Preferred Freezer Services Break Ground on New Jersey Cold Storage Facility

Preferred Freezer Services (PFS), a temperature-controlled warehousing company based in the US, already have a significant presence in the market. The company operate thirty-seven cold storage facilities in the US alone, eight of which are situated in New Jersey, whilst also providing services as far afield as China and Vietnam. At present however it does appear that the US market remains the primary concern of PFS, as they recently broke ground on their ninth New Jersey Facility, their thirty-eighth in the US as a whole.

The new facility will be located in Kearny, New Jersey where the I-95 meets Interstate 280, sitting in close proximity to exit 15W and providing easy access to the George Washington Bridge and Lincoln Tunnel. In a press release concerning the new premises, PFS stated that “the Kearny facility will satisfy demand for modern and efficient cold storage warehousing services exceeding reach to the Northern New Jersey and Manhattan markets.”

Scheduled to open in the summer of 2018, the Kearny facility will provide storage capacity for approximately 30,000 pallets spread over an area of over 190,000sq ft. Consisting of 24 dock doors to ensure fast and efficient access, the facility will offer full USDA import and export capability along with a multi-purpose room designated for value-added services. Consistency and product integrity will be sustained by a full on-site generator backup.

“We are excited to provide additional superior cold storage space in our flagship New Jersey market.” said Brian Beattie, President of Preferred Freezer Services. “We look forward to offering our Preferred Services to customers that will be able to take advantage of this great location.”
