Arcadia Cold Breaks Ground on New Facility Network

[ July 21, 2022   //   ]

Arcadia Cold recently joined local Burleson officials and Saxum Real Estate to celebrate the groundbreaking for their Burleson Cold Storage site. The site is located just outside Fort Worth. The event was hosted by the project general contractor, Primus Builders.
This event marks Arcadia’s first groundbreaking of their national cold storage platform to be developed in strategic markets across the United States. Arcadia’s entrance to the market comes with over 120 years of cold storage industry experience across their leadership team. The site is slated to be delivered in Q2 2023.
“Arcadia was thrilled to welcome members of Burleson’s community to the groundbreaking ceremony,” said Arcadia Cold CEO Chris Hughes. “While this project benefits from its strategic location in the greater Dallas/Fort-Worth market, the city and county officials in Burleson have been instrumental in bringing this project to fruition. At every stage of the project development, The City of Burleson and Burleson City Economic Development has been a valued partner and we look forward to bringing significant economic growth and jobs to the City of Burleson.”
Once complete, the Burleson location will be a frozen and refrigerated distribution center facility with 43,000 pallet positions designed to support high-volume throughput handling services, including full pallet management and case picking. The site has immediate access to US Interstate 35W in the center of the Dallas/Ft. Worth distribution market.
