Tippmann builds $65m coldstore in Canada

Hamilton, Ontario, Canada: Tippmann Innovation is working with Sierra Supply Chain Services and Penta Properties to build a coldstore in Hamilton, Ontario.

This building was developed with a focus on energy efficiency, advanced warehouse management, and value-add services to refrigerated food providers. “We have been working with Ti for several years,” said Rob Vanden Broek, chief executive, Sierra Supply Chain.

“Over the past year and a half, we have toured several of their recently constructed buildings and worked closely with the Ti engineering team to develop the plan and design of this state-of-the-art cold storage and processing facility,” said Vanden Broek.

The new $65m complex is in the City of Hamilton, a suburb of Toronto, within the Red Hill Business Park. Upon completion, the 65-foot-tall building will provide 250,000 sq ft of storage and 30,000sq ft of food processing space.

“We are very excited to have this opportunity to continue our valued partnership with Sierra Supply Chain in support of this important project,” said Sam Tippmann, president, Tippmann Innovation.

“This project continues the growth and expansion of our development footprint and is yet another exceptional example of market demand advancing cold chain infrastructure investment across North America. At Ti, we feel privileged to be a part of an essential industry that brings value to so many, and is valued by so many,” he said.
