Crews moved dirt under sunny, cooperative skies this week, setting the foundation for a new 38,000-square-foot business facility at 19450 68th Ave. S.
Northern California-based Auto-Chlor System, which provides dishwashing equipment, cleaning solutions and service on the equipment for the restaurant and hospitality industries, plans to open an office and warehouse late this year at the northeast corner of South 196th Street and 68th Avenue South, aka West Valley Highway.
The company services more than 75,000 customers in 40 states. It began as a commercial dishwashing company and now has about 120 service locations, including Washington sites in Seattle, Fife and Everett.
The Auto-Chlor System, which predominantly serves restaurants, will occupy a portion of the new facility. Crews demolished and removed the old 15,000-square-foot building that once served WinEstimator, Inc., in preparation for new construction.
