Arcadia Cold Storage & Logistics personnel joined local Union City and Fulton County officials in addition to representatives from Saxum Real Estate on July 7 to celebrate the groundbreaking for Arcadia’s Atlanta Cold Storage facility. The site is located on the southwestern side of Georgia’s capital.
Hosted by project general contractor, Griffco Design/Build, the event marked the second groundbreaking of Arcadia’s national cold storage platform to be developed in strategic markets across the United States. The suburban Atlanta location provides nearby access to US Interstates 85, 285 and 20 in the heart of the Southeast distribution market. When complete, this facility will play an important role in allowing Arcadia to serve food manufacturing and enduser demand in the region more quickly and efficiently.
“The Arcadia team is very excited to announce this new project in Union City.” said CEO Chris Hughes. “We continue to view the greater Atlanta market as a strategically important logistical hub for food manufacturers, traders, grocery retailers and foodservice distributors, and an integral part of our national distribution network vision. This facility has been thoughtfully designed to support a range of storage and distribution needs for our customers, including unique deep-freeze capabilities for ice cream and other related products.”
The Atlanta Cold Storage operation will be a frozen and refrigerated distribution center with more than 44,000 pallet positions designed to support high-volume throughput handling services, including full pallet management and case picking. The facility will service the Southeastern states of the USA and provide direct access to the ports of Savannah, Charleston, Jacksonville and Mobile.
