Kraft Foods

Project Description

Provided all construction work required for the 25,000 S.F. Process Building Addition to the Kraft Foods’ CapriSun Plant in Granite City, Illinois including all exterior site work.

The Kraft Foods’ CapriSun facility in Granite City, Illinois is their largest Juice manufacturing Plant in North America. When Kraft decided to bring a new CapriSun product to market they needed a Process Building Addition added to the existing facility. The construction of this new addition had to be “Fast-Tracked” in order to meet the aggressive “Product to Market” dates as set forth by the Client. Kraft Foods needed a reliable partner and selected UISC to provide all construction services for the project based on the past long standing successful relationship they have had.

Despite the logistic problems associated with maintaining enough Auto parking for the Plant employees throughout construction, UISC was able to complete the Addition ahead of schedule and under budget, resulting in the new product going to market on time along with substantial savings to the Owner.
