U.S. Cold Storage considering Fredericksburg-area facility

By

The Fredericksburg area at the Lebanon-Berks county line already has a full complement of warehouses, but there's potential for New Jersey-based United States Cold Storage to locate a new $21 million facility near there next year.

A greenfield site near Fredericksburg is one of two being considered by U.S. Cold Storage, a refrigerated warehousing and logistics company serving the food industries, according to Lehigh Valley Business.

Mickey Hoffman, corporate development director for U.S. Cold Storage, told LVB the company hasn’t yet acquired property for the project and is still trying to decide between the Fredericksburg location and another in Bucks County.

The proposed facility could employ about 100 people and would be the first phase in a larger complex.

Hoffman did not immediately return calls to the Business Journal seeking additional detail about the Fredericksburg site.

Tom McKeon, executive director of the Berks County Industrial Development Authority, said U.S. Cold Storage was reviewing existing warehousing sites around the area last year, but he hasn’t heard from the company since then.

Lehigh Valley Business and the Central Penn Business Journal are owned by Journal Multimedia.
