The additional space will allow the distributorship to stock more inventory, buy in larger quantities and pass savings on to its customers, said Ron Lukenbaugh, general manager.
"It will also give us the ability to expand our distribution area," Lukenbaugh said.
Mid-America President and ceo Mark Dick also said the new freezer represents a continued long-term investment the Oklahoma community. The project has been mentioned by Greater Enid Chamber of Commerce officials as a factor in Enid's recent designation by Inc. Magazine as a Top 25 non-metro area in which to do business.
The new freezer is not the only expansion the company is undertaking. Lukenbaugh said the company is buying some land east of the building for future expansion. The freezer, however, should provide the company enough space for the next six to 10 years, Dick said.
