Interstate Warehousing Double Expansion Adds to Facilities in Indiana and Illinois

Interstate Warehousing has fin­ished the Phase IV expansion at its Indianapolis (Franklin), IN cold storage facility. The compa­ny, part of the Tippmann Group, has also completed an expansion of its warehouse in Joliet, IL.

The 140,000 sq. ft. expan­sion brings the total size of that facility to 568,000 sq. ft.  Originally constructed in 2005, it had gone through expansions in 2008 and 2010 prior to the latest addition, which became opera­tional in August.

The Joliet project, completed last September, added more than 100,000 sq. ft. of freezer space, increasing the size of that facility to 346,000 sq. ft. Company-wide, Interstate Ware­housing owns and operates more than 80 million cubic ft. of frozen and refrigerated warehous­ing and distribution space throughout the U.S.

“This is an exciting time for us,” said Chuck Tippmann, president of Tippmann Group/Interstate Warehousing. “As our customers continue to grow, we look forward to being able to serve them in big­ger and better ways through these new additions to our facilities.”

The Tippmann Group special­izes in construction and management of refrigerated/frozen distri­bution centers. It has designed and built such facilities for some of the largest companies in the food industry, including retailers, foodservice operators and food processors.

The company’s Interstate Warehousing operation is ranked among the top 10 public refriger­ated warehousing systems in the USA, with customized distribu­tion programs at eight facilities throughout the country.
