StarBox - About Us
Today's StarBox is the result of three generations of leadership from the Weiner family. The company's earliest involvement with seafood processors began in 1955. Morris Weiner supplied much of the packaging used by Star-Kist foods, Pan Pacific Fisheries, Chicken of the Sea, Los Angeles Smoking & Curing Co. and Whitney Fidalgo Seafoods.
Robert Weiner Sr. took the reins in 1974 and for the next 20 years he maintained the business started by his father. By 1995 it was obvious that the nature of seafood processing in the USA had changed forever. The tuna canneries had relocated offshore. LASCCO and Whitney Fidalgo Seafoods had been sold and their facilities were closed. In the face of these adverse conditions Star-Box expanded its capabilities with the acquisition of a warehouse in Signal Hill, California to service fresh fish producers in the San Pedro/Wilmington area. This location was chosen because it also provided an excellent staging area for shipping to overseas customers.
