Peru, Indiana Feedmill Wins Multiple Awards

On October 18, 2018 Todd & Sargent received the 2018 Associated Builders and Contractors Excellence in Construction Award for the OP Nutrition Swine Feedmill in Peru, Indiana. The project also received the Project of the Year award for Excellence in Concrete Construction from the Indiana Ready Mix Concrete Association.

OP Nutrition’s 4,800 ton per week swine feedmill includes 330,000 bushels of whole grain storage, over 2,000 tons of bulk ingredient storage in 20 bins, and over 1,200 tons of finished feed bulk storage in 12 bins. Construction began in March 2017 with a wet spring and went into an unusually rainy summer, where the crew worked 12-hour shifts for 14 days straight to complete back-to-back slips of the mill and corn silos. The mill is designed to produce about 500 million pounds of feed each year with the majority to be delivered to local farms. 

“This project is an example of the innovation and commitment to outstanding craftsmanship that embodies merit shop construction. The superior workmanship illustrates the high level of quality produced by merit shop contractors”, said Greg Spenner, ABC of Iowa President and CEO.

OP Nutrition is a subsidiary of Indiana Packers and a national leader in the swine industry. Indiana Packers was founded in 1991 and specializes in the processing of premium pork products and markets for retail product under the “Indiana Kitchen” brand.
