United States Cold Storage


Project Details

After successfully completing Phase III of United States Cold Storage’s Hazleton, Pennsylvania cold storage building expansion, Primus was selected to continue the momentum by providing design-build services for the company’s Phase IV expansion.

Phase III featured four new dock doors on the opposite side of the Phase IV site and was completed on time despite being constructed during the winter months (December through March).

Phase IV was constructed on a fast-track schedule and provided 10,000 more pallet positions.

Additional features include:

  • Extending the connecting corridor and rail dock
  • Larger truck parking lot
  • New, second entrance to the site
  • LED lighting
  • Dock doors that allow delivery truck doors to open directly into the building

The Hazleton, Pennsylvania cold storage building is located near I-80, making it a convenient location for Philadelphia and New York. The current facility is 9.2 million cubic feet and provides 34,110 pallet positions with freezers ranging from -20°F to +55°F. There are 36 dock doors and 5 railcar doors with service provided by Norfolk Southern.
