A M King worked in tandem with ALDI to determine adequate site infrastructure requirements for local economic development incentives and assisted ALDI in acquiring the 167-acre site. Development of this facility is a continued effort to maximize the efficiency of ALDI’s operations through facility design. Some of these elements include use of Insulated Metal Panels (IMP) in lieu of concrete or precast exterior walls; optimum racking organization determined by product analysis; ALDI’s first use of cross-docking services in a distribution center; large, unobstructed areas of glazing at the office for outdoor views and natural light; and restrooms, locker rooms and maintenance in the central core of the building. This facility will service more than 100 stores in southern Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and the Florida Panhandle.
