Trucco Expands Distribution Center in New Jersey; Nick Pacia Comments
VINELAND, NJ - Exciting news is afoot for Trucco as it expands one of its distribution centers. The distributor recently received approval to add an additional 67,000 square feet to the facility, which is located in Vineland, New Jersey. Construction will be breaking ground soon and the expansion should be up and running by Q4 of 2023.
“We are proud to be investing in our operations here in Vineland, and we are excited to better serve our customers by expanding our packing and distribution capabilities,” Chief Executive Officer Nick Pacia said. “This expansion will not only benefit our company but will also contribute to the growth of the local economy.”
For the past five years, Trucco has been operating this sustainable, state-of-the-art facility for packing, storage, and distribution of its products, primarily kiwifruit, citrus, and blueberries.
As the company continues to grow, additional space is needed to meet increasing demand and to better serve customers. As a press release explained, the expansion will add approximately 15,000 square feet of production space and about 50,000 square feet of refrigeration to the existing facility.
Similar to the current facility, sustainability will be at the forefront of this project, which includes plans to outfit the center with solar panels and numerous energy-saving and water-reducing technologies. Trucco also prides itself on working with local farms to ensure organic waste produced by the facility is composted and has robust recycling programs in place. These programs will be scaled to support the expansion as well, the release went on to note.
Trucco’s dedication to its partners is reflected through this expansion, as it will allow the distributor to continue delivering a year-round supply of flavorful, nutritious products to its customers—large and small.
