A M King to build new DC for Henry Avocado

Date:

A M King, Charlotte, N.C., will begin construction on a new cold storage distribution center for avocado producer Henry Avocado Corp., Escondido, Calif. The project will allow the company to expand its operations on the East Coast, providing a new supply chain of high-quality avocados to restaurants, food distributors and grocery stores.

A M King plans to convert an existing leased warehouse space into a 25,000-square-foot cold storage distribution center late this month, with an anticipated completion in September. The facility will include a mix of forced air rooms, cooler storage space for produce, loading docks and a mechanical equipment room. LED lighting and variable frequency drives (VFDs) will be installed to reduce energy consumption and increase operating efficiency.
