Food and Beverage

Supplying the Food-and-Beverage Industry with Safe and Productive Service

The food-and-beverage industry, while ripe with opportunity, also faces challenges from intense competition, thin profit margins, changing consumer preferences, rising costs, and new regulations.

Food-and-beverage manufacturers are turning to advanced technology, automated systems, and cutting-edge machinery and equipment to do more with less. Dependence on automated systems and machinery also means that any disruption, equipment failure, or unplanned downtime could be disastrous for production.

Millwrights from the Southeastern Carpenters Regional Council understand all the new technology, and we possess the skills, specialized training, and hands-on experience to safely, quickly, and properly complete the work. We create a corps of jobsite leaders through communication and leadership training to keep the workplace productive and instill a teamoriented attitude. We are an asset to contractors serving this industry because we train specifically for the unique demands of the food-andbeverage industry.

We are experienced, trained, and excel in high-speed bottling, canning, wrapping, and packaging equipment.
