Crunch Pak completes expansion in Cashmere, Wash.

Crunch Pak has completed a major expansion at its Cashmere, Wash., plant.

The project expanded the company’s processing and loading facility space by 39,000 square feet, said company President and CEO John Graden.  Half of the additional space will be used for finished product storage and shipping, with the rest for processing.

The new space will enable the company to handle approximately 1 million pounds of raw product per week. Also part of the expansion was the addition of six loading docks that make it possible for Crunch Pak to facilitate all levels of orders, large and small.

The company employs 750 people at the plant and will increase that number to 800 later this fall.
