Cypress Cold Storage, LLC, a provider of temperature-controlled warehouse space and value-added services for the food sector, recently broke ground on a new 207,285-square-foot cold storage facility in Springdale, Arkansas. The development is expected to bring approximately 50 jobs to the region and will offer customers flexible storage solutions. The project is located at 1440 Angell Drive, Springdale, Arkansas, 72764.  

“Cypress Cold Storage is thrilled to bring this best-in-class facility to the Springdale market and continue expanding our presence in Northwest Arkansas,” said Tony Nichols, CEO of Cypress Cold Storage. “We look forward to providing customers with top-tier solutions and bringing even more career opportunities to the local community.”  

The state-of-the-art facility will include more than 170,000 square feet of temperature-controlled space, including a blast freezer and multiple convertible freezers capable of accommodating a range of temperature requirements from -5 degrees to 28 degrees. The freezer space will have a clear height of 34.5-feet and will include max density racking, allowing for more than 22,000 pallet positions.

Additional facility features include insulated metal panel exterior construction, an 8,450-square-foot office, 21 dock positions, and an ammonia refrigeration system.

ARCO National Construction, a nationwide leader in construction of cold storage facilities, is providing design-build services for the project.

“ARCO is grateful to have the opportunity to partner with Cypress Cold Storage on this project and the expansion of their business,” said ARCO Project Executive and Principal Brian Westre. “The facility is truly state-of-the-art and will bring much-needed temperature-controlled space to the local market. We are proud to provide design-build services for the project and look forward to its successful completion.”

The project is expected to finish next spring.
