P&B Cold Storage Plans Valdosta, Georgia, Operations

P&B Cold Storage, a subsidiary of North American Cold Storage, plans to establish operations in Valdosta, Georgia. The more than $30 million project is expected to create 100 jobs.

The new 200,000-square-foot facility will be located at the Westside Industrial Park. Construction is scheduled for completion by January 2025.

"We realize that a secret to our company's success is how we recognize and value our employees,” said Mike Betten, CFO and Partner of North American Cold Storage. “ We have an obligation to empower our employees with every available method, including remarkable wages and benefits, flex time, and helping them further their education."

North American Cold Storage offers a variety of warehouse services.

"Last year, we started discussing with our customers their need to consolidate the current supply network into fewer sites," noted Scott Parker, President and Partner of North American Cold Storage. “There is a need for a distribution center in the South, and not wanting to fight the already congested Atlanta area, we started investigating other cities off Interstate 75."

"Valdosta's prime location and strong infrastructure consistently attract leading food processing and logistics companies, solidifying our reputation as a central hub for the Southeast corridor,” added Andrea Schruijer, Valdosta-Lowndes County Development Authority Executive Director. “By locating in Valdosta, P&B Cold Storage will be able to provide reliable and efficient delivery of cold storage goods across the Southeast."
