A new processing plant is a huge investment for any food manufacturer, and speed of getting product to market to meet demand supports a faster return on investment. Food processors are investing in facilities to last into the future, often with plans for additions and expansion at the same site. Many of these facilities are long-term assets — a representation of their brand today and tomorrow.

Wells building solutions support efficient engineering and open span design of space with the ability for future expansion and flexibility as operations evolve and grow. Our building solutions are prefabricated off-site, in controlled environments, supporting quick installation and immediate building enclosure, creating a more efficient structure.
