The challenge

The Hershey Company engaged Alberici as part of a design-build team to provide construction services to retrofit an existing bread plant into a new confectionary plant in Monterrey, Mexico.

Retrofitting the former bread plant into a fully functional confectionary plant introduced substantial complexity, demanding detailed planning and adaptability throughout the project stages. Ensuring the harmonious integration of the new confectionary setup with the pre-existing infrastructure required innovative logistical and operational solutions.
