Interstate Warehousing has broken ground on a new facility in Kingman, Ariz. The facility will include more than 30,000 pallet positions and will feature turret trucks, running in very narrow aisles, to maximize storage space. A modern two-story office will greet visitors to the facility upon arrival, while 43 dock doors will serve the truck drivers who are picking up from or delivering to the warehouse.

The first phase of the IWI Kingman site will be a 273,000-sq-ft freezer facility with a 55-ft clear ceiling. Master site planning is in place for future expansion up to 1.2 million sq ft at the facility as additional customer needs arise.

Construction is scheduled to begin soon, with the facility expected to be complete and operational by the fourth quarter of next year. Design/build of the project will be handled by Tippmann Construction, a sister company to Interstate Warehousing.

“Over the years, we have had several customers express an interest in having Interstate Warehousing provide a West Coast alternative to meet cold storage needs, and Kingman, Ariz., has proved to be a perfect location for IWI,” says John Tippmann, Jr., president of Interstate Warehousing/Tippmann Group. “This strategic location provides excellent access to several major markets like Las Vegas, Phoenix, and Los Angeles, while opening the door to new opportunities for our customers with operations out West.”

Interstate Warehousing is the fourth-largest public refrigerated warehouse company in the U.S., owning and operating more than 115 million cu ft of refrigerated and frozen space nationwide.
