Foodservice distributor IJ Company, Knoxville, TN, announced it will consolidate its Tallahassee division into its IJ Valdosta facility.
Over the last several years the IJ Tallahassee Division has continued to grow and now requires additional warehouse space," the company said in a release.
The change will allow the Southern Region, which includes IJ Tallahassee, IJ Valdosta and IJ Atlanta to continue its growth. "We are thrilled to have the opportunity to dramatically expand the available product offering to IJ's customers and enhance its competitive offering through realizing the synergies that a larger facility can achieve," said Barry Houghtalen, Senior Vice President, IJ Company Southern Region.
The target date for this consolidation is April 1, 2008.
IJ provides over 12,000 food service and related items including produce, dry and frozen groceries, boxed beef and other center-of-the-plate proteins, non-foods and disposables, equipment and supplies, beverages, and janitorial products to restaurants, institutions and other governmental organizations. The distribution area for the company covers more than 20 states in addition to export markets overseas.
