Cloverleaf Cold Storage plans new facility in Illinois

FBR Staff Writer Published 19 May 2014

Cloverleaf Cold Storage Company, a storage provider for the meat processing and packaging industries, will open a new $30m refrigerated warehouse and distribution center in Monmouth, Illinois.

The 235,000ft² center, which marks the Coverleaf's first Illinois site, will serve the Smithfield Farmland Corporation. Coverleaf already has 15 locations across the US.

Speaking about the new facility, Governor Pat Quinn said this new facility will create more than 150 good jobs and help Cloverleaf and Smithfield Farmland grow together in western Illinois.

"The cooperative effort between state agencies and local officials to build this remarkable facility shows that even in our Prairie State, we'll move mountains when it comes to creating jobs," Quinn noted.

Cloverleaf spokesman Adam Feiges said, "Cloverleaf's investment in this new facility highlights not only the strategic location that Illinois occupies in the food distribution network, it emphasizes our faith that we will be able to hire and retain a highly-skilled and technically proficient workforce."
