Swiss chocolate maker Lindt acquires warehouse space in Carlisle

By ,

Swiss chocolate maker Lindt & Sprungli announced acquisition today of a 400,000-square-foot warehouse and distribution center in the Carlisle area.

The facility will house a distribution center and, eventually, a Lindt USA retail factory store, according to a news release.

The new storage and distribution facility will allow the company to "produce at an increased capacity to meet growing consumer and market demand," the release said.

The news follows a recent announcement of a major, multimillion-dollar expansion plan for manufacturing at the company's U.S. headquarters in Stratham, N.H., where Lindt produces premium chocolate products from bean to finished product.

"As a leader in the premium chocolate category, Lindt is constantly looking for ways to support continued growth and maintain strong company distribution," said Thomas Linemayr, president and CEO of Lindt USA. "The investment in this warehouse facility is another step for Lindt toward meeting the growing demand for premium chocolate."

Over the coming months, the new facility will be updated to meet company needs and is expected to be operating as a warehouse and distribution center in early 2015. Construction of the retail store will be part of the second phase of facility updates and is also expected to be open to consumers in early 2015.

With the acquisition of the new space in Carlisle, Lindt now operates three warehouse facilities throughout the U.S., including the storage and warehouse capabilities on the Stratham campus.

Lindt USA produces a wide range of premium chocolate products, including Lindor truffles, the popular Lindt Hello collection and a wide range of seasonal and gifting items.

It makes sense to hold storage and logistics capacity in an area where you're doing business. It's a good solution that will definitely help your company to save money on operations in the area!

How did this turn out 3 years later? Is there an updated article on the new warehouse?

I wonder what has been the positive benefits of having this facility establish itself in the community. There is often a direct correlation between a large organization establishing itself in a city and the vertical benefits to the residents of the community.

Wish we could attract a chocolate factory closer to my home town of Vaughan.

I was intrigued by reading this this. I'm really glad Carlisle is utilizing its great resources and culture to lure businesses to it. Hopefully this trend will continue to improve in the coming years.

I foresee a lot of chocolate lovers going to start hanging around this area in the new future hey? Haha! But in all honesty, I think it's pretty amazing that Lindt is moving in. Even when my storage Adelaide north opened up, it created a small amount of jobs for the people in the town, so I can imagine what such a big warehouse and production facility is going to do where they are moving to!
