DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — A Miami Valley business said Tuesday it has plans to expand its facilities and add new jobs in New Bremen.

A&M Cold Storage and Trailer Leasing said it will expand its New Bremen facility, creating 10 new jobs. The company has already begun construction on a 10,000 square foot building project at 715 Streine Drive in New Bremen.

The company rents and leases refrigerated semi-trailers and portable walk-in coolers/freezers for the transport and storage of food, beverage, pharmaceuticals, composite materials, chemicals, and other materials that require climate control.

“Our goal is the construction of a new office building and warehouse to allow us the space to hire new employees to support the historical growth trends of 30% for the past 10 years. We are pleased to work with JobsOhio and the Village of New Bremen to make this expansion a reality,” said Allen Mescher, A&M’s President. “We appreciate all their help and guidance with this project.”

The headquarters building will be used for additional office and warehouse space with acreage for trailer and equipment parking.

“As the nation’s logistics and distribution networks continue to adapt to the changing economic needs, refrigeration is critical. The ability to store and transport products at the proper temperature ensure food, medicine and other products move safely across the country,” said Julie Sullivan, the Dayton Development Coalition’s Executive Vice President of Regional Development. “We’re excited to support A&M Storage’s growth in New Bremen.”

The company said in a release JobsOhio supported the project with a $40,000 Economic Development Grant. The project will retain six jobs. Financing is through Minster Bank and the general contractor is Baumer Construction.
