Kitchen Appliance Manufacturer Starts Second Facility Near Phoenix Article originally posted on CoStar on February 6, 2023 Planned Building Would Increase Sub-Zero Group’s Presence in Goodyear, Arizona Sub-Zero Group previously opened a manufacturing and distribution center in Goodyear, Arizona, in 2011. (Deutsch Architecture Group) Sub-Zero Group plans to open a second plant in Phoenix’s Goodyear suburb as the kitchen appliance company expands its manufacturing footprint across the United States. Developers ViaWest Group and Scottsdale Investment Management broke ground this month on a 599,351-square-foot facility for Sub-Zero, based in Madison, Wisconsin, on 36 acres at the southwest corner of Camelback Road and Cotton Lane, according to a ViaWest statement. Sub-Zero, which makes refrigeration, cooking and dishwashing appliances under brands that also include Wolf and Cove, was the first manufacturer in Goodyear’s PV303 business park when it opened a plant just north of the expansion site in 2011, Goodyear Mayor Joe Pizzillo said in the statement. The company’s 687,862-square-foot facility at 4295 N. Cotton Lane was among the first manufacturing plants along the Loop 303 freeway, a corridor that now boasts such companies as Boeing, Microsoft, White Claw, XPO Logistics, UPS, Walmart and Red Bull. Real estate developers have targeted Goodyear, Glendale and other areas on the outskirts of Phoenix where land is more available to build such massive industrial projects such as Park 303, The Cubes at Glendale and Cotton 303 Logistics Center, according to CoStar Market Analytics. ViaWest also has two industrial developments under way with Phoenix-based Willmeng Construction along the Interstate 10 corridor near the border of Tempe and Phoenix. Both projects, Converge Logistics Center and Sight Logistics Park. Both are expected to be finished this year, ViaWest said in the statement. Sub-Zero announced plans to build a 400,000-square-foot light manufacturing plant in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, according to documents filed with the Iowa Economic Development Authority, which approved tax credits and other incentives for the $140.6 million project last summer. The company is scheduled to start construction on the Iowa plant in August and finish the project in 2025. For the Record Willmeng Construction is the general contractor for Sub-Zero’s facility in Goodyear. Two design and engineering firms, DLR Group and Kimley-Horn, are also working on Sub-Zero’s new facility.
