Flagship Food to expand manufacturing and distribution facilities in Mexico

Published 16 August 2017

Flagship Food Group, a US-based food company, will expand its manufacturing and distribution facilities in Albuquerque, Mexico, by building a 76,000ft2 warehouse.

The new distribution facility, which will serve the customers from a single point of distribution, will have a research and development center, offices, and a small museum.

Flagship's popular 505 Southwestern brand ("505" signifiesAlbuquerque's area code) is produced in New Mexico and certified as a "New Mexico True" product.Nearly $100 million of 505 Southwestern-branded products are sold from London to Los Angeles, spreading the awareness of New Mexico flavors and cuisine in 125,000 points of distribution throughout the world.

The State of New Mexico has continued to show support for Flagship and its investment in the State. 

Governor Martinez said: "Since day one, we've been fighting hard to make New Mexico more competitive with surrounding states through reforms like cutting taxes and streamlining regulations. Results like these mean more jobs for New Mexicans, and give us even more momentum to build on as we keep working to grow and diversify our economy."

Holland said: "We are grateful for the support and business-friendly environment thatNew Mexico has given us. Our new distribution facility inNew Mexico will help us better serve our customers and represents another important step in the growth and development of our company."

The facility represents a collaboration between Flagship's diverse leadership team.  Carlos Angulo, the Company's Chief Operating Officer, led the project with support from the president of the Flagship Logistics division, Pat O'Keefe, and other company executives.  The warehouse will operate with a state-of-the-art inventory tracking system currently utilized in Flagship's other warehouse facility. 

Angulo said: "As our Southwestern food portfolio has doubled in size in only a few short years, we needed a facility that would warehouse our products and support our customers across the country with extreme efficiency and reliability.  Working with our amazing team of operators and professionals, we've taken the project from concept to a fully-operational facility in less than one year."
