Cloverleaf has 15 facilities located in the central and eastern United States and was recently ranked as the 10th largest cold storage firm internationally by the IARW, an industry trade group.

Construction is scheduled to be completed by next spring and the facility has a projected opening date of April 1, 2015. The operation will create over 150 full time jobs. For more information regarding this project or Cloverleaf Cold Storage, please contact Adam Feiges at 712-279-8000.
