Harbor Pacific Bottling Inc. has been chosen business of the quarter for the year’s third quarter by Greater Grays Harbor, Inc. The business was recently presented with the honor at their headquarters located at 50 Schouweiler Tracts Road East in Elma.
In operation and a member of GGHI (formerly the Grays Harbor Chamber of Commerce) since 1957, Harbor Pacific is one of the largest employers in Elma.

When asked what he most enjoys about doing business in Grays Harbor, Harbor Pacific president and general manager, Tim Martin, said he appreciates the relationships that can be built with customers and employees in a tight knit community.
