A New Jersey refrigeration company is expanding its presence in McDonough with a new facility and the addition of 80 jobs.

United States Cold Storage plans to build a 6.7-million-cubic-foot refrigerated warehouse near Interstate 75 this fall. The facility joins an 8.6-million-cubic foot refrigerated warehouse the Voorhees, N.J., company already operates in the area. 

“Market interest in our first facility in McDonough was incredible,” David Butterfield, the company’s vice president for the midwest region, said in a release Tuesday. “Our capacity was quickly filled and the demand continues.”

The planned warehouse will handle refrigerated and frozen products and will have as many as 25 dock doors and five railcar doors from which to distribute its cargo.

U.S. Cold Storage serves metro Atlanta as well as regional distribution throughout the southeast. The company said it owns another 43 acres and that it could develop the property as an automated warehouse.
