Henningsen Cold Storage Co. has begun work to build a 5,000,000-cubic-foot public refrigerated warehouse (PRW) in Grandview, Washington, to meet growing demand among customers in the Yakima Valley and Columbian Basin regions of the state. Completion of the construction project is scheduled for the summer of 2018.
Situated near the eastern border of Yakima County in south-central part of Washington, Grandview is 40 miles equidistant from the city of Yakima and the Tri-Cities of Richland, Pasco and Kennewick. It is in the heart of a thriving agri-business region and is a well placed distribution point to serve clients throughout the entire Pacific Northwest.

It is designed to accommodate both production support and high-volume distribution business. A flexible racking design and layout will enable Henningsen to fulfill a wide variety of customer requirements.
Henningsen Transportation Services will augment the operation by offering local, regional and nationwide transport services to manufacturers, retail and foodservice distributors, and international clients utilizing the facility.
Headquartered in Hillsboro, Oregon, Henningsen Cold Storage Co. ranks among the Top 10 public refrigerated warehousing operators in the USA, with 11 facilities in six states providing 60 million cubic feet of temperature controlled storage space.
