New pet food plant for canned dog and cat foods

SPG provided major equipment setting services for a large canned pet food manufacturing line on Nestle’s Phase I effort of building the Hartwell, GA plant, successfully wrapped up the effort in April, 2019. Our equipment setting scope included rigging and setting of cooking, packaging, conveying, and other production equipment.
Dozens of shipping containers and flatbeds were usually arriving daily.
Our team’s efforts included collaborating with Nestle Purina and one of their key equipment fabricators in Wisconsin, on how to best fabricate, ship, receive, and assemble 2 level platform systems with oven modules; and for other equipment, mezzanines, etc.
Both food production and distribution are housed in this former textile mill, with over 1 million sq. ft. of space
SPG constructed all process piping contract for this same area, including sanitary piping systems, stainless utility piping and specialty process piping.
