MCCLELLAN, CA-Sacramento-based nut processing and marketing company Blue Diamond Growers has signed a long-term lease for an 80,000-square-foot cold storage facility at McClellan Park. Blue Diamond anticipates moving into the new warehouse space in June 2010.

The company was looking for possible locations near its Sacramento plant, according to Bruce Lish, Blue Diamond Growers general manager of industrial operations. Ken Giannotti, McClellan Park’s senior vice president of leasing, says that the business park is planning extensive interior and exterior renovations to accommodate Blue Diamond. The improvements will include renovating the offices and restrooms, adding new truck dock doors and, most importantly, upgrading the building’s cooling system to meet Blue Diamond’s specifications.

The rail-served industrial building, used as a supply house by the Air Force, was constructed with eight-inch-thick concrete walls and a four-inch-thick concrete ceiling, providing better insulation and significant energy savings. Located on Lang Avenue, the new facility provides accessibility to I-80, where future roadway improvements are planned at the Main Ave entrance to McClellan Park.
