P&B Cold Storage plans to construct a 192,695-square-foot refrigerated warehouse on vacant land at 23288 Roemer Drive, in the Woodburn Industrial Park, the News-Sentinel reports.

The company is seeking a tax abatement on the project that calls for $20 million in real estate improvements and $2.75 million in logistical and information technology equipment.

Construction is scheduled to begin next month.

The News-Sentinel reports the expansion is expected to result in 30 new jobs that pay $18 an hour.
