Bridging the Knowledge Gap

One of the most interesting things we do each year is host leadership students from our local high school (Auburndale High School – Go Bloodhounds!) and give them a glimpse of what we do here at Adams Cold Storage and the role we play in how their food goes from the farm to their table.  We actually have one of those students working for us this summer, earning money for college – that’s another thing we like to do as often as possible, but that’s a story for another column!

Accommodation Builds Trust and Loyalty

If you look up “cold storage news” on the Internet, you’ll find plenty of articles about an industry growing on the backs of big-box companies and venture capitalists that are consolidating and growing and pushing the industry forward.

Finally, it is with a sad heart that we at ACS note the passing of our Executive Vice President, Bruce Bachman.  Bruce had been a longtime friend to me and my family since 1980 and here at Adams Cold Storage since it began in 2010.  A graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, Bruce was a builder, a leader and his fingerprints are all over our company.  He was directly involved in the management of our 250,000 square foot facility, helping ACS achieve and maintain the highest standards in the industry.  He left a lasting legacy for his family, his community, and this company that will be felt for decades to come.

Performance During Crisis

In late February, Adams Cold Storage underwent the annual BRC Global Standards Audit.  Once the technical review is completed, we anticipate our fifth consecutive AA rating.  Regardless of our score, this year’s audit results will be one of the most significant in our past 10-year history.
