RLS Logistics, a third-party provider of cold chain solutions, acquired Premier Refrigerated Warehouse. The acquired company, which operates a cold-storage warehouse in Fort Worth, Texas, will now be known as RLS Premier.
While RLS Premier is currently located in Fort Worth, it will be relocating to a newly constructed facility that is slated to open later this year in Burleson, Texas. The new warehouse will more than triple RLS Premier’s storage capacity, adding space for commodities such as frozen and refrigerated meat and dairy products. The facility will be cooled by a refrigeration system manufactured by Alta Refrigeration, Peachtree City, Ga., that uses synthetic refrigerants.
In related news, New Jersey-based RLS Logistics acquired Partners Alliance Cold Storage, a cold-storage warehousing provider, of Ontario, Calif. The acquired company will now be known as RLS Alliance. The acquisition of RLS Alliance adds 275,000 ft2 of temperature-controlled warehousing capacity to the RLS network.
