Temperature-controlled warehousing and logistics provider Americold has officially broken ground in Clearfield UT to expand its facility at 755 East 1700 South.

This project will add 6.5 million cubic feet of temperature-controlled warehouse space to the company’s current 11.2 million cubic foot facility on the site. Together with its Salt Lake City facility, this expansion extends Americold’s market leadership within the greater Salt Lake City metro area to more than 50% of total available capacity.

“We are excited to be able to provide the additional capacity in Salt Lake City that our customers have requested,” said Fred Boehler, president and CEO of Americold. “The new building should be operational in time for our peak volumes during the fourth quarter of 2017. I thank the representatives of the city of Clearfield, Davis County and the state of Utah for their support in this project’s development.”

Americold’s new building will feature ammonia-free, self-contained, refrigeration units with no engine room requirement. This system offers significant energy efficiency gains, zero water usage, and is air-cooled. The new building will include a 34° F dock and adjustable temperature zones to –20° F.

Utah’s population has grown roughly 6.1% between 2010 and 2014, versus overall US population growth of approximately 3.1%, making it the fourth fastest-growing state in the nation.  This growth has been recognized by Americold’s customers, who are enacting their own expansion plans within the region. With easy access to Utah Interstates 15 and 80, Americold’s Clearfield location is well-positioned for local, regional and national distribution.

“Clearfield recognizes the value which Americold brings to the City,” said Clearfield City Mayor Mark Shepherd. “This expansion signifies a continuation of a great partnership with Americold, as well as the beginning of new growth and vitality within the City. It is great to see business not only come to Clearfield, but to thrive in Clearfield.”

Based in Atlanta GA, Americold owns and operates more than 165 temperature-controlled warehouses, with more than 1 billion cubic feet of storage, in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, China, Argentina and Canada. The company serves more than 2,500 customers and employs 11,000 associates worldwide.
