Investment in future

Published April 14, 2011 / by Steve Berentson

Port of Anacortes staff members recently toured sulfur processing facilities near the intersection of Highway 20 and Farm to Market Road. Sulex, a Canadian-based company, is almost done building a storage facility that will allow increased production. Sulex, which converts a refinery byproduct to “prilled” sulfur signed an agreement to ship finished product across docks at the Port of Anacortes. It is estimated the Port could bring in first-year revenue of $1 million from the contract.

About Steve Berentson

A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
