Interstate Warehousing, one of the largest refrigerated warehouse companies in the world, held a groundbreaking ceremony in Kingman, Arizona, announcing that its network of facilities is growing again. Construction will begin soon on the newest IWI facility on a 92-acre site in Kingman.
“Over the years, we have had several customers express an interest in having Interstate Warehousing provide a West Coast alternative to meet cold storage needs, and Kingman, Arizona has proved to be a perfect location for IWI,” said John Tippmann, Jr., President of Interstate Warehousing / Tippmann Group. “This strategic location provides excellent access to several major markets like Las Vegas, Phoenix and Los Angeles, while opening the door to new opportunities for our customers with operations out West.”
The first phase of IWI Kingman will be a 273,000-square-foot freezer facility with a 55-foot clear ceiling. The facility is projected to create 70 jobs and will be home to more than 30,000 pallet positions and will feature turret trucks running in very narrow aisles in order to maximize storage space. A modern two-story office will greet visitors to the facility upon arrival, and 43 dock doors will serve the truck drivers who are picking up from or delivering to the warehouse.
“Interstate Warehousing’s state-of-the-art cold storage facility showcases Arizona’s attractiveness as a premier logistics hub,” said Sandra Watson, President and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority. “With Kingman’s strategic location and skilled workforce, Interstate Warehousing’s new facility will diversify Mohave County’s distribution and logistics landscape while bringing quality jobs to the area.”
Master site planning is in place for future expansion up to 1.2 million square feet at the facility as additional customer needs arise.
Interstate Warehousing is the 4th largest public refrigerated warehouse company in the United States, owning and operating more than 115 million cubic feet of refrigerated and frozen warehouse space nationwide.
Design/build construction of the project is being handled by Tippmann Construction, a sister company to Interstate Warehousing. Both are part of the Tippmann Group family of companies based in Fort Wayne, IN. The facility is projected to be completed and operational by 4th Quarter 2023.
