Kennett Square-Based Manfredi Cold Storage Continues Expansion into New Jersey

The recession chilled its vision for expansion, but now Kennett Square’s Manfredi Cold Storage is ready to build even bigger in New Jersey. Image via Manfredi Cold Storage.

Frank Manfredi Sr. was ahead of his time when he purchased New Jersey industrial land for an expansion in 2008, and the economy has finally caught up to his vision.

Manfredi Cold Storage is finishing off an addition in Kennett Square and about to break ground in Pedricktown, N.J., according to a report in The Produce News by Tad Thompson.

The demand for Manfredi to open up the distribution center and cold storage site across the Delaware River comes primarily from fruit importers but is growing from transportation-strained retailers, the article explained.

“We also want to market to retailers who have transportation costs as their biggest problem,” Manfredi said.

Plans for the new site call for a 600,000-square-foot facility, and if those plans go according to schedule, a groundbreaking will arrive late this fall, with construction next spring.
