CMC Design-Build has been selected by The Martin-Brower Company to provide complete design and construction services for a new distribution center to be located in Walker, LA. A division of Reyes Holdings, Martin Brower is McDonald’s largest distributor with 7,800 employees, delivering over 500 million cases of product to 15,000 restaurants each year. This will be the 2nd facility that CMC designs and constructs for Martin-Brower.
The new 142,000 square foot facility will replace an existing facility in Port Allen, LA to accommodate Martin-Brower’s continued growth in the region and includes freezer, cooler, and dry goods storage, a 315,000 cubic foot blast freezer, segregated shipping and receiving docks, and refrigerated rail docks. CMC is incorporating numerous design features into the facility to maximize energy efficiency including a state-of-the-art central ammonia refrigeration and control system to support the 3,125,000 cubic feet of freezer and cooler space, LED lighting, insulated high speed fork truck traffic doors, and vertical lift dock levelers.
CMC will also construct a separate facility on the site for maintenance, washing, and fueling of the Martin-Brower fleet.
