ESI Group selected for Nueske’s Expansion Project

ESI Group partners with Nueske’s to expand their existing Manufacturing Facility

Hartland, Wis. – After two years of meticulous research and planning Nueske’s, a world leader of smoked meat products, will be expanding their existing manufacturing facility in Wittenberg, Wisconsin.  ESI Group USA has been chosen as their trusted design-build provider.  Tanya Nueske, CEO, shared at their groundbreaking event, “This 108,000 square foot expansion will provide us with the space and equipment necessary to keep us on the leading edge of our business, all the while maintaining the superior quality and high standards we are best known for.”  “We are committed to using our old-fashioned smoking methods and time-tested recipes that have been passed down through the generations to produce a product that is second to none.”

Nueske’s Applewood Smoked Meats, founded in 1933 and now in its third generation of family ownership will not only double their production capacity but also create around 65 new jobs for the Wittenberg community.  The facility will utilize many energy saving systems including a state-of-the-art Ammonia refrigeration system, LED lighting with motion detection, and vertical storing dock levelers.  All products will continue to be shipped from and received on a refrigerated dock.

President Brad Barke states, “ESI is excited about the opportunity to complete a process expansion of this complexity for Nueske’s in our home state of Wisconsin.”  “It will feature the most stringent food safety features in the industry.”  “ESI Group, also a family business, celebrates 25 years of service to the food and beverage industries in 2016.”  “We understand first-hand how important it is to provide quality facilities for our clients to produce quality products that will ensure their businesses thrive.”
