DENVER, CO — Industrial Constructors/Managers, Inc. (ICM) announces it was contracted to install three new equipment lines at the J.M. Smucker Manufacturing Plant located in Longmont. The contract is part of the plant’s new 240,000-square-foot addition to its existing facility, which broke ground in May 2020.

ICM’s contract is worth $1.5 million and includes the installation of several new conveyor belts that will tie all three new lines of equipment together, helping to increase production.

“Just like most construction projects today, managing the supply chain of materials has been the hardest aspect,” said Project Manager Greg Baladez. “Most of the equipment could only be sourced from overseas, which has made it challenging to keep on schedule. Despite some initial setbacks on owner-supplied equipment, the new equipment lines should be completed this summer.”

Most of the equipment that is being installed is constructed of stainless steel, a delicate material. The largest piece of equipment weighs roughly 18,000 pounds, while the smaller equipment weighs between a few hundred to several thousand pounds. The equipment lines consist of various conveyors that pull the product toward a palletizer that wraps the product and puts it on a truck for distribution. Burns & McDonnell is the general contractor for the project and serves as the construction and engineer manager for the company.

“The food and beverage industry is one that we have a lot of experience in, having recently helped the Coors Brewery in Golden with the first step of their expansion in 2020,” said Estimator Bill Niday. “We pride ourselves on providing turnkey, fast-track solutions for all types of structural steel needs — from new structural steel, plant expansions, and equipment support, to fabrication and installations and the retrofitting of safety and access platforms, handrails, and stairs.”
