GAB Operations ready to open new Laredo distribution facility
A new 45,000-square-foot GAB Operations produce distribution facility in Laredo, Texas, has been completed.
GAB — a Guanajuato, Mexico-based fresh and frozen produce distributor — commissioned A M King to design and construct the facility, which will serve as a hub for the company’s U.S. and Canadian customers.
GAB specializes in the production, development, marketing and distribution of fresh and frozen vegetables and fruits. Items include broccoli, cauliflower, spinach and other leafy greens, varieties of lettuce, celery, sweet corn, snow peas, pumpkin, sweet mini peppers and berries.
In addition, the company, which operates under the brand names Mr. Lucky and Covemex, is one of the largest garlic and organic tomato producers in Mexico, prepares fresh-cut produce for foodservice clients and provides pre-packed salads and private-label products for many U.S.-based produce businesses.
GAB’s Laredo distribution center is located in the Pinnacle Industry Center, which is just minutes from the Rio Grande River, World Trade Bridge border crossing and the Laredo International Airport. It is neighbor to Mission Produce’s new 262,000-sf greenfield ripening, processing and distribution center, a recently completed A M King project.
