U.S. Cold Storage, Cherry Hill, NJ, is building a cold storage facility in Fresno, CA, which it hopes to complete by next summer. The facility will house 4.53 million cubic feet of storage space, 3.36 million cubic feet of which will be designed for minus-20 degree storage. In addition, Fresno will be capable of blast freezing 240,000 pounds of product per day and providing cross-docking services with a 60-foot refrigerated dock area. The company is also adding 4 million cubic feet of cold storage space to its existing facility in Bethlehem, PA. Included in the project is space for 15,000 additional pallet positions, a carbon dioxide refrigeration system and the latest in fire protection. Once completed in early December, the facility will contain a total of nearly 9 million cubic feet of storage space and more than 30,000 racked pallet positions.
