StockPot, a subsidiary of Campbell Soup Company, produced fresh-refrigerated soups, entrées, sauces, chilies, gravies, and side dishes. All products emphasized freshness and quality, using fresh-cut vegetables, genuine dairy products, fresh herbs and spices, and premium meats and seafood.
Dennis Group provided complete design-build services for StockPot’s new greenfield facility project in Woodinville, WA, but their business had tripled in a short time, so Dennis Group was once again engaged when they required a second new facility on an 18-acre site.
The new soup manufacturing facility doubled the size of their production capacity, as well as implemented an expanded state-of-the-art clean-in-place (CIP) system to accommodate the made-to-order soup runs while improving production efficiency of StockPot’s unique cook, chill and packaging systems.
Sheet Brothers developed a kitchen bakery, distribution center and warehouse on a 44-acre site to support their growing distribution fleet in the Southern region.
Dennis Group provided complete site, facility and process design, procurement and installation services for this greenfield site.
A 44.64 acre site was developed for construction of a 246,000 SF processing facility to house 42,000 SF of production space, and equipment for the making of donuts, donut holes, breakfast sandwiches, cold sandwiches and wraps, parfait cups, and repackaging of mac-n-cheese from bulk to individual serving containers.
This project also encompassed an office building to support the 116,000 SF ambient distribution warehouse, 45,000 SF refrigerated warehouse and retail operations and an annex structure for fleet maintenance, vehicle washing, and fueling.
Sheetz Brothers wanted to develop a new commissary facility including a bakery and ready-to-eat area to produce products that would be delivered fresh daily to the company’s 350 locations across six states.
Dennis Group provided complete turn-key site development, facility, process design and construction management design-build services for Sheetz Brothers’ Kitchen new commissary facility in Claysburg, Pennsylvania. The project involved the construction of a new 140,000 SF commissary facility in conjunction with a 28,000 SF expansion to the existing Sheetz Distribution Center, as well as, other campus improvements.
Major accomplishments of the project included complete facility construction, process installation and commissioning in less than 12 months. This successful project was completed on schedule and exceeded expectation in many areas of design and performance. The facility has also been designed for future expansion to both the bakery and “ready-to-eat” areas.
A new greenfield facility was built on a 35-acre site to produce The J.M. Smucker Company’s very popular thaw and serve peanut butter and jelly sandwich line.
Speed-to-market was key to meet growing consumer demand, and this fast-track project which included a 188,000 SF bread bakery, automated sandwich assembly and packaging line, went from site design to commissioning in under 12 months.
The campus encompassed a 20,000 SF finished goods storage freezer, refrigerated shipping docks and 18,000 SF of office space.
Future expansion needs played a role in both the building design and the utility system sizing, and subsequent projects executed by Dennis Group have enlarged the footprint to 320,000 SF.
