Melbourne, FL (October 21, 2020) — Nor-Am Cold Storage, a public, full-service refrigerated warehouse operation, hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of their new state-of-the-art 148,000-square-foot facility located in Dodge City, Kansas. State and local leaders were in attendance to celebrate the opening, including Gov. Laura Kelly. “Nor-Am is an outstanding, family-oriented company, and its cold-storage capabilities are a critical component in the safe distribution of the high-quality food products Kansas is known for,” Governor Laura Kelly said. “Between its two locations, the company will play an essential role in our state’s efforts to keep food on the plates of families statewide and nationwide. I am pleased to welcome Nor-Am to another Kansas community.”
This new freezing, storage and processing location, built by Tippmann Innovation (‘Ti’), a nationally recognized leader in the construction of cold chain facilities, is the latest expansion of Nor-Am’s business. The facility is equipped with state-of-the-art freezing equipment, high-density racking, semi-automated pallet shuttle technology with nearly 17,000 pallet positions, and a 50,000-square-foot processing area. “We believe this new facility not only enhances Nor-Am’s existing food-supply-chain infrastructure, but also has a direct positive impact on the local economy by adding approximately 90 essential jobs to the area,” said Scott Albers, President for Nor-Am Cold Storage.
A project like this requires planning, expertise and execution, which Nor-Am entrusted to Ti. “Over the past 20 years, Ti has supported several projects for Nor-Am, and as a result of this growing relationship, they knew they could count on us to do a great job with this facility,” said Sam Tippmann, Principal at Ti. “On behalf of Ti, we couldn’t be more excited to deliver this modern facility to Nor-Am and to the community. We know it will be efficient and effective in meeting the market demands of Nor-Am and their customers, now and into the future.”
