Westrock Coffee builds its new production and distribution center in Conway, Arkansas to meet the growing demand throughout the U.S and its international market. The project was "fast tracked" starting in January of 2023 and finished within a year by Tempus Realty Partners. 

The project consisted of a 530,000-square-foot industrial facility built on 30 acres. The building features 36-foot clear height, a 13,000-square-foot mezzanine office, 100,000 square feet of air-conditioned production area, extensive power distribution and an exterior enclosed machine room.

"Every member of our team, including the city of Conway who helped at every turn, went to extraordinary lengths to complete this project on time and under budget," Mark Saviers, Tempus Realty Partners General Partner and leader of the development team, said. "We overcame torrential spring rains and supply chain issues by great teamwork and by working seven-day weeks most of the year to meet the deadline." 

The Tempus development team included Clark Contractors, Lewis Architects, Engineering Consultants and Build Nimble/Colliers Arkansas as Construction Managers. Westrock Coffee was represented by Ted Dickey of Lighthouse Asset Advisors.

"We are pleased with the collaborative effort of this team and are grateful to the state of Arkansas and the city of Conway for their continued support," Will Ford, Westrock's Group President of Operations said.
