York Cold Storage expansion will create 10 cool jobs

LINCOLN, Neb. — York Cold Storage is set to expand with help from the Nebraska Department of Economic Development.

The department awarded the City of York $267,955 in Community Development Block Grant funding to assist York with an expansion of its operations. The project will create 10 full-time jobs in addition to maintaining its existing 65 full-time employees.

York is a bonded cold food storage warehousing facility that is rented out to customers and a food-processing facility in York. The company will use the funding to purchase and install new equipment, and update its cold storage facility. It is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Great West-Teeuwissen LLC, acquired in 2008.

“York Cold Storage has been a great corporate citizen for years, providing substantial jobs for many in the community,” said Gov. Pete Ricketts. “So we are pleased to be able to provide financial assistance that allows them to move toward accomplishing their notable growth and expansion goals.”
