New Aseptic Filling Line

Food-Client_Aseptic-Filling-Line1A production increase at a client’s existing facility required a new aseptic line addition to the existing production process. This capacity increase required process, packaging, and palletizing equipment installation, as well as a 1,000 SF process area expansion and 1,600 SF truck dock expansion. Given SSOE’s strong relationship with the client, as well as our experience providing mechanical utilities and HVAC controls for a previous aseptic expansion at this facility, the firm was the obvious choice to provide engineering services necessary to successfully deliver this project.
