The project involved building a 382,000-square-foot premium pet food manufacturing facility to replace an aging plant. T.E. Ibberson Company (Ibberson) was selected as the design-build contractor based on positive experiences from an earlier project.
T.E. Ibberson Company (Ibberson) was awarded the contract for a premium new dog and cat food facility that was a highly confidential project at the time it was conceived and built. The extruded, dry pet food process was designed jointly by Nutro and Ibberson. The facility itself was designed and constructed by Ibberson.
T.E. Ibberson Company (Ibberson) was given the challenge of totally replacing or relocating the packaging system and empty-can conveying system at this facility without interrupting around-the-clock production. In addition to the rigors of working in an operating plant, the construction team was required to maintain an exemplary level of safety and sanitation.
Ibberson was awarded the contract to design and build of the new poultry feed mill. This was one of three facilities being constructed on a site that included a high-speed rail unloading facility capable of unloading 110 car unit grain trains in approximately 12 hours.
Tyson Foods contracted Ibberson to provide complete turnkey work for their new poultry feed mill in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. The mill includes fully automated batching at 140 TPH, pelleting in two lines at 120 TPH, rail receiving at 600 TPH, truck receiving at 350 TPH, barge unloading at 600 TPH, grinding at 120 TPH, and loadout at 400 TPH.
