In 2003, SMP Marketing LLC made an addition to the company with the decision to build a new distribution center in Eau Claire, Michigan. This addition operates as Southwest Michigan Produce Center and is owned and operated by SMP Marketing LLC, Akin & Porter Produce, Moore & Porter Produce, and Costanza Farms. We built a 40,000 sq. ft. refrigerated facility, which is open year round for repacking and distribution purposes.
This new facility is equipped with a state of the art ammonia refrigeration system and is Primus Labs verified. During the months of June thru October, this location has allowed us to overnight deliveries to the Midwest, Eastern, and Southeastern regions. The ability to overnight product gives the buyers an added option of making changes to their orders just hours before deliveries, giving the buyer more control of warehouse inventory levels.
