Kehe Distributors to Expand Cold Storage
Kehe Distributors will add more U.S. warehouse space for its growing fresh and frozen product categories.
In addition, Kehe is implementing technology and infrastructure enhancements that will enable ongoing quality improvements in four of its distribution centers: Dallas; Romeoville, Ill.; and St. Augustine and Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
“Kehe will continue to prudently invest in infrastructure and technology that enable our teams across North America to deliver superior products and services,” said Kehe president and CEO Brandon Barnholt. “These investments align Kehe’s facility infrastructure with the company’s rapid growth.”
Kehe will double the size of its freezer and cooler space at its Dallas distribution center and quadruple its frozen foods capacity and double its cooler space in Fort Lauderdale. In Romeoville, Ill., Kehe will increase its non-ambient space by 30 percent, a move that will allow Kehe to expand its bulk foods and begin shipping this rapidly growing category of products.
The Romeoville, Ill.-based specialty food distributor provides natural, organic, gourmet, ethnic, multicultural and fresh food products to more than 33,000 retail stores in North America.
