Texas company shows off its year of warehouse developments

For Abasto Properties, exhibiting at Viva Fresh is a chance to show off its Texas best. “We’re a Texas company with most of our current and future warehouse developments in this state,” says Fernando Narvaez of San Antonio, Tex.-based Abasto. “This Texas-centered show is the best showcase for our warehousing solutions and services for fresh produce companies looking to start, relocate or expand their operations to places like San Antonio or McAllen, Texas.”

Narvaez adds that not only is the show an efficient way to meet customers and key industry players at once, but it also lets Abasto stay on top of industry trends specific to its warehouse and cold-storage business. 

At this year’s show Abasto plans to provide updates from its new San Antonio Wholesale Produce Market--the company now has finished warehouses for lease in the market, each of which has about 4,000 square feet with cold room capacity for up to 156 pallets and units that can connect as double or triple units. 

“Since last year’s show, we’ve had our grand opening of the first phase of this new development consisting of 60 warehouse units,” says Narvaez, who adds that also within this project, Abasto has developed lots for companies to build-to-suit their own 10,000 square feet storage or processing facility. “New companies are moving in to our turn-key warehouses every month and we’re already working on the next phases to accommodate larger operations.” Meanwhile in McAllen, Abasto offers refrigerated warehouses in a wider range of sizes--from 1,400 to 40,000 square feet--with custom layouts and improvements.

The need to get cold
The expansion at Abasto is no surprise given the need for services in Texas. “Cold storage has been in high demand, especially in south Texas since it correlates to the increase of fresh produce imports from Mexico and consumption in the US,” says Narvaez.

Which makes returning to Viva Fresh a prime opportunity for Abasto. “It focuses on Texas and although the Expo time is shorter than in other important events in the industry, this forces everyone to be the most productive with their time and interactions,” says Narvaez. 

Abasto can be visited at booth #314 at Viva Fresh.
