Tyson’s Macon, GA distribution center serves retail and foodservice customers in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida and Alabama. Tyson chose to expand the facility so that it could ship all of its products from one distribution center. In addition to increasing efficiency, the project also improves team member safety and reduces their carbon footprint.
Tyson selected Primus to provide turn-key design and construction services for the 184,000 SF facility addition. Features include expanded cold storage building spaces, break room, driver room, material handling, and dock and freezer expansions.
The 108,000 SF, 120’ tall, -10° freezer features a rack supported ASRS, including 8 cranes and a 64,000 SF conventional freezer.
