Lineage Logistics LLC will acquire the cold-storage division of Claus Sørensen Group, a cold-storage operator in Denmark.

Founded in 1926, Claus Sørensen is headquartered in Esbjerg, Denmark, and operates nine cold-storage facilities located near major fishing ports and food production facilities. The total capacity of the company’s facility network exceeds 28.2 million ft3 (800,000 m3), with a freezing capacity of approximately 1,985 US tons per day (1,800 metric tons per day).

The acquisition comes after Lineage’s recently announced agreement to acquire Kloosterboer Group. Lineage expects the Sørensen acquisition to contribute to the strategic expansion of its facility network across Europe.

Lineage’s global footprint currently spans more than 2.1 billion ft3 of temperature-controlled capacity in 15 countries.
