FORT WAYNE, Ind., Aug. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- When faced with the challenge of the sourcing a specialty cooling contractor to design and develop their new cold storage food warehouse, Cavalier Produce, of Virginia, crossed several state lines and selected Tippmann Innovation (TI) of Fort Wayne, IN. Just six months after TI broke ground, Cavalier Produce conducted a ribbon cutting conducted in July 2016, at their new, state of the art freezer/cooler facility, located in the Ferncliff Business Park, in Louisa County, near Charlottesville, Virginia.
Cavalier Produce had outgrown their existing leased facilities, and began a two-year search, in 2013, for a site for a building that would allow for growth as their business needs increased. The project demanded a sensitivity not only to the construction process, but also their business model. The design of the building itself would steer business operations for years to come. The building was an integral part of their business plan, and not something that could be addressed through a traditional general contractor's construction approach.
"Tippmann Innovation travels and builds the finest cold storage facilities in the country. Not until we were in the thick of it did we actually appreciate the expertise that it takes to build this type of facility. It's beyond the scope of most general contractors,"says Denise Yetzer, president of Cavalier Produce.
Tippmann Innovation designed a building specifically for Cavalier's needs: 40-foot clear with ample pallet storage. The building's internal configuration is optimized for the existing business and planned growth.
"This project demonstrates the premium that is placed on experience and guidance within the cold storage industry. We appreciate every opportunity to help our customers grow their businesses by leveraging our expertise," says Rob Adams, principal, Tippmann Innovation.
