Americold, Atlanta, officially opened the new addition to its Clearfield, Utah, campus.
Located at 755 E 1700 S in Clearfield, the new building adds more than 9.5 million cubic feet of temperature-controlled warehouse space, bringing the total capacity of the campus to nearly 21 million cubic feet.
Together with its neighboring Salt Lake City facility, Americold’s Clearfield footprint significantly extends the company’s market leadership in northern Utah to greater than 50% of total temperature-controlled warehouse capacity.
“This is the first grand opening of the three U.S. facilities for which we’ve broken ground this year,” says Fred Boehler, president and CEO. “It’s amazing to see the hard work of the local community, our contractors and suppliers and our Americold team paying off with the opening of this much-needed operation.”
The new facility, which broke ground in March, features innovative technologies that eradicate the need for a large engine room and on-site ammonia storage, but still offers adjustable temperature zones down to -20°F along with refrigerated docks. Once fully operational, the campus will employ more than 120 associates in full- and part-time positions.
The Clearfield Campus is Americold’s gateway for distribution to the U.S. West Coast. The operation is one of five designated National Consolidation Centers that form Americold’s coast-to-coast distribution network. Customers can deliver to any of Americold’s National Consolidation Center gateways, consolidate less-than- truckload volumes with other products for the same destinations and benefit from scheduled deliveries to almost every foodservice provider and food retailer nationwide.
