Frío Dock is a company whose owners have been working for more than 40 years in the industry of frozen food.
They started in the year 1995, in Martinez, Buenos Aires. In the year 2005, the company settled down in Tortuguitas, in the northern section of Buenos Aires
Frío Dock purchased an old plant of 20,000 m2, which was refurbished and reorganized for the new purpose. It began with a capacity of 600 frozen positions, 200 of cooling and 60 tons for freezing tunnel.
It first started as a service company, being the storing of products at low temperatures the main activity. As years went by, the storing capacity and the freezing tunnels were enlarged, in order to satisfy the clients’ needs.
In the year 2009, the company reached a storing capacity of 2,400 freezing positions; 900 cooling positions; 200 dry positions; a tunnel prepared to daily freeze 150 tons and an antechamber of approximately 1,000 m2 with controlled temperature. A state-of-the-art engine room, equipped with ammonia compressors was created, too.
In mid-2010, the company gets the permit as a bonded warehouse, giving the client a better and more complete service which starts with the reception of the merchandising, its freezing; and then the consolidation for the later exportation.
Nowadays, it has developed different business units that let the clients’ needs get the solutions they deserve. Apart from the service of storing merchandising at different temperatures (freezing, fresh and dry) there were other services which were later acquired, as the consolidation of merchandise (bonded warehouse), distribution center for many clients, combo copacking, labeling service, and containers plug in, among others.
The company has just finished the construction of a dry warehouse, with a capacity for 1,000 positions, an antechamber and two loading and unloading docks.
As regards human resources, Frío Dock started out with only five employees, and today there are almost fifty among administrative employees, technicians, handymen, and plant workers.
