Product Packaging, Cold Storage, Transportation
Since 1982, the owner of this legacy Company has focused on the lucrative and highly specialized niche providing bulk packaging (not bottling), transportation and cold storage to winery manufacturers in the Temecula Valley of Southern CA. Today, the Company services 90% of wineries in the area. The Temecula Valley’s wineries and casinos contribute over $1 Billion in local economic revenue to the area each year. This area has been coined "Southern California’s Napa Valley". People flock here for its outdoor recreation, entertainment, small-town atmosphere and evolving culinary scene. Geographically, the area is conveniently situated between Los Angeles, Riverside and San Diego Counties. The Company's owner and founder says, “Over the years, it has become evident that wineries are in the business of manufacturing wine, not so much in the transporting or storage of wine. This is where our Company excels.” After decades of service, the Company has built a trusted and respected reputation within the wine industry. The Company’s facility, which is owned, and is also being sold, has capacity for 2,000-pallet cold storage. It currently houses 1,200 pallets and thirty wine barrels. Two of the Company’s 108 active customers each comprise 13% and 14% of total revenues. Although individual winery customers insure their products, the Company holds a CA Dept. of Public Health Food and Drug Branch Cold Storage or Refrigerating Facility License and a CA Alcohol Beverage License to store wine and spirits.
