FlexCold announced plans to open its second cold-storage facility in the United States and expand its first facility in Jacksonville, Fla.  

The new facility will be built in Charleston, S.C., where the company’s headquarters are located. It is expected to be operational by late summer 2024. The $50 million investment will be located within 30 minutes of the Port of Charleston and will support import and export business, specifically seafood. The planned facility will offer more than 30,000 pallet positions of cold-storage space.

Meanwhile, the expanded facility in Jacksonville will span more than 350,000 ft2 and offer 55,000 pallet positions of chilled and frozen storage. Construction is scheduled to commence in the first quarter of 2023, with completion estimated to be in the summer of 2024. The expansion will further enhance the company’s capabilities to service the growing import and export demand as well as its distribution services offerings to major population centers in the southeast United States.
