Tour Location Facility:

In response to high customer demand for additional warehouse space, Innovative Cold Storage Enterprises has built a 125,000 square foot (7,500,000 cubic foot) state of the art expansion located about two miles south of their original cold storage facility. This new, environmentally green building, adds 29,000 pallet positions to their existing 11,000 space capacity. Innovative Cold offers a computerized climate-controlled refrigeration system, blast freezing capabilities, railcar loading and cross docking, and the new facility also has a state of the art radio frequency inventory maintenance system.

Since they began operating, ICE's Sunpower solar panel system has produced 3,422,739 kWh, or 120% of the total predicted energy for all months of operation. Cumulatively since system operation began, renewable energy production helped avoid the release of 1816 tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, the equivalent of 512 acres of forest saved, or of not driving 4,539,963 miles.
