Dennis Paper & Food Service - Hampden, ME

Multiple design-build and refrigeration engineering solutions were used at this food service distribution center.

Due to an increase in sales and a growing customer base, Dennis Paper & Food Service has used Food Tech on two different expansions at their distribution center in Maine. Food Tech won the two projects thanks to their expertise in food inventory management systems and cold storage construction. 

Together, the two projects totaled over 53,000 square feet and involved multiple design-build and refrigeration engineering solutions. Food Tech’s food warehouse design included storage racks slotted for a mix of fast, medium, and slow-moving items in order to increase order selector productivity. Additionally, Food Tech competitively bid all building trades at the subcontractor and supplier level which provided considerable cost savings to Dennis.

During these projects, Food Tech provided the following:

  • Design-build services 
  • Cold storage construction
  • Industrial refrigeration systems, including Freon refrigeration
  • Structural racks for increased order selector productivity
