Nordic Cold Storage, an Atlanta GA-based provider of refrigerated supply chain services, announces the opening of its new Wilmington NC frozen distribution and import/export center. This facility will create 50 new jobs when fully staffed, and provide frozen distribution services for U.S. and international companies.
"The Wilmington Distribution Center expands our network and provides customers with needed capacity near the port. This is our sixth North Carolina facility, and we believe the state is good place to do business," said Don Schoenl, Nordic’s chief executive officer.
