“Thank you to the City of Tacoma. They have been extremely helpful and welcoming to us. They want us here.”

We’ve been talking about NewCold for over a year, but holding discussions and negotiations with NewCold for nearly 4 years.
Today’s Grand Opening was grand, indeed. With a crowd of ~400 people in attendance, the Dutch company rolled out a welcome fit for a king… king salmon from Trident Seafoods, that is.
Attendees toured the warehouse and noshed on a light lunch of fish & chips, courtesy of the building’s tenants Trident Seafoods and Simplot. Jonas Swarttouw, business development manager for NewCold, maintained his years-long streak of having stroopwafel at every gathering he attends.

“This is the first location in the US; it has always been my dream. This huge building is tech- and sustainability-driven but customers are the heart of our business.”
