Industrial Constructors/Managers, Inc. (ICM), a Class A General Contractor specializing in industrial construction and plant maintenance, was recently 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.
Most of the equipment currently being installed is constructed of stainless steel, which is a notoriously 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 towards a palletizer wrapping the product and puts it on a truck
Burns & McDonnell is the general contractor for the project and serves as the construction and engineer manager for the company.
