Midwest Refrigerated Services to consolidate Pleasant Prairie operations in new building

Midwest Refrigerated Services, a frozen and refrigerated logistics and distribution services company serving the food industry, plans to consolidate its Pleasant Prairie operations into a new facility.

The company currently operates two distribution centers in Pleasant Prairie through a subsidiary, Prairieview Distribution Services LLC. It plans to consolidate operations from those facilities and from a facility in Illinois into a 411,000-square-foot facility that is currently under construction at 11681 88th Ave. in Pleasant Prairie. The company plans to occupy the facility in September.

The building was being built on speculation by a joint venture of Oak Brook, Ill.-based CenterPoint Properties and Milwaukee-based Wispark LLC. The joint venture was also building a 521,052-square-foot spec building at the site, which will be occupied by Uline.

The Midwest Refrigerated Services building will be used to warehouse bottled beverages, canned cranberry sauce and jelly manufactured by a local food processing company in Kenosha, with additional space available for other food processing customers.

The company will move 60 employees to the building and plans to hire an additional five employees.

Midwest Refrigerated Services currently occupies space at the northwest corner of 88th Avenue and 113th Street in Pleasant Prairie and in the Jelly Belly warehouse building at 10100 Jelly Belly Lane.
