The Korte Company partnered with Trouw Nutrition to deliver a 23,700-square-foot Design-Build expansion to its existing pilot facility at their Highland, Illinois location. The new addition incorporates additional packing and processing areas as well as new shipping and receiving warehouse areas.

The food-grade packing and processing areas have been designed for the owner’s operations and equipment, including multi-level equipment mezzanines.  The existing warehouse space was also renovated to provide a new food-grade processing area with a multi-level equipment mezzanine and production observation areas.

The new warehouse area includes dock positions for both shipping and receiving with a driver’s entrance to the office support area. The warehouse area includes pallet racking for products and ingredients and the facility is equipped throughout with high-speed doors for forklift traffic.

Insulated Tilt-Up concrete panels and structural steel were used in the new expansion to match the existing facility.  The design of the facility includes all mechanical, plumbing and electrical systems for the operation of the facility.

The state-of-the-art Blending Innovation Center increases Trouw’s Highland campus, which includes a premix plant, a warehouse and two office buildings and provides just over 32,000 square feet of production, packaging, warehouse, office and support space.

The original building was also constructed by The Korte Company and was completed in 2003.
