Project Scope:

IPS has a long standing partnership with Smucker’s, helping to provide mechanical and electrical process solutions that allow the firm to deliver the quality baking mixes, jams and jellies that have become a staple in households worldwide.

IPS was contracted to install an effluent pre-treatment facility at the Toledo plant. The project began with IPS implementing modifications to the existing process drainage system, allowing for the new facility to be incorporated into the process.

IPS self-performed all the electrical, plumbing, mechanical, controls, and equipment installation necessary to chemically treat the water as it is released from the plant. The intricate controls monitor the flow of water and optimize the use of chemicals. The pre-treatment facility separates grease and oils, aerates, and neutralizes the water. The pretreated effluent is then able to be conveyed to the city’s wastewater treatment system.


Understanding the importance of maintaining a continuous manufacturing process throughout the project, IPS worked closely with Smucker’s to develop a schedule that ensured work was completed without interruption to production.

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.
