US Foods Opens New Distribution Center

US Foods, Rosemont, Ill., announced plans to open a distribution center in Seabrook, N.H., to better serve its customers throughout the New England area.

The company currently services this customer base from its facility in Peabody, Mass. While the Peabody facility is approximately 188,000 square feet, the new facility will offer more than 500,000 square feet of space, including additional dry and cold storage and fleet fueling and maintenance areas.

“This new building will allow us to better serve our more than 2,000 customers throughout New England, and operate from a more efficient and modern facility, which will benefit the company, its customers and the nearly 300 employees in the Boston division,” says John Glynn, president, Boston division.

The company partnered with the ESI Group, Hartland, Wis., to execute the renovation of the new facility to ensure it operates as efficiently as possible. Construction is expected to begin at the end of June, and the company aims to move its operations into the new building in the first quarter of 2015.
