North American Cold Storage Builds Tallest Cold Storage Facility in Indiana

North American Cold Storage, Fort Wayne, Ind., broke ground on a 96,000-square-foot facility in Woodburn, Ind., which is said to be the tallest cold storage site in the North American Cold Storage plantarea.

Located at 23202 Roemer Drive, this facility will allow for more efficiencies in managing large numbers of SKUs with a more accurate and timely deployment. The company will invest $28.1 million into the new facility over the next several years and add a total of 75 new jobs. The company is expected to have the first of two phases completed by October 2014.

“We are very pleased with the attention we’ve received from the state of Indiana and the city of Woodburn during our buying process,” says Scott Parker, partner. “With the new Highway 24, it’s not only the perfect location for exposure, but it also allows us the possibilities to expand even more.”

The new facility will be equipped with a state?of?the?art warehouse management system, radio frequency barcode scanning, electron data interchange, energy management, including variable frequency drives and high bay LED lighting.
