US-based cold storage developer Tippmann Innovation (Ti) has announced the commencement of construction of a $65m cold storage facility in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
For the construction of the cold storage facility, Ti is working with its long-term partners, warehouse operator Sierra Supply Chain Services and property developer Penta Properties.
The building will be developed with an aim to achieve energy efficiency and advanced warehouse management, and provide value added service to refrigerated food providers.
Sierra Supply Chain CEO Rob Vanden Broek said: “We have been working with Ti for several years. Over the past year and a half, we have toured several of their recently constructed buildings and worked closely with the Ti engineering team to develop the plan and design of this state-of-the-art cold storage and processing facility.”
The 65ft tall facility will be situated within the Red Hill Business Park.
After completion of construction of the complex, the facility will have about 250,000ft2 of storage space, and 30,000ft2 of food processing space.
Ti president Sam Tippmann said: “We are very excited to have this opportunity to continue our valued partnership with Sierra Supply Chain in support of this important project.
“This project continues the growth and expansion of our development footprint and is yet another exceptional example of market demand advancing cold chain infrastructure investment across North America. At Ti, we feel privileged to be a part of an essential industry that brings value to so many, and is valued by so many.”
