Mission Foods: Mission Foods – Lakeland, FL
Mission Foods – Lakeland, FL
Mission Foods is best known as the #1 tortilla company in the United States, as well as for its fresh, authentic Mexican food products. In 2017, Mission Foods needed to renovate their facility in Lakeland, Florida. JAX Refrigeration, through its JAX Cool department, was contracted to provide a cool box room for the dehumidification systems on two additional tortilla-cooling rooms, and to install insulated metal panels and doors at the food processing facility where their famous tortillas are packaged. JAX Cool worked with Grumma Engineering to add new walls and doors to the 5,000-square-foot project. The project lasted roughly one month.
JAX Cool was faced with a major project that required a tight turnaround in order to allow the plant to remain operational and avoid disruption in productivity. The project required high standards of sanitation in the workspace, and careful measures were taken to avoid contamination of products being produced. The logistics of moving workspaces from place to place in order to accommodate new construction also presented a challenge.
