Crescent Crown: New Mesa Warehouse

Crescent Crown: New Mesa Warehouse

Representatives from the Crescent Crown Distributing will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony for their new Mesa warehouse facility.

The ceremony will take place on Thursday, February 16th at 11 am at the site on Broadway Road between Alma School and Dobson Roads.

Mesa Mayor Scott Smith and the city’s council members, along with other invited guests, are expected to attend.

Tours will then be given, following the ceremony.

The warehouse, which is 335,000 square feet, is the second new facility Crescent Crown has opened in the Valley.  The warehouse, which is mainly a controlled temperature warehouse, also consists of office space and refrigerated space.

The facility will be the corporate headquarters for Crescent Crown’s operations in Arizona and will service approximately 400 employees and over 60 sales and delivery routes.

“Our business has evolved over the past eight years, thanks to the hard work, dedication and focus of our employees along with the support of our values customers here in the Greater Metro area.  This new location recognizes our need to maximize operational efficiencies with a more modern facility to service our East Valley customers and provide our employees with the resources they need to sustain growth and drive productivity for the future,” says James R (Bubba) Moffett, Jr, President of Crescent Crown.

“the Broadway site is the ideal strategic location for our delivery system in the East Valley much in the same way our facility in Surprise benefits us logistically in the West Valley.  The location providers our sale and operations personnel efficient access,” added Moffett.

The warehouse functions on a clean energy production system and will utilize a 600 kilowatt roof-mounted solar array, which provide 1 million kilowatt hours of solar-generated electricity every year. This will have a significant impact on the environment, as it will save 40.4 million pounds of Carbon Dioxide emissions over 25 years.  This is equivalent to planting 470,000 trees, or taking over three thousand cars off the road.

The warehouse will also utilize LED lighting, motion detectors for light switches, variable drive motors for the HVAC system and other ecologically advanced technologies.
