Cloverleaf Cold Storage will break ground on a large addition to its Columbus, Ohio, refrigerated warehouse before the end of March. The 77,000-square-foot addition is the second expansion that the Iowa-based company has undertaken since the company purchased the building in 2007. The new construction will increase the size of the food grade facility by over 40 percent.
The business, which provides storage and logistic support to local and national food processors and distributors, employs 28 people and the addition should lead to an increase of the staff by at least 15 percent. The design of the warehouse incorporates the latest in energy-saving technology including LED lighting, passive solar reflective roofing, next-generation insulation and computer-monitored refrigeration controls.
“Cloverleaf’s investment in the Columbus market has been highly successful,” commented Daniel Kaplan, company president. “The city has been a great home for our central Ohio location and we look forward to future growth in the region.”
Cloverleaf Cold Storage is a family owned and operated cold storage warehouse firm with 16 facilities in the U.S.
