Temperature-controlled warehousing and logistics company Lineage Logistics LLC plans to expand two existing facilities in the Dallas-Fort Worth TX area as well as the completed acquisitions of two buildings—one in Phoenix AZ and one in Bethlehem PA.
These expansions, in tandem with the acquired buildings, add 21 million cubic feet of refrigerated warehousing space to Lineage’s nationwide facility network and represent a transformative next step in the company’s warehouse automation strategy.
Lineage expects to break ground at its cold storage distribution center in Fort Worth in the coming months, with plans to open the expansion in October. The facility at 5200 Gold Spike Drive will increase its total capacity to 23.9 million cubic feet with more than 54,000 pallet positions to house frozen and refrigerated product.
Expansion of Lineage’s Sunnyvale facility, located at 367 Long Creek Road, is planned to be a rack-supported, fully automated building featuring a 75-foot-plus clear height and the latest in automated technology. The automated addition will be designed to provide more than 7 million cubic feet of frozen and refrigerated space, with more than 19,000 pallet positions to support fast-moving distribution product.
The Dallas-Fort Worth expansion projects are announced on the heels of Lineage’s acquisition of two cold storage distribution centers in other key markets in the United States, including a 200,000-sq-ft building in Phoenix, as well as a 265,000-sq-ft cold storage facility in Bethlehem near Lineage’s Allentown PA distribution center.
Lineage is backed by San Francisco CA-based Bay Grove Capital LLC, a principal investment firm that partners with strong management teams to invest in and build long-term platform investments. Over the past eight years, Bay Grove has built Lineage through acquisitions and investments completed in partnership with entrepreneurs, managers and employees.
