A M King will build 55,000 square feet of perishable expansion and renovate 100,000 square feet of existing perishable areas.
A M King, Charlotte, N.C., announced its third project for ALDI, Batavia, Ill.
The new cold storage distribution center at Jefferson, Ga., will boost the company’s existing perishables space, providing the ability to offer a larger selection of high-quality products and spur overall company growth. Construction is scheduled to be completed by May 2018.
A M King will build 55,000 square feet of perishable expansion and renovate 100,000 square feet of existing perishable areas. The project will also include renovation of the employee welfare areas and adding docks on the backside of the dry warehouse for special buy items.

“The owner has requested that we fast track this project to meet required product release dates,” says Carl Morse, A M King senior project manager. “We are also focusing on a major interior renovation, specifically in the perishable area, that will house ALDI’s expanding line of products.”
