Donuts are delightful. Baking donuts? That can be messy. To ensure the Maplehurst bakery met FDA wash-down requirements, Lee Company replaced the plant’s extensive hot water system, tripling the facility’s hot-water capacity. The on-site work – including all piping connections, flue connections, electrical and startups – was completed over five days, without interrupting plant operations. Lee Company also provided design/build services for a new frozen dough line, allowing the bakery to expand business with shipments throughout the country. This work included setting four DX AAON rooftop units in place in four hours to minimize disruptions. You do not delay donuts!
