The company’s new semi-automated freezer buildings will be located in Bartow and Hall counties and create approximately 170 jobs between the Cartersville and Gainesville facilities.

In Cartersville, Agile Cold Storage plans to build and own a 150,000-square-foot facility at Hamilton Crossing Road, where the company plans to create about 70 positions.

The company also plans to build and own a 150,000-square-foot facility in Gainesville, located at 3117 Athens Highway, where they plan to create approximately 100 positions.

Positions at both the Cartersville and Gainesville facilities will include warehouse management, administration, clerical, forklift operators, maintenance, and other general warehouse positions. Additional information will be posted on the company’s website at agilecoldstorage.com closer to the facilities’ opening dates next summer.

Agile’s state-of-the-art facility will use automation where possible to make the work environment safer and more efficient for its team members. The company’s advanced technologies reduce its environmental impact by eliminating ammonia refrigerants and decreasing energy and water consumption.

Agile’s experienced management team and best practices will allow for reliable, efficient, and flexible receiving, storage, and shipping of its customers’ products. Agile’s customers’ products will satisfy demand for both the domestic and international markets.

The facilities include frozen and deep freeze temperature zones to ensure products are blast frozen and maintained at the highest levels of quality in accordance with industry specifications and government regulations.

The state’s major cold storage investment and growth, combined with the extensive air, rail, port, and interstate logistics network continues to provide a competitive advantage for companies located in Georgia.
