•  When Dreyer’s combined its ice cream business with that of Nestlé’s, expansion of East Coast manufacturing and distribution capacity was one of the highest priorities in rationalizing the merger. Dennis Group was selected as a partner for the evaluation and execution of this major facility and process expansion project.

Project Highlights

  • The project involved acquiring and re-zoning 40 acres of property, increasing the size of the facility six fold to over 600,000 SF, creating a 23,000 pallet minus 20 degree distribution center, and adding 10 new ice cream and frozen yogurt lines.
  • This major undertaking was affected over a two year construction period, and was accomplished without sacrificing a single minute of the existing facility’s available capacity.
