Allied's packing facility began as a Saticoy Lemon Plant in 1924. It was said to be one of the most completely equipped houses in California, which lead to many successful years of packing. After the Northridge earthquake in 1994, the Saticoy Lemon Association underwent a million dollar reconstruction and retrofitting, where new steel connections and earthquake safety braces were installed. The Association was commended by the Mayor Fillmore for the good work done, and for maintaining the "historical look that is such a part of Fillmore's charisma and charm."
The facility is approximately 147,000 sq. feet with an administrative office, central plant office, two cold storage facilities - with state of the art cooling systems, avocado & citrus production lines, six ripening chambers, and receiving/dispatching docks. We are excited by the potential and endless possibilities the facility provides given its size and location off highway 126 (connecting to the 5 freeway).
Today Allied has brought new blood to the facility, and we strive to honor its history and carry the longstanding tradition of packing quality fruit.
