SnoTemp Cold Storage to Open Refrigerated Warehouse in Redmond
Slated to open early 2019, the 40,000 sq. ft. warehouse will serve Central Oregon’s growing food and beverage industry
Redmond, Ore. – SnoTemp Cold Storage recently announced plans to build a 40,000 sq. ft. temperature controlled warehouse in Redmond, Ore, making this SnoTemp’s third Oregon location. The facility will be located at 790 NE Kingwood Ave. with construction slated to start this summer and an opening date projected for early 2019.
SnoTemp currently operates two facilities along the I-5 corridor in Eugene and Albany and provides critical infrastructure for the Willamette Valley food and beverage manufacturing sector.
“This new location has the potential to significantly decrease supply chain costs for our Central Oregon based customers, providing the cold chain infrastructure they need to continue their growth,” stated SnoTemp’s CEO Jason Lafferty. “We can help these businesses scale. Whether they need one pallet or one thousand pallets stored, we can help.”
The Central Oregon region is home to more than 100 food and beverage manufacturers, many of whom are currently served by SnoTemp’s Eugene location. The Redmond location will offer frozen (-5F), cooler (34F), and dry storage, be OLCC licensed and will be a USDA certified organic warehouse.
SnoTemp provides temperature controlled warehousing services including order fulfillment for finished goods, packaging and raw materials storage with supply chain integration and coordination for dozens of distributors and big-box retailers. Technological solutions include real-time access to online inventory, EDI integration, RF scanning, and integration with customer business intelligence platforms.
