Pet Food Packaging Line Replacement

Project Case Study
In response to the growing demand for dry pet food at a global leader in the industry, the packaging process requires an upgrade at its Temple, Texas facility. The goal is to replace the existing small bag packaging line with a modern, upgraded system with greater throughput and efficiency.

Starting with a 30% conceptual design, our team assessed the current facility operations, packaging flow, layout design and utility load to design an upgraded packaging line. Future expansion possibilities were also considered. This analysis led to detailed drawings and specifications, forming IFB (Issue for Bid for Installers) and IFC (Issue for Construction) packages.

Using the latest design technology, the team conducted a laser scan of the space and developed a 3D model of the new line with clash detection. This model was incorporated into design reviews with the plant team for coordination and flow of operators and fork trucks and incorporated into the bid documents and vendor files for clear communication. McCownGordon worked collaboratively to coordinate corporate engineering goals with the local on-site needs. The team also managed all equipment procurement, managing lead times, purchase orders and ensuring on-time deliveries.
