Dubai: — RSA Cold Chain, an established and award-winning cold chain solutions provider in the UAE, celebrated a groundbreaking ceremony for the highly anticipated phase 2 expansion of its state-of-the-art facility in Dubai. The ceremony was attended by the leadership team of RSA Cold Chain and Group AMANA who broke ground on a 12,000-pallet position facility. This development marks a milestone in the company's journey towards enhancing its capacity and service offerings to meet the escalating demands of the market in the region.  

In response to growing customer demand, RSA Cold Chain is operating from an additional facility, effectively doubling the capacity as the expansion project progresses. 

Earlier this year, RSA Global, the parent company of RSA Cold Chain, and Americold Realty Trust, Inc., a global leader in temperature-controlled logistics real estate and value-added services, announced their partnership and immediate plans to expand locally.  The companies plan to strategically pursue additional development opportunities in the Middle East.  

Following the partnership announcement, RSA Cold Chain immediately initiated the planning that led to this groundbreaking ceremony, exemplifying one of the many collaborations that RSA Cold Chain is undertaking. The new facility of RSA Cold Chain is poised to triple its network capacity, enhancing its provisions for the food industry, which encompasses both bonded and non-bonded storage solutions and a complete end-to-end cold and frozen supply chain solution.

Under the leadership of Abhishek Shah, RSA Cold Chain is well-positioned to make significant strides in expanding its services across industries requiring cold chain solutions in the UAE and the broader Middle East region. Mr. Shah shared, “This groundbreaking ceremony marks the initiation of a journey that promises not only increased operational capabilities but also enhanced efficiency and innovation in meeting the evolving needs of the food and beverage industry in the region.” 

Also in attendance was RSA Cold Chain Board Member, Richard Winnall, who stated, “As we break ground to pave the way for RSA Cold Chain's new Phase 2 expansion, we are expanding our space and storage capabilities in order to serve our customers better. This project demonstrates our commitment to partnering and delivering innovative growth in both the industry and the region.” 

 “For Group AMANA, this collaboration with RSA Cold Chain reflects our enduring dedication to redefining industry standards. Our partnership with RSA Cold Chain has been long-standing, and we have supported them by delivering all their projects in the region. By adopting a pioneering pre-cast and steel modular approach, we showcase our commitment to innovation and our unwavering focus on delivering certainty in solutions for our clients. We thank RSA Cold Chain for entrusting us to build with them once again.” Added Jihad Bsaibes, CEO, Group Amana.
