USCS Atlanta expansion close to completion

USCS’s McDonough facility.
United States Cold Storage ("USCS") is targeting completion of the Phase II expansion to its McDonough 2 public refrigerated warehouse in metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia, this July.

In a unique business partnership, the facility is attached to an adjacent manufacturing facility owned by Dole Packaged Foods. The partnership involves USCS receiving, storing, and supplying all incoming ingredients to the processing facility and subsequently warehousing and distributing Dole's finished products throughout the Southeast. At full capacity, the Dole facility is expected to produce 60 million pounds of frozen fruit annually for retail, food-service and private label customers on the East Coast; phased production has begun, and the facility should be fully operational by September.

USCS first established a McDonough facility in 2016 and added a second location in 2018. Shortly after opening McDonough 2, USCS and Dole discussed a Phase II addition that would attach to Dole's plant and feature an automated storage and retrieval system. That 14.6-million-cubic foot addition is already close to full operation and boosts the facility's total capacity to more than 73,000 pallet locations and as many as 49 refrigerated, enclosed dock doors.
