Kenco to Construct New Warehouse Facility in Michigan
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.—Aug. 5, 2015, Kenco plans to break ground on a new warehouse facility in Zeeland, Michigan to serve long-time customer Mead Johnson Nutrition.
The project includes a 230,000-square-foot warehouse with 28 loading docks and 150 truck trailer parking spots. It will replace another nearby facility that Kenco has outgrown. Kenco teamed with CBRE | Grand Rapids on site selection and contract negotiations for the new facility.
Scannell Properties was selected to develop the new warehouse. Construction could start as early as September and be completed by spring of 2016.
Kenco will use the new facility to handle distribution of the Mead Johnson Nutrition product line, including specialty formulas for infants. In addition to warehousing, Kenco will carry out order fulfillment, reverse logistics, raw materials management, kitting, packaging, labeling, and transportation.
Kenco is headquartered in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and has more than 90 warehouse facilities spread across the U.S. and Canada.
