Company’s newest location in Dunkirk features 181,000 square feet of cold storage and operational space, and 25,000 pallet positions.

Americold recently opened its newest facility in Dunkirk, N.Y.

With 181,000 square feet of cold storage and operational space, this LEED-certified facility features 25,000 pallet positions to support cold storage needs in the western New York region, the company said.

“This is our first facility in western New York, and we’re excited to expand in this area at the request of our customers,” said George Chappelle, CEO at Americold. “Our goal is to provide the best-in-class service to all of our customers and this facility will help us to do that in New York.”

The new facility, which this week hosted a grand opening ceremony, is located on Williams Street, near Arrowhead Drive in Dunkirk, and is the most recent addition to the company’s portfolio of 250 locations around the globe.

The facility will employ more than 60 full- and part-time associates, Americold said.

And as part of Americold’s commitment to give back to the local communities it serves, the company partnered with Feed the Children to distribute 25-pound boxes of food and 15-pound boxes of essential items to more than 300 Dunkirk families after the grand opening ceremony.
