Learn more about Merchandise Warehouse's newly opened cold storage facility, its second in central Indiana.

Merchandise Warehouse Company Inc announced the grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony for its new cold storage facility. The new location at 725 Pioneer Trace in Pendleton IN features 160,000 square feet of temperature-controlled storage and two convertible rooms with the capacity to reach minus 20 degrees Fahrenheit to store frozen items such as ice cream.

“Our clients are growing, and we need to keep up with their ever-changing requirements,” said Tim Siddiq, president and CEO of Merchandise Warehouse. “This facility is another example of how we have come a long way since my grandfather’s warehouse. We’re taking the business he built to the next level, but his commitment to client satisfaction will always be our number one priority.”

The temperature-controlled environment in the new site will be capable of storing raw materials and finished products for frozen and refrigerated food items and pharmaceutical manufacturing. With room for expansion, the location will be an asset to Merchandise Warehouse as client needs continue to grow and diversify.

At the grand opening event, visitors were able to take a facility tour, network with industry VIPs and speakers, and meet new members of the Merchandise Warehouse team, and more. US Rep Susan W Brooks was guest speaker at the event.

Merchandise Warehouse is a logistics provider of temperature-controlled warehouse services in the Midwest with more than 560,000 square feet of sprinkler-protected, multi-temperature storage. Both its locations are in central Indiana but each has unique capabilities. The Indianapolis location offers indoor rail access, quick freezing and thawing capabilities while the Pendleton facility offers minus 20 degrees Fahrenheit capability. Additional features include CCTV; EDI; WMS; RF scanners; and a web portal with real-time access to activity reports, temperatures and climate monitoring.
