Earlier this month, Lineage Logistics – the world’s largest temperature-controlled industrial REIT and logistics solutions provider – closed on a deal to acquire Vaudreuil-Dorion, Quebec-based Marc Villeneuve Inc.
Located in a suburb of Montreal, Marc Villeneuve Inc. is a cold storage distribution service that has distributed ice cream products for Canada’s oldest family-owned ice cream company, Chapman’s, since 1992.
The Montreal facility was built in 2000, and was expanded to double its storage capacity a few years later. Its energy efficient and environmentally friendly CO2-based refrigeration system, aligns with Lineage’s objectives of transforming the food supply chain while eliminating waste.
As a result of the acquisition, Lineage will now have a direct-to-store distribution service in Quebec and will add 6,800 additional pallet positions to its global footprint.
