Refrigerated Storage

When temperature-controlled warehouses are central to a business, and R-values become the determining factor, Winkelman incorporates a proprietary SIP (structural insulated panel) technology that has been the preference of more than a few of Minnesota’s most successful beverage distributorships and food processing facilities.

By choosing WBC as their design/build firm for the construction and expansion of their refrigerated storage facilities, companies such as C & L Distributing and Nash Finch have leveraged the innovative benefits of Energy-Lok panels from Winkelman Building Co. LLC to ensure that operating efficiency and costs remain in check while staying focused on the additional value of these light, versatile and structurally sounds systems from Energy Panel Structures
