Congebec expanding GTA footprint

by Inside Logistics Online Staff

Congebec Inc. is nearly doubling the size of its temperature controlled storage facility in Mississauga, Ontario. The facility will grow from 170,000 sq. ft. to 232,600 sq. ft., and increase storage capacity by 12,000 pallets.

To further assist in saving energy and reducing power usage, this facility will be equipped with power conditioning, an electric energy saving system to filter and optimize power quality and maximize energy savings. This will allow the facility to avoid blackouts and will provide Congebec with a more reliable operation.

The freezer/cooler design will include an efficient building envelop that reduces heat islands with its unique white roof.

Additionally, a dehumidification system will be installed for the office space. A green space will be built following the construction of the expansion to help balance its carbon footprint and reverse construction emissions.

“We aim to continue our mission to connect food to the world by working to feature innovative and energy efficient operations in our facilities, therefore aligning with our values and our sustainable development initiatives,” said Nicholas Pedneault, president and CEO of Congebec.

“Our modern construction in Toronto will ensure high-quality and safe food products to our customers and to consumers,”
