Sitka Salmon Shares Expands Galesburg Footprint

As a result of continuous company growth, Sitka Salmon Shares has expanded its footprint

in Galesburg, Illinois. The company recently executed a lease for a distribution facility at

1861 S. Henderson St. in Southwest Galesburg. The facility adds more space in Galesburg

for packaging and distribution of the company’s wild-caught Alaska seafood.

“We are excited to be able to expand in Galesburg which has been the core of our business

since we started over a decade ago. This new facility adds capacity to our existing footprint

and will help the company serve our customers around the Midwest and continental US,”

Dara Chapman, Chief Operating Officer of Sitka Salmon Shares.

The expansion comes as part of the company’s overall expansion in Galesburg over the last

year, which includes 50 new full-time and seasonal positions this year. Operations in the

new facility will begin in a limited capacity in June. The company is currently hiring for the

position of Customer Service Associate and those interested in applying can find job

postings at https://jobs.lever.co/sitkasalmonshares.

“Sitka Salmon is an amazing success story for our community. We are delighted to see the

company expand and to continue to create jobs in our region,” Ken Springer, President of

the Knox County Area Partnership for Economic Development.

Sitka Salmon Shares delivers traceable, wild-caught Alaska seafood from small-scale
