The new expansion project has created 40 jobs and extended the refrigerated warehouse’s area to 6,300m2. 

American multinational Americold has invested 13 million euros in expanding its refrigerated warehouse for the Food sector in Barcelona, which opened in 2008. 

This investment project has had the support of Catalonia Trade & Investment, the Catalan Government’s agency for business competitiveness, under the framework of the aid program for High-Impact Business Investments in Catalonia. The company received a €200,000 grant.

The new facilities, located in Santa Perpètua de Mogoda (Barcelona), will allow the American company to add four new frozen chambers, a new chilled chamber, 11 loading docks, and a capacity for 12,000 pallets for food product storage that require controlled temperature (frozen, refrigerated, and at room temperature). The facilities can handle up to 20,000 pallets and include areas for preparing orders and their subsequent transport and office space to serve customers from all over Europe. With this expansion, Americold has a total of 55 people working in its Barcelona refrigerated warehouse.

Headquartered in Atlanta, Americold has a global workforce of over 15,000 employees and 240 refrigerated warehouses worldwide. The company works for customers from the entire food sector value chain, connecting producers, processors, distributors, and retailers until reaching the final customer.
