ROMEOVILLE, ILL. — Aryzta AG late last month held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to commemorate the grand opening of its 193,000-square-foot distribution center located in Romeoville.

The facility specializes in cold storage and will store foods that are made at Aryzta’s Chicagoland area bakeries. It features innovative technologies such as hydrogen-fueled material handling equipment, LED lighting and a high efficiency ammonia refrigeration system, Aryzta said.

“This new facility is a great addition to Romeoville, and it reflects our enthusiasm for a continued presence in this community,” said Andrew Brimacombe, president of Aryzta U.S. Consumer Foods. “The cold storage solutions that this distribution center provides will help us continue to meet the needs of our customers.”

Aryzta partnered with Meridian Design Build, WBS Equities and the City of Romeoville on the construction, development and completion of the facility. Meridian Design Build acted as the design build general contractor for the project and WBS Equities was development manager and assisted in preliminary project planning, entitlements, and site acquisition. Architectural and structural design services were provided by Ware Malcomb, and civil engineering work was completed by Jacob & Hefner Associates.
