BACKGROUND

Clemens Food Group, a hog farming, food production, logistical services, and transportation company, hired Grey Construction to design and build Clemens Food Group’s new 656,000 sq. ft. pork processing operation in Coldwater, Michigan. After choosing Goyette as their mechanical contractor, Ferguson Industrial was selected as the PVF supplier and quickly joined the team to provide products and technical support during construction planning.

The project was awarded in phases as the processing facility was designed. Goyette awarded Ferguson Industrial the project based on our relationship, national footprint, product selection, service, and technical expertise for the design phase. “I feel that logistically, we are the only company in Michigan that could have supplied all of this material for this project mainly due to our distribution centers and product offerings,” said Lee Johnson, Area Sales Manager.

Utilizing our expansive nationwide resources, from collaborating with Ferguson Industrial design-build experts and associates across the country to our distribution centers and partners, we were able to secure pipe and stainless steel fittings from around the country quickly and efficiently while staying competitively priced.

Due to our success on this project as collaborators and partners, we are partnering on future projects with Goyette Mechanical and Grey Construction.
