Wholesaler Nash Finch Co. completed the expansion of its Lima, Ohio distribution center that effectively doubles its current freezer capacity.
"This important investment positions us to better serve existing customers while at the same time providing needed capacity to add additional ones,” said Alec Covington, Nash Finch president and CEO.
The expansion of the Lima facility, which began with a ground breaking in August of 2009 and construction was completed in April of 2010, enables the Minneapolis-based Nash Finch to triple the amount of frozen volume shipped from Lima.
Coinciding with the opening of the new facility, Nash Finch closed its Bridgeport, Mich. distribution center, which it has operated since 1996. The company expects to completely exit the facility by late September. All customers currently supplied by the Bridgeport facility will be transitioned to Nash Finch's Lima distribution center.
Nash Finch’s core business, food distribution, serves independent retailers and military commissaries in 36 states, the District of Columbia, Europe, Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Azores and Egypt. The Company also owns and operates a base of retail stores, primarily supermarkets under the Econofoods, Family Thrift Center, Avanza, and Sun Mart banners.
