For those who don’t live right on the coast, it can be difficult to realize just how integral the fishing industry is to the U.S. economy. Certainly, a nice seafood dinner or a television program might give some hint, but the truly massive scope of our nation’s maritime workforce and the impact it makes is remarkable. From putting food on the tables of millions of Americans, to propping up tourism in coastal towns, the fishing industry in our country is a central part of the economy’s backbone. According to a report released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the industry supports around 1.83 million jobs. So, this industry does more than just keep our bellies full.
While the crew is the most important part of any fishing vessel, the tools and equipment they use need to be strong and reliable to ensure they are prepared for whatever comes their way. This is especially true when it comes to the galley and food service areas. Having high quality, durable and long-lasting cabinetry and equipment can remove unneeded stressors from any voyage. Cospolich has a team of highly trained engineers, using state of the art 3D modeling to create products that are perfectly suited to your equipment needs.
Their heavy duty walk-in freezers, for example, are built with marine-ready doors, hinges, and latches, and have reinforced floors capable of supporting 2500 pounds per square foot. For tighter spaces, they have reach-in freezers that have a backup magnetic latching to ensure they stay tightly shut, in even the roughest conditions. They also have custom built galley wall cabinets made of stainless steel and built to customers’ exact specifications.
Since 1937, Cospolich, Inc. has been producing world class cabinetry. With a team dedicated not only to creating the highest quality products but also to providing world-class customer service, there’s a reason they’re relied on by companies across the entire industry. They work hard to make sure fisherman have the equipment they need, so that the rest of us can enjoy a freshly caught meal. To learn more, check out our Product Line!
