Governor Kathy Hochul today announced that Americold has completed construction of a 181,000-square-foot cold storage distribution facility on approximately 28 acres in the Town of Dunkirk in Chautauqua County. The $41 million project will create 60 new jobs, in addition to the 250 construction jobs created to build the facility, which will provide much-needed cold storage for the food supply chain in the area.
“New York State is pleased to support Americold’s growth and advance economic recovery efforts in Western New York’s vital food manufacturing sector,” Governor Hochul said. “The food and beverage industry will continue to play a major role in lifting our state’s economy, and through innovation, coordination, and responsiveness to consumer demands, New York businesses like Americold will help to ensure that we continue to lead the nation in shipping and storage.”
The food and beverage industry is a significant and stable contributor to the US economy; it plays a leading role as an employer in many regional economies. The industry’s efficiency, continuous innovation over time, and response to changing consumer demand has helped to ensure the affordability and quality of the US food supply, as well as the competitiveness of US food exports. Americold’s project is an example of how the primary economic activity of food manufacturing creates value added secondary impacts with its needs for storage and shipping – reverberating through the local and regional economies, creating additional income and employment for businesses.
