Conestoga to expand Canadian cold storage operations

June 23, 2023
Greenfield facility in Halton Hills, Ontario, will boast 96 million cu. ft. of temperature-controlled storage, 150-ft. ceilings when it opens late next year.

Conestoga Cold Storage Limited, a provider of temperature-controlled warehousing and logistics solutions, is expanding operations with the construction of a new greenfield facility in Halton Hills, Ontario.

This state-of-the-art building is set to become one of the largest cold storage facilities in the world, boasting cutting-edge technology, sustainable practices, and a capacity of over 96 million cu. ft., the company said.

“This expansion represents a significant milestone for Conestoga Cold Storage,” Gavin Sargeant, Conestoga vice president, said in a news release. “We are proud to announce the construction of this world-class facility, which will not only solidify our position as an industry leader but also allow us to meet the growing demand for cold storage solutions.

“Our commitment to delivering exceptional services to our customers remains unwavering, and this expansion will further enhance our capabilities."

The facility, which is currently under construction, will feature ceiling heights of more than 150 ft. With the first phase of the project scheduled to open its doors in late 2024, the facility will leverage automation and advanced logistics systems to provide “unparalleled” efficiency and accuracy in cold storage management.

“For five decades we have been committed to building a stronger and more agile cold chain in Canada,” said Greg Laurin, Conestoga president and CEO. “As the food sector has grown in size and complexity, Conestoga Cold Storage has grown along with it. We look forward to continuing the tradition of bringing cutting-edge, innovative solutions to the frozen food logistics industry now and into the future.”
