Preferred Freezer Services (PFS) will develop a new 314,424 ft2 warehousing, distribution and processing center in Federal Way, Wash. PFS will offer its 3PL services from the spacious, temperature-controlled storage and distribution center. In addition, the industrial-zoned site will house a 75,000 ft2 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 such facilities.

“Preferred Freezer Services is excited to partner with Orca Bay Seafoods Inc. on this new project and set the standard for the entire business park. Our companies share similar cultures and strive to exceed expectations with any and all interactions between our employees, vendors, valued customers and the communities in which we operate our businesses. We are confident that this new facility will allow Orca Bay and all customers PFS serves today the opportunity to grow their business within this region,” said Dan DiDonato, executive vice president of Preferred Freezer Services.

Ryan Mackey, president and CEO of Orca Bay Seafoods Inc., added that “Orca Bay has done business in the Seattle-Tacoma area for over 30 years. The move to Federal Way and partnership with Preferred Freezer Services provides us an ideal opportunity to improve our operational efficiency and flexibility by consolidating our Bellevue and Renton locations. The new space also affords us the ability to continue our commitment to exceeding our customer’s expectations by offering quality frozen seafood produced with the highest levels of food safety and environmental sustainability.”
