THE J.M. SMUCKER COMPANY
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.
