St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) July 10, 2014

EPIC Systems, Inc. recently installed a liquid processing system at International Food Products new $20 million facility in St. Louis, MO. The pre-engineered sanitary blending skids are equipped with multiple batch mixing systems and will be integrated by EPIC Systems with seven liquid and powder packaging lines.

EPIC utilized a modular process approach to manufacture the systems during site civil construction. Onsite layout, utilities and a mechanical room was designed and completed by EPIC during construction. Through parallel construction, we were able to improve efficiency and shorten the project timeline, says John Schott, President of EPIC Systems, Inc.

The automated batching systems are designed to increase capacity and efficency on International Food Products liquid process lines. This facility is a perfect fit for EPICs unique modular process and packaging line capabilities, Schott explained. The greenfield facility is being installed at the location of the former Ford Motor Co. plant in Hazelwood, MO.

The next step in the project development is the integration of the packaging lines. Four of the seven semi-automated packaging lines will be new. The other two lines will be relocated and retrofitted. EPIC will perform FAT on site and will fully test the modular process systems before operation.

The new 227,500 square foot industrial plant combines a distribution center with R&D operations for International Food Products. The company is family owned and employs 150 employees in the St. Louis region. Financing is provided by J.P. Morgan and is a joint venture between Prudential and Panattoni Development Company. International Food Products is the first business to move into Aviator Business Park. The development is a mixed-use business development.
