WCS Logistics Plans Frederick County, Virginia, Operations

WCS Logistics plans to expand operations in Frederick County, Virginia. The $27 million project is expected to create 15 jobs.

The new 83,000-square-foot cold storage facility will have capacity for over 13,000 pallets to meet increasing demand.

“WCS Logistics is proud to announce this investment in our newest facility,” said Peter Yates, Chief Operating Officer of WCS Logistics. “This is our second expansion in the cold storage market in the last five years, and we are excited to be able to better serve our existing customers and to offer our services to others we have not had the capacity to assist with their third-party logistics needs.”

“WCS Logistics’ continued growth demonstrates the advantages of a Virginia location, and I am thrilled the company is doubling down on the Commonwealth for its next cold storage facility,” noted Secretary of Commerce and Trade Caren Merrick. “WCS has provided jobs for hard-working Virginians for more than 100 years, and we look forward to its next chapter of success in Frederick County.

Cold Storage offers a wide range of storage options, including freezer, cooler, controlled atmosphere, tempering, climate control, dry storage, office space, lease, and build to suit.
