New CRAiLAR Facility: update in pictures

02/05/2012 at 12:40 pm 2 comments

We’ve been working fervently at our new CRAiLAR facility in Pamplico, SC, since we announced signing the lease in March this year.   As one can imagine, it’s not overnight that you can repurpose a former spinning mill into a newly designed and engineered facility, but we’re doing just that. Engineering the blueprints and purchasing new equipment began a while ago, and now we’re very happy and extremely proud to put these months of planning and hard work into action.  We also thought it would be interesting to show everyone what we’re up to, keeping you updated on our activities and progress along the way.  It’s certainly turning out to be dusty, sweaty, exhausting work, but we’d have it no other way.  There’s nothing we like better than getting some dirt under our fingernails.

We’re raising the roof, so the ceiling comes down first.

The dust promises to only get heavier, please stay in touch and look out for further updates… next project: Harvest time.
Speak to you soon!
