Bay Grove Capital LLC, a principal investment firm based in San Francisco CA, has made operational improvements and a significant investment at its Flint River Services (FRS) Savannah facility, expanding capacity to meet customer needs. Constructed in 2007, the Savannah GA site comprises 8 million cubic feet of temperature-controlled space. Its location, proximal to Interstate 95 and near the Port of Savannah, offers a superior staging facility for imports and exports.
Over the next several months, a significant investment in Savannah will increase total pallet positions by about 30%.
“This investment in Savannah will provide our customers even greater access to the Port of Savannah,” said Kevin Marchetti, managing director of Bay Grove. “The Port of Savannah has become a hub for tremendous economic growth within the United States, and we want to continue investing to support that.”
Matt Miller has been appointed as the new division manager to oversee the Savannah facility’s operations and optimize its port-dedicated services capabilities. He has an extensive warehousing and logistics background focused on import/export services and will report to Marty Gaddy, director of operations.
FRS is a cold storage outsourced logistics provider that operates more than 30 million cubic feet of temperature-controlled storage capacity. Founded in 1992 and headquartered in Albany GA, the company has campuses in Albany, Unadilla, and Savannah near commodity processing plants, key ports, and distribution hubs. All facilities are rail-served. The company has domestic and international clients in the poultry, nut, berry, and other frozen food producing, processing, and distribution sectors.
