Sysco Expanding Atlanta Facility

Sysco Corp. has broken ground on an expansion of its distribution facility in Atlanta. The company intends to add a 100,000-square-foot section with freezer space, cold dock space and a vehicle maintenance facility to the existing 562,000-square-foot building.

Sustainability initiatives include an ammonia refrigeration system; truck-wash water recycling system; LED lighting in the freezer and cooler expansion areas; and a rapid-charge battery charging station.

“Sysco is excited about the growth of our Atlanta business and the expansion of our facility in Fulton County,” Greg Bertrand, senior vice president of U.S. foodservice operations for Sysco, said in a statement. “We have been an active member of the community for over 45 years and are happy to reiterate our commitment with this project. In addition, we look forward to continuing to serve our customers with the increased capabilities our expanded facility will bring.”

The project is expected to wrap up in 20 months.
