FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
FOOD HOUSE SELECTS FOOD TECH FOR SOUTH CAROLINA GREENFIELD
Florence, SC, January 11, 2005 –
Engineering and construction management firm Food Tech LLC, of Hanover, Massachusetts, has been selected
by Institution Food House, Inc. to design and manage construction
of a new 310,000 square foot foodservice distribution
facility in Florence, South Carolina. The project will
also include a 14,000 square foot fleet maintenance facility.
"IFH has simply outgrown their existing facility," says Food
Tech project manager Bob Ross. "Rather than contend with the
operational restrictions and limited land available at their
current location, they decided to construct a new facility that
we can design around product and people flow." Ross adds that
the Florence greenfield project entails a full spectrum of Food
Tech's services, from facility sizing to site selection to final
design and construction management.
"We're very excited about this project and we value the confidence
that IFH continues to show in us," says Food Tech President
Luke Heffernan. Food Tech has been involved in several projects
for Institution Food House, including a 120,000 square foot
cooler renovation recently completed in Hickory, North Carolina.
"With our market and client base rapidly expanding, either
an expansion or a new facility would be necessary to continue
that trend," says IFH's General Manager Rick Wilder. "Our
number one priority is client satisfaction and we're looking
forward to having Food Tech construct a new facility that
will help us to continue to provide the level of service our
customers have become accustomed to."
