A Siouxland refrigerated warehouse company has merged with another company to expand their combined service area.
Cloverleaf Cold Storage, whose corporate offices are located in Sioux City, announced that they completed the transaction with Zero Mountain, Inc. which has now merged into Cloverleaf, according to a release from Cloverleaf.
They said that they are now the fourth largest cold storage warehouse in the US with 140 million cubic feet of capacity in nine states.
Cloverleaf has 19 warehouses across the Midwest and Southeast United States, including in Sioux City, Le Mars and Cherokee. There were founded in 1952 by the Kaplan and Feiges families. Zero Mountain has five cold storage warehouses and expansions are underway in Arkansas and Texas.
“I am so pleased with the teams in Iowa and Arkansas for working through the complex process of merging. They did it in under 60 days which speaks well of the administration and organization of both companies,” said Co-CEO Bill Feiges.
The combined companies now say they will work to grow as facilities in Chesapeake, Virginia and North Little Rock, Arkansas already have broken ground and a new facility in Waco, Texas id in the design phase.
