Henningsen Cold Storage Co will build a new 166,000-square-foot facility in Salem OR at Mill Creek Corporate Center.

SEDCOR (Salem Strategic Economic Development Corporation), the city of Salem, and Oregon’s Department of Administrative Services (DAS) have been working closely with Henningsen for several months on the details of its new facility. The company executed a purchase and sale agreement with Oregon Department of Administrative Services in July and anticipates beginning site preparation, on a 34-acre parcel, in the central portion of the corporate industrial campus, adjacent to Kuebler Boulevard.

Henningsen anticipates investing $27 million in this facility, which will serve as a hub of activity for food processors, providing infrastructure needed for an industry that accounts for approximately 50% of the region’s manufacturing base.  This is the first of an anticipated four-phase development, with future phases expected to generate additional jobs and investment. Henningsen anticipates opening in spring 2017.

The company has locations in Washington, Idaho, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and Oregon, and the Mill Creek location will be its second Salem OR facility. The city of Salem and DAS will collaborate to construct a new traffic signal at Mill Creek Drive and Kuebler Boulevard, road improvements on Mill Creek Drive, and construction of an internal street, to serve the facility and future phases of development at Mill Creek Corporate Center.

“As a fifth-generation family-owned company, we are eager to support the local activity of food processors and agricultural partners in the community,” said Mike Henningsen, company chairman and president. “With our second Salem facility, we can better enhance the supply chain infrastructure in the region, which is currently struggling to keep up with the increasing demands of regulatory requirements and efficiencies.”

Henningsen is one of the largest public refrigerated warehousing companies in the United States, with 10 facilities in six states providing more than 53 million cubic feet of temperature-controlled storage.
