[ARCHIVED] ARYZTA Celebrates Opening of Distribution Center


ARYZTA®, the third largest global baking company, held a ribbon cutting ceremony on Nov. 30th to commemorate the grand opening of its distribution center in Romeoville. The 193,000 sq. ft. facility adds to ARYZTA’s presence in Romeoville, where one of the company’s bakeries is located.

Members of the Romeoville community and Chicagoland area were in attendance during the ribbon cutting ceremony. The state-of-the-art facility specializes in cold storage and will store foods that are made at ARYZTA’s Chicagoland area bakeries. It features innovative technologies such as hydrogen-fueled material handling equipment, LED lighting and a high efficiency Ammonia refrigeration system.

“This new facility is a great addition to Romeoville and it reflects our enthusiasm for a continued presence in this community,” said Andrew Brimacombe, President, ARYZTA US Consumer Foods. “The cold storage solutions that this distribution center provides will help us continue to meet the needs of our customers.”

ARYZTA worked with Meridian Design Build, WBS Equities and the City of Romeoville on the construction, development and completion of this facility. Meridian Design Build acted as the design build general contractor for the project and WBS Equities, LLC acted as development manager and assisted in preliminary project planning, entitlements, and site acquisition. Architectural and structural design services were provided by Ware Malcomb and civil engineering work was completed by Jacob & Hefner Associates.

“ARYZTA provides quality jobs to our community and they have been an important part of our business community,” said Romeoville Mayor John Noak. “We are excited to partner with ARYZTA on their expansion.”
