Dedication to Efficiency in Every Phase
It’s in the consistency of following a unique recipe that sets your product apart. Every ingredient is measured precisely; each step in the process is exact. Dedication to every detail ensures success, batch after batch, line after line.
The Austin Company understands the special nature of the confectionary industry. For over 140 years, we have been a leader in the food, beverage and consumer products industries. Decade after decade, we follow a recipe for efficient design-build projects that allow confectionary companies to expand and succeed.
Our expertise and experience extend beyond designing and building processing facilities. We know confectionary equipment and the processes – from starch moguls and the circulation of liquid chocolate, to cooling tunnels and high-speed custom packaging machines.
We know the industry trends – the need for increased automation and for more attractive, brighter work areas that help recruit and retain employees.
We know the challenges you face: new products and the rush to market; plant expansions that must not interrupt current production; and always, adherence to food safety.
Austin’s fully integrated team uses a stepped approach – The Austin Method® — beginning with preliminary design, followed by preliminary engineering, then detailed engineering and construction. This stepped approach ensures we do it right the first time and could shave months off the schedule for a large manufacturing plant.
We look for efficiency in every phase of the project and in every aspect of the design. When planning an expansion, we ensure our clients experience little or no down time or lost production and avoid food safety issues.
