Food & Beverage

With the massive growth of craft brewing in the region, and our realization that so many brewers are sourcing their equipment and services from across the country, we decided to step up our game and reorganize our existing experience, skills and talent to provide top-notch solutions from a local perspective.

We have combined our 30+ years experience in project flow design, time studies, efficiency awareness, case handling and case distribution in the beverage industry, our 60+ years combined welding experience, our 78+ years of combined rigging experience, our 10+ years of chemical engineering, process piping and water treatment, and our vast amount of consulting and equipment resources to create a division to provide direction, design and service to our local and regional brewers and food manufacturers.

We are now a phenomenal local resource to accommodate the food and beverage industry with better resources, local products and service, and cost savings.

We have the resources to help with production equipment recommendation based on required volume and throughput. As we grow this division, we will continue to expand our offerings. At this point, our strengths are in the following areas:
