Fully Automated Cold Storage Facility Coming to Idaho
NewCold, a cold storage and logistics specialist based in The Netherlands, will open its second fully automated cold storage facility in the U.S. in 2019. Located in Burley, Idaho, the 180,000 ft2 freezer facility will bring an estimated 75 jobs to the area. It will utilize automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS) to automatically move and store products in the high-bay warehouse.
The building will serve the needs in the northwestern U.S. region for McCain Foods USA Inc., a division of McCain Foods Ltd., a manufacturer of frozen french fries and potato specialties. NewCold’s first U.S. facility opened earlier this year in Tacoma, Wash.
