Leading supply chain solutions provider, NFI, will break ground Tuesday for a build-to-suit facility for leading premium food manufacturer and distributor, Chelten House, in Logan Township, New Jersey. NFI is developing the 209,437 square foot facility where Chelten House will establish its new corporate office and industrial operations facility with future expansion opportunities that could bring the facility to over 400,000 square feet.
“NFI is excited to team up with Chelten House to provide a unique, world-class facility here in South Jersey,” says Jeff Brown, NFI Vice Chairman and President. “As an end-to-end supply chain solutions provider we understand the unique needs of our customers like Chelten House and utilize our expertise to build a facility to meet both their current and future needs.”
The strategic location of the new facility in Logan Township, New Jersey places Chelten House along a corridor to major highways with easy access to the New Jersey Turnpike, Route 295, Interstate 95, and the Pennsylvania Turnpike. The facility is also unique with development plans including a rail loading dock to ensure the seamless transfer of goods across multiple modes of transportation.
“All of us here at Chelten House are eager to expand our strong roots in South Jersey,” said Steve Dabrow, Chelten House Owner and CEO. “We look forward to working with NFI on this project and further strengthening our partnership as we continue to grow.”
