In the 1980’s FW Warehousing (known then as Fresh Warehouse) was a major player in the cold and frozen warehousing industry in the Midwest. Since that time, FW Warehousing has grown to more 4-million square feet of ambient, dry, and conditioned space for industrial, food grade, and chemical/hazardous material storage but strayed from cold and frozen storage all together.
Fast forward to 2015 and, as is often the case, history repeated itself. In 2014 with the acquisition of the former Hostess Twinkies factory came a small cooler/freezer. It was a start. Soon thereafter FW added a cooler to the FW Winnebago warehouse, the one that was formerly the Federal Records Building. In 2015 FW added a 95,000 square foot cooler/freezer/ambient warehouse in Troy, Illinois and the plans to expand in to the cold and frozen market will continue in 2016 and beyond.
If any company has a need for cold or frozen storage in the Midwest, their prayers may have been answered. With frozen pallet storage starting under $9/a pallet and refrigerated pallet storage starting in the $5’s, FW Warehousing is primed to become a leader in both the cold and frozen warehousing business…not somewhere down the road, but right now!
What about conditioned warehouse space? Try under 60-degrees at no extra charge. That’s right! Look for 2016 to bring conditioned warehouse space guaranteed not to exceed 58-degrees starting in the $4’s per pallet. All with the same ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 certified and trained staff and the best IT team in the Midwest.
FW Warehousing has demonstrated amazing growth while continuing to improve service, staff, and facilities across its three Midwest markets: St. Louis, Kansas City and Indianapolis. The warehouse footprint of FW Warehousing has nearly doubled in the past three years and there is no reason to expect things to slow down any time soon.
