Americold Realty Trust (NYSE: COLD), an owner and operator of temperature-controlled warehouses, rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) on April 11, signaling the start of the day’s trading.

Americold launched an initial public offering (IPO) in January. According to the company, the IPO marked a significant step in its growth and positions it to expand its warehouse network and capabilities.

Americold President and CEO Fred Boehler noted that the REIT is the first publicly traded owner-operator dedicated to temperature-controlled infrastructure.

“We believe the combination of our high-quality portfolio of mission-critical assets, technology driven platform and deep and experienced team will allow us to continue to grow our company and remain the industry leader,” Boehler said.
