Cloverleaf Cold Storage upgrades its newly acquired warehouses

Sioux City, IA, US: Cloverleaf Cold Storage has expanded its recently acquired temperature controlled warehouse in Benson, North Carolina.

Cloverleaf purchased the site June last year and the extended warehouse was operational earlier this month. The Benson facility adds 3,500 pallet positions of convertible refrigerated space and 270sq metres feet to the refrigerated loading dock. This brings the total capacity at the Benson warehouse to just over 18,500 pallet positions.

The increased capacity provided means this Cloverleaf plant is now better able to fulfil its function as a full service cold storage warehouse with adequate capacity for production and distribution capabilities, the company says.

This project is part of an $8m (£4,8m) capital improvement investment in three facilities that Cloverleaf purchased in June 2010. The other warehouses are in Sumter, SC and Chesapeake, VA.

All three plants are undergoing major upgrades as part of a green initiative by the company. Cloverleaf Cold Storage is a family-owned and operated public refrigerated warehouse company with 5.5m sq metres of refrigerated space located in 14 facilities in the central and eastern United States.

Cloverleaf is among the ten largest public refrigerated companies in the United States according to IARW, an industry trade group.
