SANTA TERESA, N.M. (AP) — Gov. Susana Martinez says New Mexico has beaten out Texas for the expansion of a homegrown warehouse and distribution company.
Valley Cold Storage and Transportation ships goods in New Mexico and Texas.
The Las Cruces-based company plans to invest $14 million to build a new 105,000 square-foot facility and create up to 33 jobs in Santa Teresa, tripling its current workforce.
The new facility will be the third major expansion in Santa Theresa’s 166-acre Westpark Logistics Center in the last six months.
Westpark is the first new industrial park to be built in Santa Teresa in the last 15 years.
Valley Cold Storage and Transportation offers state-of-the-art refrigeration and transportation services to the retail, food service, food distribution and agriculture industries of southern New Mexico and western Texas.
