Merchandise Warehouse Co., Indianapolis, opened the doors to its new, multi-temperature facility located at 1414 South West Street in Indianapolis.

The 100,000-square-foot, technologically advanced refrigerated warehouse adds to the company’s existing 400,000 square feet of cold storage. Merchandise Warehouse selected Tippmann Innovation (TI), Fort Wayne, Ind., to develop the new cutting-edge refrigerated facility.

The new building is totally convertible, allowing Merchandise Warehouse to cater to a wide variety of clients, including food and grocery, whose products demand a range of temperatures. The facility can be operated from 40°F to -10°F, with a unique system for high-density pallet racking from Radioshuttle, Canada.

“Tippmann Innovation helped us with new thinking, beyond the scope of our original parameters, and was able to help us design a building with 25% more pallet positions, and this is good for our customers,” says Tim Siddiq, president and CEO of Merchandise Warehouse.

“We’d like to thank Merchandise Warehouse for allowing us to develop a building that embraces so many new technologies under one roof. This new refrigerated warehouse facility is truly a showcase for the application of advanced technologies. It’s an example of integrating a design with a business model that helps our client realize a return on their investment, while providing their customers with a cutting-edge solution,” says Rob Adams, principal, Tippmann Innovation.
