Bornstein Seafoods to close two US locations as part of optimization efforts Fish & Seafood Food and Beverage Business

Bornstein Seafoods is making moves to consolidate its processing operations, announcing plans to close two processing sites in the US. The family-owned business will be shutting down facilities in Bellingham, Washington, and Newport, Oregon, with the goal of streamlining operations in Oregon.

The plant in Bellingham, Washington, is set to close in June, resulting in the loss of 72 jobs. Similarly, the facility in Newport, Oregon, will shut down in May, affecting 11-50 workers. These closures will lead to the consolidation of operations into Bornstein Seafoods’ sites in Astoria, Oregon.

Colin Bornstein, the president and CEO of Bornstein Seafoods, emphasized that this strategic move is aimed at enhancing operational efficiency and strengthening the company’s competitive edge in the market. He and executive vice president Andrew Bornstein are committed to sustainability, quality, and innovation while meeting the needs of customers in the West Coast seafood industry.

While the decision will not impact Bornstein Seafoods’ processing capabilities, the company is dedicated to supporting its employees during this transition period. Job fair opportunities and resources will be provided to assist workers in finding alternative employment opportunities.

Bornstein Seafoods stated, “This strategic move involves taking excess processing capacity offline, thereby enhancing operational efficiency and strengthening the company’s competitive edge in the market.” The company assures employees that it is focused on supporting them through this transition.

Despite the impact on employees, Bornstein Seafoods remains committed to sustainability, quality, and innovation in the industry. The company reassures stakeholders of its dedication to supporting the workforce and maintaining its processing capabilities through optimization efforts.
