THE J.M. SMUCKER COMPANY
LEED New Construction v3 Certified
- In order to ensure long-term competitiveness and meet growing demand, The J.M. Smucker Company decided to build a 300,000 SF facility that embraced the latest equipment and technologies on its corporate campus.
- This new space, which was located adjacent to an existing finished goods warehouse on their 35-acre corporate campus featured rail receiving, bulk dry and liquid commodities, three high-speed production lines and five portion control lines.
- Dennis Group adopted a phased construction approach in order to seamlessly transition operations from an existing facility.
- Careful planning and permitting were required since the site had several wetland areas. In addition to mitigating the wetland disturbance, sustainability was a key focus of the project since the company has committed to be environmentally conscious and socially responsible.
