Project Scope:

IPS was contracted by Smucker’s to build it’s the Chilly Willy project. The purpose of the project was to upgrade the conditioned and unconditioned spaces throughout the Food Processing facility. IPS installed 1200 tons of cooling with new chillers, cooling towers, pumps, air handling units, storage tanks, air separators, insulation, power wiring and controls.   These upgrades increased overall productivity in the facility by bringing cooling to areas that did not have it and improved areas that were already conditioned. In addition, Smucker’s saved monies by installing energy efficient equipment on line and retired inefficient equipment.


Smucker’s was challenged with budget constraints on this project. IPS offered to the owner value engineering ideas on this project which saved the owner over 12.5% on the overall budget. IPS researched and found alternate means and methods in routing the conduit and piping throughout the plant. IPS pre-wired and pre-piped the Air Handling Units before they were set on the roof with a crane. IPS fabricated the large bore piping offsite and modularized it for a cost-effective installation. Smucker’s was so impressed with the workmanship, productivity and attention to the customer’s needs that IPS bid and was awarded a multi-year maintenance contract at this facility.

Project Scope:

IPS was contracted to construct a 40,000 square foot addition for Amcor’s plastic blow molding operations. IPS was responsible for the installation of 10,000 feet of process piping (carbon, stainless steel, and PVC). Systems include: process chill water, high/low pressure (600 psi/125 psi) compressed air, process cooling water, process steam, process condensate, and close tolerance process climate controls.

The machinery portion of the contract included the installation of: (3) 750 horse power three stage air compressors, (1) 250 ton process chiller, (1) 1,000 ton cooling tower, (2) 3,500 CFM built up custom air handler, (2) Sidel SBO 20 Blow Molders, (3) palletizing lines, (3) depalletizing lines, 1,000 linear feet of airveyor, and many other material handling and conveyance systems.


Along with a very tight schedule, these process systems had to be installed while the building was still under construction.  IPS also had to overcome the language barrier while working side by side with technicians from France, and Italy.
