Nestlé Purina Petcare Allentown, Pennsylvania, United States

Multiple expansions and process equipment installations while maintaining 24/7 operations

Helping Industry Leaders Meet Global Demand

In order to satisfy growing demand in the pet food industry, longtime client Nestlé Purina Petcare selected Alberici to expand their manufacturing campus in Allentown, PA. Using design-build delivery, Alberici performed extensive renovations and additions within an operational production facility to support new automated processing systems. The Allentown expansion was the third successful capital improvement project completed by Alberici for Nestlé Purina Petcare in recent years.

Total Facility Renovation, Fast-Track Schedule

Alberici’s scope of work included construction of a new processing area, canning operations expansion, packaging building addition, utility system upgrades, relocation of site utilities and loading docks, and process equipment installation. The project also included demolition of an existing office annex and construction of a new administration building and parking area. Alberici completed the entire project, including design, construction, equipment installation, and plant commissioning, in a period of less than 24 months.

Maintaining Operations and Sanitary Food Standards

To accommodate Nestlé Purina Petcare’s around-the-clock production schedule and strict standards for safety and food sanitation, Alberici carefully sequenced activities using detailed phasing strategies and FDA-approved temporary partition walls. This allowed the team to maintain plant operations and protect operational manufacturing lines.
