Lineage Logistics – Stevens Point, WI – Phase 1

Service Cold Storage (now Lineage Logistics) was established in Stevens Point, Wisconsin by Service Trans Inc., an asset-free trucking company. Through their trucking customer base, they found a need among those customers for a cold storage facility to primarily hold agricultural and dairy products in Central Wisconsin, leading to the founding of this new public cold storage company.

Tippmann Group realized that timing and quality were key considerations on this project, so Service Cold Storage could bring product in from the summer agricultural harvest as soon as possible. The facility was designed and built with cooler and freezer flexibility, getting the job done in just 8 months through a record cold winter, including the deepest ground freeze ever recorded in Stevens Point, Wisconsin.

“Tippmann was wonderful to work with as a major contractor,” said Andrew Halverson, Mayor of Stevens Point. “Their expertise and professionalism in the field of large scale frozen warehousing was key in providing a seamless process for the City and Service Cold Storage right up to the ribbon cutting, during one of the worst winters for construction in the last 40 years.”

“Despite all of the setbacks caused by the severe winter, the building was completed ahead of schedule,” said Milt Austin, CEO of Service Cold Storage. “I don’t think there is another contractor (on any project), that was building in Wisconsin at the time, who can say that.”

Facility Highlights:

  • 157,000 square foot distribution facility
  • Multiple temperature areas for both frozen and refrigerated products
  • Energy efficient facility featuring LED lighting
  • Project completed ahead of schedule through worst winter conditions in 40 years in Wisconsin
