Volm Companies Inc. expects to complete a 98,000-square-foot warehouse this month at 5702 Industrial Way.
It’ll be located inside the Pasco Processing Center.
MH Construction of Kennewick is the general contractor.
The company makes mesh bags and other packaging as well as packaging machinery and parts for growers, primarily in the potato and onion industries. The new facility will serve as the Northwest distributing and sales center.
Volm officials said the new building will increase its presence in the Tri-City to provide more service and products to the food processing industries.
The new $6 million warehouse features 60,000 square feet of warehouse space, 30,000 square feet of available lease space and 8,000 square feet of office space.
The Port of Pasco sold the 7.5-acre lot to Volm for about $623,000.
Although headquartered in Wisconsin, Volm is not new to the area.
The new building will be less than two miles from the company’s existing location at 3405 N. Commercial Ave. in Pasco.
Wave Design Group of Kennewick is the architect.
