FlexCold plans to open its second cold-storage facility in the United States in Charleston, S.C., where the company’s headquarters are located. The facility is scheduled to be operational by late summer 2024.

The facility will be located within 30 minutes of the Port of Charleston and will support import and export business, specifically seafood, blast freezing and USDA and FDA inspections. It will offer more than 30,000 pallet positions of cold-storage space. The $50 million investment will create 59 jobs.

FlexCold plans to continue to expand and announce the opening of new facilities later this year. The company’s first facility, located in Jacksonville, Fla., opened in the fall of 2022.
