to be finished some time in the spring of next year, 2017.
