US Foods plans to open a distribution center in Seabrook NH to better serve its customers throughout New England.
The company currently services this customer base from its facility in Peabody MA. While the Peabody facility is approximately 188,000 square feet, the new facility will offer more than 500,000 square feet of space, including additional dry and cold storage and fleet fueling and maintenance areas.
“This new building will allow us to better serve our more than 2,000 customers throughout New England and operate from a more efficient and modern facility, which will benefit the company, its customers, and the nearly 300 employees in the Boston Division,” said John Glynn, president, Boston Division, US Foods.
The company has partnered with the ESI Group to execute the renovation of the new facility to ensure it operates as efficiently as possible. Construction is expected to begin at the end of June, and the company aims to move its operations into the new building in the first quarter of 2015.
“I want to thank Seabrook Town Manager Bill Manzi and his staff, as well as Michael Bergeron from the state of New Hampshire for welcoming US Foods to Seabrook,” said Sandy Raine, vice-president of corporate real estate, US Foods. “Working with this group has been a pleasure and has reaffirmed how proud we are to be joining this business community.”
US Foods employs approximately 25,000 people in more than 60 locations nationwide. Headquartered in Rosemont IL, it is jointly owned by affiliates of Clayton, Dubilier & Rice LLC and Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co LP.
