Snack Food Line Facility Planning

Salas O’Brien partnered with a Confidential Major Food Manufacturer to add a new production line to meet consumer demand. The increase in SKUs and sales made it difficult to comply with supply chain requirements. The new line included a truck dump, prep station, frying, seasoning, sorting, and packaging.

Our team updated the existing 1990s building and developed a plan for its expansion. The client requested a new production line, including all required engineering, infrastructure, and equipment, to support a system that delivers 4,200 pounds per hour of raw material. The scope included flooring, wall, ceiling, building, process utilizations, and drain upgrades to ensure any new/impacted food production spaces are food-safe.

We completed all the front-end engineering and planning phase deliverables identified in the proposed scope of services. Our engineering/design planned and performed a laser scan of the area to develop equipment layout, design for pipe routing, P&IDs set for process/pack equipment, mechanical/HVAC planning, and civil/structural planning.
