Project Description

Business Depot Ogden just got a bit sweeter with the completion of the new Hershey’s Distribution Center. Hershey’s is the nation’s second-largest candy maker. Due to the extreme heat sensitivity of chocolate, the Hershey’s Distribution Warehouse was constructed using a steel frame, insulated metal panels, a single-ply roofing membrane and an elaborate mechanical cooling system which is proprietary to Hershey’s.

This new facility includes an office area, cross docks for shipping and truck docks on both sides of the building and holds a whole lot of Twizzlers, Kit Kats, Hershey’s Syrup and their signature Hershey’s chocolate bars. The building has a shrinkage compensating industrial floor, minimizing floor joints and holds a large amount of specialized racking for their product. This building also includes a battery charging and maintenance shop area. A free standing truck entry and security building were also constructed for facilities control.

This design-build project was completed in eight months to accommodate the closing and product shift from another facility within the Hershey’s Distribution chain. The project received accolades for the project team from all levels of management within the Hershey’s organization.
