About Us

A Message From the President

My passion is teamwork. During the past 25 years, I have enjoyed working with associates, customers, investors, and partners to implement “Win-Win-Win-Win” strategies throughout the cold chain. More than ever, winning strategies require collaboration and treating each other as we would members of our own family. I am proud to be a Founder of Agile Cold Storage. Our foundation is built on prior successes in giving teammates a safe, respectful place to work and in servicing customers as if we were members of their team. Agile means, “able to move quickly and easily.” We are easy to work and do business with. Technology and automation will play a key role in Agile’s growth. For our team members, it will help us provide a better, safer work environment where they can be trained for tomorrow’s jobs, not yesterday’s. For our customers, technology and automation help us provide consistent, superior service at the most efficient prices.

 

We are not going to be the largest cold storage operator; we are solely focused on being the best. We are not looking for customers; we are focused on long-term partners. Our coworkers are not employees of a generic corporation; they are the lifeblood of our organization and critical members of our corporate family. I cannot wait to introduce you to the Agile Way.

 

—Don
