January 31st, 2023 · Leave a Comment

Company set to expand its first facility in Jacksonville, offering more than 350,000 square feet of Cold Storage Space

FlexCold is expanding its Jacksonville facility, which will span more than 350,000 square feet and offer 55,000 pallet positions. The facility is strategically located three miles to the port and is centrally located to population growth centers.

The FlexCold-Jacksonville expansion is targeting construction to commence in the first quarter of 2023 with completion estimated to be in summer 2024.  The expansion of FlexCold-Jacksonville will further enhance the company’s capabilities to service the growing import and export demand, as well as the strategic distribution services offerings to major population centers in the Southeastern US.  Further, the expansion will allow FlexCold-Jacksonville to consolidate service offerings into a single location to minimize product movements and touches to reduce costs and damage.

As Florida’s number one container port, Jacksonville Port Authority (JAXPORT) provides accessibility to over 98 million consumers within one day’s drive and direct ocean services to 140 ports in 70 countries. FlexCold is within minutes of the Blount Island terminal, which recently completed its harbor deepening project that increased the water depth to 47 feet, allowing for larger ships and more frequent sailings.

As an organization, FlexCold’s primary competitive advantage comes from its ability to pair best-in-class-expertise across real estate, technology, and deep-operational insights helping to optimize the cold-storage process: from how the land is developed, to design of the building, and where and how food is stored and moved. Leveraging FlexCold leadership’s expertise, the company offers a modern design with innovative technology such as FLEXSPACE Mobile Racking and ALTA refrigeration as well as a strategic location and a unique team-oriented culture.

With its opening in late summer 2022, the company offered more than 150,000 square feet of space. The newest expansion more than doubles the overall building footprint to more than 350,000 square feet, bringing the total number of pallet positions to 55,000, up from the initial 25,000. With a keen eye and expertise on import and exporting capabilities, FlexCold-Jacksonville’s service offerings are ideal for poultry, seafood, meat, and frozen consumer-packaged goods.
