The Freeport Center is a manufacturing, warehousing, and distribution center located in Clearfield, Utah, United States. It was originally built in 1942 as the Clearfield Naval Supply Depot, which was decommissioned in 1962.

The 680-acre (280 ha) Freeport Center consists of 78 buildings, totaling more than 7,000,000 square feet (650,000 m2).

Buildings range in size from 4,000 square feet (370 m2) to 400,000 square feet (37,000 m2).[1] Most buildings have a railroad loading dock on one side, and a truck loading dock on the other.

About 70 companies have manufacturing and distribution facilities in the Freeport Center, including Lifetime Products,[2] Alliant Techsystems,[3] Don Julio Foods, Kraft Foods, and Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company, as well as being the former headquarters of defunct roller coaster company Arrow Dynamics.

The Freeport Center’s name is a reference to Utah’s Freeport Law, enacted in 1988. This law exempts inventory held for sale from property taxes.[4]
