Bay Grove Capital LLC, a San Francisco-based principal investment firm, launched Lineage Logistics, a new name for the consolidated warehousing and logistics company, combining each of the businesses acquired by Bay Grove-Richmond Cold Storage, Terminal Freezers, Flint River Services, CityIce and Seafreeze-as well as other individual locations.

Lineage Logistics was forged through the combination of entrepreneurial companies with long histories, strong reputations and dedicated employees. The Lineage name combines unique heritage and expertise with the connectedness of cold chain logistics. It conveys forward-looking momentum as well as the core values of personal integrity and a commitment to enduring partnerships.

“The launch of Lineage joins great companies under a single banner and establishes an even more dynamic company for the future,” says Kevin Marchetti, managing director for Bay Grove. “We are at the beginning of the Lineage story-we will continue to grow and evolve.”

Lineage Logistics offers a wide footprint and a broad range of sophisticated, customized and dependable cold chain solutions for customers with complex storage and service requirements. Featuring about 130 million cubic feet, the Lineage Logistics facililty operates the fifth largest facility network, according to data received from the International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses (IARW).

With more than 40 facilities across eight states, Lineage Logistics provides temperature-controlled solutions in strategic locations for distribution, food harvest/production and import/export customers. It has expertise in diverse commodities, and its port-centric warehouses in Savannah, Ga.; Seattle; and Norfolk, Va., provide customers with access to global markets.

“Lineage is built on what it means to be family-owned,” says Tim Dayton, West Coast president. “We are devoted, have pride of ownership and have a singular focus on doing the best for our customers.”

Additional capabilities include on-site food processing support and dedicated warehouse management, transportation and logistics consulting services.

“Our entire team is excited to unite as Lineage,” says Mike McClendon, East Coast president. “We look forward to further strengthening our culture of success and core values regardless of scale or reach.”
