Dick Cold Storage, Columbus, Ohio, broke ground on a new 115,000-square-foot public refrigerated warehouse.
Tippmann Innovation, Fort Wayne, Ind., is working to build the facility with state-of-the-art refrigeration technology capable of temperatures as low as -20°F. The warehouse will feature 15,000 pallet positions, including both traditional pallet racking and storage and high-density pallet storage, and its unique 50-foot ceilings offer expanded vertical storage for greater cubic feet of storage in a smaller square footage footprint.
The new facility also fulfills a need for refrigerated frozen storage in the Columbus area. The facility will offer quick-freezing capabilities for temperature-sensitive products, as well as frozen, cooler and dry storage.
The project is slated for completion later this year, and will support 30 full-time positions.
“Tippmann Innovation’s experience and reputation in cold storage building is well-known and well-respected,” says Don Dick, owner and CEO of Dick Cold Storage. “After touring one of Tippmann’s newly completed projects, we were very impressed with the company’s commitment to quality, design and technology. We’re confident that our new facility will be at the cutting-edge of cold storage innovation.”
