High Liner Foods Incorporated, the leading North American value-added frozen seafood company, opened its newly-constructed U.S. headquarters, a 38,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility located at the Pease International Tradeport in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
"The opening of this new facility is an important milestone for High Liner Foods. The Company has grown significantly over the last several years, particularly in the U.S., and the relocation and design of the new building will help us serve our customers better and attract and retain the top talent required for continued growth into the future," said Keith Decker, President/CEO of High Liner Foods. "With a design that reflects our updated branding, we believe the new building will inspire employees to continue fulfilling our recently formalized mission: to radically simplify selecting, preparing and enjoying seafood at its best."
According to the firm its new headquarters will have 110 full-time employees from administration, sales and marketing, research and development, and culinary were relocated from the previous U.S. headquarters in Danvers, Massachusetts, to the new facility located at 183 International Drive in Portsmouth's thriving Pease International Tradeport. The new facility offers ample space for future expansion and is located only two miles away from the Company's Portsmouth manufacturing facility at 1 Highliner Avenue, bringing management and the culinary team in closer proximity to this key manufacturing site.
