Produce and dairy supplier The Coastal Cos., Savage, Md., announced plans to move into a new 240,000-square-foot facility in the first quarter of 2016. The new Coastal Cos. renderingbuild-to-suit facility will be located on 33 acres in Laurel, Md., and will incorporate state-of-the-art design to double existing capacity. Groundbreaking will occur later this summer. 

The new headquarters is being constructed just three miles from the company's current operation to accommodate staff and strengthen the company’s position in its core market.

"We believe the outlook for our products and services are strong, and we believe there is significant opportunity in our current footprint," says John Corso, president and CEO. 

Strategically located between Baltimore and Washington, The Coastal Cos. delivers daily to six states and the District of Columbia and serves major retailers along the entire East Coast.

"We have grown because we take care of our customers, we take care of our people and we invest in our business," Corso adds. "The proximity of our new facility will enable us to retain our people, the lifeblood of our organization and the facility's scale will give us a set of capabilities unparalleled in our market."
