Cold-Link Logistics broke ground on a $64 million corporate investment in Jones County Thursday afternoon.

The company’s new investment in the Magnolia State will create 84 jobs, according to Governor Tate Reeves.

Cold-Link Logistics — which specializes in cold storage warehousing — has five locations throughout the southeastern portion of the United States, including Auburndale, Fla., Holland, Mich., Orlando, Fla., Providence, R.I., and Sioux City, Iowa.

“We are very excited to bring a first-class cold storage facility to the great State of Mississippi. We recognized a great opportunity to support several current and new customers throughout the state and Southeast,” Cold-Link Logistics President and Founder Michael Mandich said. “We consistently heard from the area’s producers that they needed a facility to help support their growth, and we were thrilled with the opportunity to serve the community.”

The 200,000-square-foot cold storage warehouse and transportation hub will be located on a 65-acre site near Ellisville.

Cold-Link will also be partnering with Mississippi-based Whitestone Transportation of Moselle to provide integrated warehousing and transportation services to local and regional food processors and distributors.

“Partnering with Whitestone Transportation is such a blessing, and we envision this further supporting the area’s producers,” Mandich added. “This facility will provide a link for our customers to save money and reach their customers in a more efficient manner.”

The Mississippi Development Authority is providing assistance for infrastructure needs. The city of Ellisville and Jones County will also assist with the project.

“Cold-Link Logistics’ new facility in Jones County will bring good-paying jobs and new opportunities for Mississippians,” Governor Tate Reeves remarked. “Their partnership with the Mississippi company Whitestone Transportation will strengthen our state’s supply chain and provide enhanced speed to market for food processors and distributors.”
