NewCold, a Netherlands-based specialist in automated cold storage, celebrated the grand opening of its fully automated cold storage facility in Burley, Idaho, the week of September 30. The $90 million, 180,000 ft2 facility is one of the largest cold storage warehouses in the nation, according to NewCold.
NewCold uses technology to automatically move and store products in the high-bay warehouse, storing foods at -5°F, with oxygen levels lowered to 16.5 percent for fire prevention. This allows for a more energy-efficient and food-safe alternative compared to conventional cold storage solutions. The Burley facility employs 100.
