Mascoutah-based Jung Warehousing Inc. is adding a new warehouse to its transportation, warehousing and logistic services.
Edwardsville-based general contractor Contegra Construction is building the 126,350-square-foot facility in Mount Vernon, and it is scheduled to debut this fall.
Located on a 26-acre site at 2620 Industrial Drive in Mount Vernon, the warehouse is being constructed of tilt-up concrete panels. It will feature a 36-foot clear height ceiling, 12 dock doors, one drive-in ramp and two trailer recessed docks, a bridge crane for loading and offloading trucks, LED lighting and a thermoplastic polyolefin roof. The project will also feature office space and trailer parking.
Headquartered in Mascoutah, family-owned Jung Warehousing is part of the Jung Companies, a group of transportation-related entities designed to offer customers a complete supply chain solution.
In 2002, Jung Warehousing expanded its business into Mount Vernon with a 45,000-square-foot warehouse. Jung’s presence there has continued to grow. With the addition of the new facility, Jung Warehousing will have more than 500,000 square feet of warehouse space in Mount Vernon. Other Jung Companies, Jung Truck Service Inc. and Jung Transport, LLC. have also grown their operations in Mount Vernon since 2002.
