PFS, Orca Bay Seafoods develop new center

Preferred Freezer Services (PFS) announces the development of a new 314,424-square-foot, state-of-the-art warehousing, distribution, and processing center in Federal Way WA.

The company will offer its signature 3PL services from this spacious, temperature-controlled storage and distribution center. In addition, the industrial-zoned site will house a 75,000-sq-ft dedicated, customized processing facility independently operated by Orca Bay Seafoods Inc. The facility, strategically located between Tacoma and Seattle ports, will be the third constructed by PFS in Washington state.

PFS is a LEED-certified designer, developer, and operator of facilities that are maintained to ensure environmental responsibility in the United States and globally. All technologically advanced PFS warehouse facilities are developed and constructed to continually ensure and improve the stewardship of local resources. Orca Bay Seafoods shares these values and over the years has implemented numerous conservation initiatives, including participation in fishery improvement projects and reengineering production processes to reduce packaging waste, energy consumption, and water usage.

Development of the 19-acre site will include relocation and enhancement of the seasonal wetlands discovered on site. The Army Corps of Engineers is in the process of approving this plan of action. The completed campus will feature PFS’s well-groomed and maintained lawns and yards. A 50-foot-wide forested buffer will maintain the leafy character of the industrial-zoned property while screening it from adjacent Weyerhaeuser Way. All construction practices and materials will use cutting-edge, environmentally responsible technologies available within the construction industry.
