Distribution Center Breaks Ground in Texas
Mission Produce Inc., an avocado supplier, broke ground on a distribution center in Laredo, Texas, which will initially create approximately 75 jobs. The 262,000 ft2 facility will serve as a major distribution hub for Mexican avocados to the United States.
The mega-center is expected to increase Mission’s advantage within the avocado sector. The company also plans to use the facility to expand its third-party services to other businesses in the produce industry. The facility will include ample refrigerated dock and cooler space designated for third-party logistics crossings and short-term storage.
A M King performed design services for the new cold storage and distribution center. The company began construction in May 2020, and it will be completed in mid-2021.
