Dothan Warehouse Expands Houston County, Alabama, Operations
The company will enlarge the facility by 30,000 square feet and double its trailer parking capacity. The first phase of the project, valued at $20 million, expanded the footprint by 75,000 square feet.
“We appreciate the strong support we have received from the Alabama Department of Commerce, AIDT, City of Dothan, Houston County, Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce/Grow Dothan, the Industrial Development Board of the City of Dothan, Wallace Community College, and Southeast AlabamaWorks,” said Dothan Warehouse President Turner Jones.
Founded in 1980, Dothan Warehouse provides full-service, third-party logistics services to clients based in Alabama and internationally.
“Dothan Warehouse’s expansion will provide a boost to the Wiregrass’ logistics and distribution cluster and open the region to more investment opportunities in the food and beverage sectors,” said Greg Canfield, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce. “With its diverse dry, cold, and freezer storage portfolio, Dothan Warehouse’s project complements our efforts to spark growth in many critical sectors of Alabama’s economy.
The company currently utilizes 845,000 square feet of dry storage space, 185,000 square feet of cold storage space, and 100,000 square feet of frozen storage space.
Dothan Warehouse’s expansion project stems from the increased output of the region’s poultry industry, but the facility also has the capability to store and distribute specialized products, including those produced by the biopharma industry.
