In mid- August 2018, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam announced construction of a new cold storage facility located in the Harrisonburg/ Mt Crawford area in Virginia. InterChange Group, INC has undertaken this project which will greatly serve the needs of the region’s growing industry. The cold storage facility is located on Interstate 81, a primary trucking route along the East Coast.
Construction has begun on phase 1 of the project with the potential to grow in phases to 600,000 sq./ft and over 80,000 pallet positions in multiple rooms with temperatures ranging from -10F up to 34F. Approximately 16,000 sq./ft should be on line by the second quarter of 2019. Phase two of construction will follow shortly after based on heavy interest in the new facility. The availability of the new cold storage facility will allow products to be stored locally, boosting the regional economy. Please refer to www.interchangeco.com for additional information.
