Pasha finishes Grays Harbor upgrades

   Pasha Automotive Services and the Port of Grays Harbor on Friday announced the completion of new infrastructure promoting growth of automotive processing and roll-on/roll-off business in the Washington state port.
   The construction, which started in December, represents two years of planning and engineering. The port’s new $15 million rail facility was complemented by Puget Sound & Pacific’s $3.5 million passing track investment.
   “Combined investments and renovations of terminal processing capabilities of $4.5 million now offer Pasha’s customers over 60 paved acres surrounded by new security systems, a state of the art Belanger custom carwash system, drive-over undercoating application pits, homologation and accessory bays and a new body/mechanical center,” Pasha said. “An additional 10-acre paving/lighting project is underway. Full terminal capacity can be expanded to approximately 150 acres.”
   For Pasha and the port, new business includes an importer on a short-sea service from Mexico. Reconditioned rental cars destined for auction are also booming with several thousand units passing through the port annually.
   “We now have a perfect entrée for Mexico short-sea and landbridge imports, as well as a unique platform to expedite ro/ro exports and imports through the Pacific Northwest,” said John Pasha, senior vice president of Pasha Automotive Services, in a statement.
   The Port of Grays Harbor is located midway between Seattle and Portland, Ore., and less than an hour and a half from open sea.
