The state-of-the-art facility, which serves as Butterball’s southeast distribution center, will handle more than 600 million pounds of product annually for the company.
The Warsaw expansion includes a newly constructed 145,000-square-foot cold storage warehouse and distribution facility on 45 acres of land. The fully racked facility is equipped with 65-foot refrigerated docks and convertible storage rooms, each with flexible storage temperature controls. The facility utilizes advanced CO2 refrigeration systems, LED lighting, the latest in site security, to include surveillance systems for increased security, and cutting edge fire suppression technology.
United States Cold Storage, the third largest cold storage provider in the world, provides storage for Butterball in other locations around the U.S. The original storage space opened in 1997 to store Carolina Turkeys before it acquired Butterball. The expansion compliments five strategically located distribution centers throughout the U.S.
