Top Award for Dairy Products Facility

Company News, Commercial & Manufacturing Facilities, Americas
Valley Milk's 142,000 sq.ft manufacturing facility in Turlock, California which was designed and built by EMCOR Group subsidiary, Shambaugh & Son, has been named as Food Engineering Magazine’s "2019 Plant of the Year".

 

This is the fifth such award to a facility designed and built by the EMCOR subsidiary.

 

Commenting on the news, Valley Milk CEO, Patti Smith, said:

"This is a great honor for Valley Milk. Working with the Shambaugh team has been a remarkable experience."

"It is incredible to bring a complex vision to reality for our company's founders, and this award makes it even more meaningful."

 

Paul R. Meyers, Jr., P.E., President and CEO of Shambaugh & Son, added:

"The Valley Milk facility has been an amazing project for our team. Bringing together Shambaugh's engineering, construction and dairy processing experience with the expertise of Valley Milks founders and their staff has proven to be a winning combination."

 

Valley Milk's powder manufacturing facility opened in 2018 and can accept 50 milk tankers and process 2.5 million pounds of milk into non-fat dry and skimmed milk powder daily.

 

The design of the plant meets or exceeds stringent regulations that are in effect in the state of California relating to energy costs, and the plant is almost 100 per cent sustainable in its water consumption.
