VersaCold Logistics Services, Canada, opened Phase 1 of its Milton distribution center, which was established as a result of VersaCold's overall growth strategy as well as an expanded partnership with Nestlé Canada.

Located at 2701 High Point Drive in Milton, Ontario, the Milton distribution center is the largest capital investment ever made by VersaCold, and upon completion, will be dubbed as one of Canada’s largest third-party operated refrigerated facilities by cubic footage. Total cubic footage will be over 19.1 million cubic feet once the project has completed Phase 3 in December 2018.

"This investment in VersaCold’s infrastructure is one of several our organization has made over the last few years, and is indicative of our commitment to growth and responding to our client’s needs" says Douglas Harrison, president and CEO. "We are excited to demonstrate our leadership within the Canadian marketplace, by partnering with Nestlé and demonstrating the deep commitment to safety, quality and freshness that is at the heart of the VersaCold brand."

"Nestlé is committed to exploring and driving improved solutions to service our customers and consumers," says Greg Christopher, senior vice president, supply chain operations, Nestlé Canada. "Our continued partnership with VersaCold, now at the Milton facility, is a strategic decision to simplify, increase speed and flexibility as we strive to be industry leaders in service, efficiency and reliability."
