Nor-Am opens Dodge City coldstore

Le Mars, Iowa, USA: Nor-Am Cold Storage has opened a 148,000-square-foot (14,000sq metre) coldstore in Dodge City, Kansas.

State and local leaders attended the opening, including Governor Laura Kelly. “Nor-Am is an outstanding, family-oriented company, and its cold-storage capabilities are a critical component in the safe distribution of the high-quality food products Kansas is known for,” Kelly said.

This new freezing, storage and processing location, built by Tippmann Innovation is the latest expansion of Nor-Am’s business. The site has freezing equipment, high-density racking, semi-automated pallet shuttle technology with nearly 17,000 pallet positions, and a 50,000-square-foot processing area.

“We believe this new facility not only enhances Nor-Am’s existing food-supply-chain infrastructure, but also has a direct positive impact on the local economy by adding approximately 90 essential jobs to the area,” said Scott Albers, president for Nor-Am Cold Storage.

Nor-Am Cold Storage is a public, full-service, refrigerated warehouse business with locations in the Midwest
