In 1980, John Cusumano, decided to broaden the scope of FW Warehousing operations to include storing perishable inventory. Since then, FW Warehousing has continued to demonstrate its expertise in cold/frozen storage. Whether it involved handling, storing and distributing perishable food grade ingredients like hops or barley, FW hs been involved in many areas of the supply chain of cold/frozen product storage and distribution for years.
FW Warehousing continues to grow its cold/frozen division. The recent acquisition of the former Hostess factory in downtown St. Louis came complete with a large drive-in freezer and refrigerator, perfect for the storage of food grade and ingredient product lines.
FW Warehousing is headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri with Midwest warehouse distribution centers in Kansas City, Indianapolis and St. Louis totaling more than four million square feet. Founded in 1949 with a focus on food-grade storage, FW later broadened its services to include contract warehousing, dry storage, hazardous material and chemical storage, temperature-controlled storage, product distribution and B2B and B2C fulfillment.
