A demand in cold storage is prompting a St. Joseph business to expand.

Nor-Am Cold Storage purchased the former Affiliated Foods distribution center in Elwood, Kansas, on Monday.

“We are fortunate to be a part of a growing industry,” said Justin Brandt, general manager at Nor-Am in St. Joseph, Kansas City and now Elwood. “We’ll use this space to meet the demand of our current customers as well as to attract new customers in the area. Customer demand is pushing us to aggressively expand our footprint.”

Company officials said the Affiliated Foods building has been well maintained but needs $2 million to $3 million in upgrades and renovations to get it ready for production. The additional facility also will allow Nor-Am to hire about 50 more employees in the first 12 months once operational.
