The Phillips Scales business name comes from a man named Brick Phillips who serviced the fishing industry from the early 50’s out of the Seattle Area. He later expanded his region and traveled North with the Fishing fleet out of Seattle. So the business was centered in Seattle and covered all the northwest. Later, into Alaska he would travel with the boats and fleets as they moved north in the spring and would return to Seattle last in the fall after all the fishing was complete. Brick’s major ports were Ketchikan, Wrangle, Sitka, Petersburg, Juneau , Cordova and Valdez.
