Portland, OR and Nashville, TN -- Harry’s Fresh Foods, a Portland, Oregon-based manufacturer of premium refrigerated and frozen soups, entrées, sides and desserts, announced its intention to expand operations with a production facility in Nashville, Tenn.
“This expansion increases Harry’s capacity on both sides of the country and enables us to offer the same high-quality products with less distance to travel,” said Harry’s Fresh Foods CEO Jamie Colbourne. “Having a 200,000-square-foot facility east of the Rocky Mountains improves efficiency and available delivered shelf life on the company’s fresh, natural and organic products.”
The reduced travel distance for products also has environmental benefits that align well with Harry’s fresh, natural and organic approach.

Portland, OR -- Infomart Data Centers, a national wholesale data center provider, announced that a data center tenant has expanded operations at its Infomart Portland facility, leasing 25,000 square feet of commercial office space. The tenant expansion will add 125 staff to their existing IT processing operation. This addition will bring the total tenant and landlord headcount at the site to approximately 200 full-time personnel.
“This is a validation of our goal to own and manage premier locations for IT operations. Data centers are essential for modern economies. Mature IT operations move substantial amounts of IT equipment and information, both securely and with precision. These processes require more than raised floor, they require people,” says John Sheputis, President of Infomart Data Centers. “That’s why our facilities are designed to have the necessary space and amenities to satisfy the staff requirements of leveraged IT departments and their extended contractor base.”
