Agile Cold Storage Plans Claymont, Delaware, Cold Storage Facility
The 275,000-square-foot facility, located in First State Crossing, will help the company meet growing demand from North American food manufacturers, processors and growers.
“During the past two years, we have worked closely with Delaware officials who recognized the need for modernized cold storage and the benefits that it offers, including job creation and improved supply chain efficiencies,” said Don Schoenl, Agile Cold Storage president and CEO. “We are grateful to local and state representatives for their professionalism and commitment. Agile is looking forward to hiring our team members and servicing our customers starting next summer.”
Agile Cold specializes in blast freezing, layer/case picking, cross-docking, export services, tempering, and e-commerce and offers automation in warehouse receiving, storage, and shipping and a multi-temperature storage network suitable for a wide variety of inventory.
“We are excited that Agile Cold Storage is choosing Delaware for its next facility. This will create good jobs and economic investment in Claymont,” Governor John Carney noted. “Their operations will build on Delaware’s strong foundation in food manufacturing and transportation, helping our region’s supply chain.”
Delaware Prosperity Partnership (DPP) supported the company’s request to the Council on Development Finance for a Jobs Performance Grant of up to $510,500 and a Capital Expenditures Grant of up to $4.05 million from the Delaware Strategic Fund. Distribution of these grants is dependent upon the company meeting commitments as outlined to the CDF, which reviewed and approved Agile Cold’s request.
