Cold storage contractor Tippmann Innovation has announced it has started the construction of a 00F freezer warehouse for Table Talk Pies, a manufacturer of snack pies and desserts.
The new cold storage facility sits adjacent to Table Talk’s 150,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility, thus enabling the company to streamline its production and distribution operations. The manufacturing facility is now able to produce at full capacity and store the finished products on site. Table Talk Pies produces over 4 million snack pies and 600,000 traditional pies per week, noted the press release.
At the same time, Tippmann Innovations has also been working on a project for Win Chill Cold Storage, which has recently culminated with the completion of the second phase of a 330,000 square foot cold storage distribution in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The scheme has brought 100 new jobs to the area.
According to Tippmann, this particular cold storage is quite unique given that it features freezers with temperatures from 00F to -200F hold over 54,500 pallet positions, storing frozen protein products and serving food manufacturers in a 200-mile radius.
“The first 205,000 square foot warehouse was only open for a year and our customers approached us needing more space. For phase two we added an additional 125,000 square feet of freezer storage,” said Jeff Davis, president at Win Chill Cold Storage.
In the expanded facility, Tippmann installed 812 pallets of QuickFreeze In-Rack Freezing System.
“Adding QF+ to our facility gives us a huge advantage. It cuts down our freeze time by 25%-30% in a lot of cases, depending on the product,” Davis went on.
Tippmann Innovation was the contractor for the initial project, so with the staff and construction teams already in place, the firm was able to seamlessly transition to build the expansion without disrupting existing operations.
