Packaging and empty-can conveying system - North Sioux City, S.D.
The Iams Company
Design, Engineering and Construction
T.E. Ibberson Company (TEI) was awarded the contract for the replacing/relocating the packaging system and empty-can conveying system.
Because plant sanitation is critical to The Iams Company, it participates in a stringent food plant sanitation audit program developed by the American Institute of Baking. The AIB provides Iams management with an indicator of how well their facility is complying with local regulations as well as to Iams’ established internal standards. The willingness of the Iams Company employees, in conjunction with on-site construction personnel to extend themselves past the requirements of their construction activities was instrumental in The Iams Company receiving an AIB sanitation rating of Excellent.
The success of this project was punctuated by Iams attaining an all-time high efficiency rating and accomplishing the mutual goal of minimizing the impact of construction activities on the project.
