In 2016, brothers Michael, Mark & Nick Mandich embarked on a new career trajectory, founding Cold-Link Logistics. From a humble bay freezer facility in Doral, Florida, they leaped into the logistics industry. Today, with 14 members in management and over 200 employees across 5 states, Cold-Link stands as a full-service logistics company driven by family values and innovative cold chain solutions.

The company's expansion to Sioux City, initiated in 2021, reflected a strategic move after identifying the need for a cold storage warehouse in the Midwest. From meticulous planning, customer engagement, and infrastructure development, the 189,000 sq ft facility, poised for future expansion, became a reality in March 2023. Key customers include Wells Blue Bunny, Purdue Premium Meats, and empirical, among others. The Cold-Link Logistics team has grown to over 75 members.

Cold-Link Logistics, committed to employee welfare and customer-centric solutions, anchors itself in the heart of the Sioux City community, ready for a future of successful partnerships and continuous growth.

Woodbury County REC provides power to the Southbridge Business Park and has supported park upgrades to accommodate Cold Link Logistics' and future tenants' needs.  WEBSITE
