Americold, Atlanta, broke ground on the expansion of its Clearfield, Utah, regional distribution center. This project will add 6.5 million cubic feet of temperature-controlled warehouse space to the current 11.2 million-cubic-foot facility, and will significantly extends Americold’s market leadership within the Greater Salt Lake City Metro Area to more than 50% of total available capacity.

“We are excited to be able to provide the additional capacity in Salt Lake City that our customers have requested.  The new building should be operational in time for our peak volumes during the fourth quarter of 2017,” says Fred Boehler, president and CEO. “I thank the representatives of the City of Clearfield, Davis County and the State of Utah for their support in this project’s development.” 

Americold’s new building will feature ammonia-free, self-contained, air-cooled refrigeration units with energy efficiency gains, zero water usage and no engine room requirement. The new building will include a 34°F dock and adjustable temperature zones to -20°F.
