Boosting storage capacity at the site to 225,000 pallets
NewCold is investing A$147.0 million to expand its Asia Pacific headquarters in Melbourne’s west and bolster Victoria’s food storage capacity, with critical support provided by the Victorian Government.
Minister for Industry Support and Recovery Martin Pakula announced that NewCold Australia would more than double the size of its state-of-the-art cold storage facility in Truganina, boosting storage capacity at the site to 225,000 pallets and creating up to 50 new jobs. Some 200 jobs will be created during construction.
Stage one of the upgrade is underway and will expand NewCold’s multi-temperature and freezer warehouse with advanced features to store chilled and frozen goods. Already boasting one of the world’s largest automated high-bay warehouses, the western suburbs facility will use the latest energy-efficient storage, cooling and distribution technology to automatically move and store products and ensure they are kept in optimal conditions.
The expanded facility, scheduled to be operational in 2022, will provide innovative storage solutions to NewCold’s global food supply chain customers including Simplot, which supplies products to Australia’s leading supermarkets.
