The facility will be built on 33 acres on Kapkowski Boulevard.
“We are excited to have found this location and developer, Prologis, following a wide-ranging search. Our new location offers a fantastic location with highway access and a strong civic community with leadership that is invested in the long-term success of their city,” said Jeffrey Altschuler, Allied Beverage Group CEO and president. “We look forward to joining the Elizabeth community and are confident in Prologis’ capabilities and talent to bring our vision to life on a larger scale.”
Plans for the distribution center include a 90,000-square-foot office, training space and conference space. The facility, according to Allied, will support its marketing and training capabilities.
Warehouse operations are expected to transition in the first half of 2019 with the entire facility being operational by summer 2019, Prologis said.
“Our team has been focused on designing a facility that incorporates innovative systems and technology that will drive industry-leading customer service, quality, operational efficiencies and environmental stewardship,” said Art Wirtz, executive vice president of operations for Breakthru Beverage Group, who recently merged its New Jersey operations with Allied.
