WEL Companies Expanding Warehouse/Distribution in Gooding, Idaho
"The Gooding location provides us with a large building capable of retrofitting for full refrigeration and is ideally located next to rail for more efficient transport of stored products to our customers throughout the country," said Bruce Tielens, president and CEO of WEL Companies. "Along with good highway access, this Gooding facility will be a prime location for our storage and transport operations."
The company is planning to hire five warehouse employees and 15 commercial truck drivers immediately. WEL will partner with the College of Southern Idaho on creating truck-driving training classes.
WEL will shift the facility into a fully-refrigerated space in the coming months for storage of dairy and other perishable foods.
