Newest acquisition in Burleson, Texas, near Fort Worth, gives shippers of perishable goods a wider variety of storage options

Vertical Cold Storage recently purchased a new temperature-controlled facility in Burleson, Texas.

The new warehouse, which is Vertical’s second in the Dallas-Fort Worth market, will employ up to 70 full-time workers and provide area customers with additional flexibility and capacity, the company said.

“Our new facility enables us to optimize the location of our customers throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth market from our Richardson facility on the east side of Dallas to Burleson just south of Fort Worth,” West Hutchison, Vertical president and CEO, said in a news release.

“Burleson leverages our integrated IT platform, standard processes, automated material handling equipment, and AI technology to ensure safe and efficient operations for our customers and associates.”

Vertical, a developer and operator of cold storage distribution centers, is sponsored by real estate investment firm Platform Ventures.

The company’s new facility, located adjacent to Interstate 35, boasts more than 400,000 sq. ft., 53 dock doors, and an average clear height of 55 ft., Vertical reported. The building includes multiple rooms convertible to minus-20 degrees Fahrenheit and is well-suited for a wide range of frozen and refrigerated foods.

Vertical also plans to implement an efficient refrigeration system designed to reduce energy consumption, the company added.
