Industry: Packaging

Application: Safety Products

Location: Salem, OR

With a rapidly expanding blueberry farm and packing operation in Salem, Oregon, Steve Erickson CEO of Pan American Berry Growers was researching options to provide additional safety and protection for the facility. Steve said, “Previously, we would fabricate our own security bollards in-house.” Sourcing materials and producing the custom made bollards took staff away from their core duties and used up precious time and expenses.

Enter DACO and Cubic Designs: Steve searched for an alternative solution on DACO’s website at and contacted his local DACO Account Manager, Chris Meserve for additional information. Chris reached out to Cubic Designs Safety Products Sales Manager, Dave Bartels for support. Dave promptly sent out a sample steel safety bollard with detailed product information that Chris reviewed with the client. Steve and his team were so impressed with the high quality and value of the Cubic Designs 43” square safety bollards that he placed an order for over 50 units.

The security bollards were shipped and received in less than 10 days and have been installed throughout the plant. Steve is so pleased with the engineering, safety and value of the Cubic Design’s steel safety bollards that he is planning to purchase additional units as his operation continues to grow and expand.
