United States Cold Storage (USCS), one of the nation’s premier public refrigerated warehouse companies, today officially celebrated the opening of its new facility in CAN DO’s Humboldt Industrial Park, Hazle Township.
Mericle Commercial Real Estate, Wilkes-Barre, PA, continues to show its commitment to Humboldt Industrial Park with a new development project.
Mericle has begun construction of a 410,000 SF building, expandable to 623,000 SF, on more than 41 acres at Site 2 on North Park Drive in Humboldt Industrial Park North.
Despite recent growth, companies are finding the Greater Hazleton area still has an abundance of workers available.
In fact, prior to the November opening of Chicago-based Gonnella Frozen Products’ new Humboldt North facility, the company received many more applicants than positions they had available.
Company President Ken Gonnella said he was “exceptionally pleased” with the number and quality of applicants.
One of the premier public refrigerated warehouse companies in the United States is coming to Greater Hazleton.
U.S. Cold Storage (USCS) is in the process of building a new 5.7 million cubic foot (roughly 180,000 SF) distribution facility in Humboldt Industrial Park North.
LEED certification, tax incentives, a large available workforce, and access to more than half the country’s population are awaiting at 40 Azalea Drive in the CAN DO Corporate Center, Drums, PA.
This two-story dedicated office building was built to accommodate up to four tenants, but with the design flexibility to suit one large tenant. With 51,560 SF of Class “A” office space available, the property is perfectly suited for companies seeking backoffice operations in the financial and insurance industries, call centers and customer service centers.
