Former Unilever Food Processing Plant & Equipment Now Available

Press Release
A partnership of Gordon Brothers Group, M Davis Group and New Mill Capital has acquired the former Unilever Edible Oils Processing and Cold Storage Facility in Baltimore, MD and is currently offering the property and equipment for sale prior to auction. 
Located at 3701 Southwestern Boulevard, the property is available as a fully operating Edible Oils Production facility or separately as a manufacturing/distribution facility for a variety of uses including controlled substance processing, cold storage, food or product warehousing and distribution or transportation hub and is well positioned for consideration as a candidate for state and local support for job creation initiatives.

The plant is both ideal as a food processing facility and, due to its location / features, is well suited for a broad range of other uses. This truly represents an outstanding opportunity for a manufacturing or distribution location in the Northeastern Corridor.

The FDA and USDA approved plant comprises over 161,000 square feet of manufacturing, distribution and office space and is ideally located on approximately seven acres in southwest Baltimore, adjacent to the CSX Transportation rail system, close proximity to Interstate 95, Interstate 695, Interstate 70 and the Port of Baltimore and less than one-day access to over half of the US population. Since its construction in 1948, the facility has been continually updated to address advanced food manufacturing processes and federal certifications. Originally producing margarine for J.H. Filbert Company, the facility was purchased by Central Soya in 1973 and subsequently in 1986 by Unilever, producing a wide range of food products including Shedd's Spread Country Crock®, Promise Spreads® and I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!®. The facility features spacious production and packaging areas, refrigerated racked and dry goods warehousing, distribution department, accessible rail spur, loading docks, R&D and labs and offices, including:
